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.

(Image from: Nourishing Herbalist and Ethno Herbalist)

For this badge bit, you will create echinacea syrup &/or gummies
- Make a journal page about the uses and attributes and and how to ID and how to grow echinacea. Add it to the herb section.
- Make a journal page about the uses and attributes and a recipe for echinacea syrup/gummies.
- Make echinacea syrup/gummies, with a picture of it being made, and of it being finished.

Here are some links to guide you in researching echinacea and in creating your syrup/gummies:
Background on echinacea
Flu Busting Echinacea and Elderberry Syrup
Make Your Own Cough Syrup with Echinacea and Licorice
Growing Echinacea: The Complete Guide to Plant, Grow, and Harvest Echinacea

To document this BB, post pictures or a 2-minute video depicting the following:
  • Your journal page about echinacea syrup
  • Your journal page about echinacea's attributes
  • Your echinaceas (they can be harvested or store-bought)
  • Your echinacea in a saucepan
  • Your completed echinacea syrup or gummies in a labeled container

    You get good luck from rubbing the belly of a tiny ad:
