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 oil infusion of stinging nettle using plant material you harvested. Oil infusion is a method of extracting desired compounds from plant material by steeping the material in warm or cool oil.

Additional Information:
How to Make an Infused Oil

Minimum requirements:
  - Make an infused oil using plant material you harvested
  - Use stinging nettle

To document completion of the BB, provide proof of the following as pictures or a video (< 2 minutes):
 - Harvested plant material (either being harvested or just harvested)
 - Making the infusion (plant material in oil) with a description of the oil and any other ingredients you used
 - Finished (strained) infused oil in its labeled jar
That's a very big dog. I think I want to go home now and hug this tiny ad:
