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.


(from: Herbal Academy)

For this badge bit, you will create a calendula blossom salve
 - Make a journal page about the uses and attributes and and how to ID and how to grow calendula. Add it to the herb section.
 - Make a journal page about the uses and attributes and a recipe for a calendula salve.
 - Make a calendula salve, with a picture of it being made, and of it being finished.

Here are some links to guide you in researching calendula and in creating your salve:
  How To Make Calendula Salve – Herbal Academy
  Calendula Uses - Mountain Rose Herbs
  Calendula Salve Recipe - Mommypotamus
  Calendula, and Edible and Medicinal Flower - Chestnut School of Herbal Medicine


To show you've completed this Badge Bit, you must post:
 - a picture of your journal page about calendula salve
 - a picture of your journal page about calendula's attributes
 - a picture of your calendula flowers (they can be harvested or store-bought)
 - a picture of your flowers in solution with a description of what oil and other ingredients you used
 - a picture of your completed salve in its permanent, labeled container/jar
 
Paper beats rock. Scissors beats tiny ad.
