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

For this BB you will create a tincture out of echinacea blossom, root, or leaf.

- Make a journal page about a recipe for echinacea blossom, root or leaf tincture along with dosage information.
- Make the echinacea root tincture, and take a picture of it being made, and of it being finished.

- Make a journal page about the uses and attributes of echinacea blossom, root or leaf and how to ID and harvest it. Add it to the herb section.

Rosemary Gladstar video on how to make echinacea root tincture.
