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.



For this BB, you will create an infusion of red clover blossoms. Infusion is a method of extracting desired compounds from plant material by steeping the material in hot or cold water, depending on the plant and its attributes.

To show you’ve completed this Badge Bit, you must post:
- a picture of your red clover blossoms being harvested
- a picture of the infusion being made
- a picture of the finished infusion
