This is  a Badge Bit (BB) that is art of the PEP Curiculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Natural Medicine.

For this BB you will create a decoction from ginger root.

Decoction is a method of extraction by boiling herbal or plant material to dissolve the chemicals of the material, which may include stems, roots, bark and rhizomes.

- Make a journal page about the uses and attributes of ginger and how to prepare root. Add it to the herb section.
- Make a journal page about the uses and attributes and a recipe for ginger root decoction
- Make the decoction, and take a picture of it being made, and of it being finished.

Drawing of ginger plant from Richard Whelan's website:


Very good page with information on ginger:

Webpage with info on how to make a decoction in general:

https://www.motherearthliving.com/health-and-wellness/herbal-apothecary-101-herbal-decoction

To show you've completed this BB you must post pictures of the following:

- the journal page showing the attibutes of ginger and how to prepare it
- the journal page showing the attibutes of the ginger decoction
- picture of the ginger root ready to be made into decoction
- picture of the decoction being made
- picture of the finished decoction in its labeled jar.
