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

For this BB you will create mullein blossom and garlic infused oil:
- Make the infused oil, and take a picture of it being made, and of it being finished.


NOTE!   Some people prefer mullein blossom oil without garlic.   This is acceptable - but you need to add a mention for your reasons for not including garlic.

I made an oil infusion of garlic and mullein blossoms! I used the slow cooker in wheaton labs to speed up the process.
