Tips on Creating Powdered Lavender

Working with different dried herbs in face masks and cleansing powders has taught me that some herbs are far trickier to transform into a 'proper' powder than others.

Take lavender.

I love lavender to pieces, but at the same time, it can drive me absolutely batty. Buying it in powdered form hasn't brought me much joy – regardless of supplier.

It's entirely possible that I'm overly picky, but in my book, a face cleansing powder should not contain annoying bits that keep sticking to the skin after everything else has willingly rinsed away.

Today's challenge: Turning dried lavender into a powder that rinses away without leaving bits sticking to your face.
