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

In this badge bit, you will harvest, dry and store mullein leaf.

You need to dry enough to make a tea, infusion or decoction. If you have not already, you will also make a journal page about the uses and attributes and how to ID and how to grow the herb

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must post:
- a picture of your fresh herbs being harvested
- a picture of your herbs drying (hanging, in a dehydrator, or in a bag, etc)
- a picture of your herbs in a sealed and labelled container.
    - label shows where the herbs came from, the date and method of drying.
- (optional) a picture of your journal page listing the attributes and uses of the herb.

Hi guys, here's my submission for Mullein, which you can see I've picked/harvested fresh, dried by hanging up in a well-ventilated spot by a door but not in direct light, and then once dry have stored and labelled in a glass jar. I've also included my herb journal entry for mullein tea. I've heard that mullein is also a great herb to smoke which we have since tried this week and it's jolly good! Thanks :)

Looks great! I certify this as complete. I'm out of apples myself but you'll get one.
