This Badge Bit (BB) is part of the PEP Curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Natural Medicine.

In this BB you will make a decoction from ginger root.  Decoction is a method of extraction by boiling herbal or plant material to dissolve the chemicals of the material, which may include stems, roots, bark, and rhizomes.

Drawing of a ginger plant from Richard Whelan's website:

  - Making  the decoction

I have been using ginger this way for a long time without realizing it was a decoction.  PEP is all about learning new names for old ways of doing things.
