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 uva ursi leaves. 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 uva ursi leaves being harvested
- a picture of the infusion being made
- a picture of the finished infusion

Approved BB submission
Here is my submission for the Natural Medicine Aspect - Sand for Straw - Create and Infusion of Uva Ursi (kinnikinnik) BB.

I harvested kinnikinnik at the Lab during SkIP 2021. This tea tasted fantastic!  I decided to do some research and found that it is good for skincare and urinary tract infections.  Here are some Health Benefits of Uva Ursi.

To document the completion of the BB, I have provided the following:
- a picture of your uva ursi leaves being harvested
- a picture of the infusion being made
- a picture of the finished infusion
