For this badge bit, you will create a comfrey leaf poultice.
- Make a journal page about a recipe for comfrey leaf poultice along with dosage information.
- Make comfrey leaf poultice, with pictures of it being made, and of it being finished.

Optional:

My husband hurt his knee so it is time to try the comfrey poultice.   I debated the use of the small electric mixer instead of a mortar/pestal but decided that if I needed a back hoe to build my first huglebed then I could use the mixer.  I also decided to create a dedicated rag system to keep large enough cloth lengths for the poultice to wrap around the knee.

Staff note (Rob Lineberger) :

Hey Jen this is very close. Just missing this requirement:

Your journal page about your recipe and dosage information for comfrey leaf poultice

the rest looks good though!

Staff note (Rob Lineberger) :

Thanks for adding that. This is now certified!
