For this badge bit, you will create cottonwood bud infused oil (also known as Balm of Giliad)
 - Make a journal page about the uses and attributes and and how to ID and how to grow cottonwood. Add it to the herb section.
 - Make a journal page about the uses and attributes and a recipe for a cottonwood bud infused oil.
 - Make a cottonwood bud infused oil, with a picture of it being made, and of it being finished.

Here are some links to guide you in researching cottonwood and in creating your cottonwood bud infused oil:
