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.

For this BB, you will create an infusion of rosemary leaves. Infusion is a method of extracting desired compounds from plant material by steeping the material in hot or cold water, depending on the plant and its attributes.

To show you’ve completed this Badge Bit, you must post:
- a picture of your rosemary leaves being harvested
- a picture of the infusion being made
- a picture of the finished infusion

I hear Rosemary is good for a bit of a brain boost, just as well mine needs one after a long week! Just harvested from my small one I potted about a month ago, it's going well!

I picked some rosemary, brought water to a boil, dropped in the rosemary,  turned off the heat, and let it steep for 5 minutes.  It made a strong infusion that I enjoyed.
