For this badge bit, you will create echinacea syrup &/or gummies:
- Make a journal page about a recipe for echinacea syrup/gummies along with dosage information.
- Make echinacea syrup/gummies, with a picture of it being made, and of it being finished.

- Make a journal page about the uses and attributes and how to ID and how to grow echinacea. Add it to the herb section.

Here are some links to guide you in researching echinacea and in creating your syrup/gummies:
