Hi Just Botanicals - It's coming up in a day or two and you are going to have to wait for the big reveal! :)

What part of horsetail is used? I have horsetail at a relatives home and they want it gone... Obviously not that easy. But I can use it all. Is it the stem, the "branches or leaves?", the root?

Hi Genna - the ariel parts are used (leaves and stem above the ground). Best of luck!

I'm trying to find a way to use a natural source of silicon in homemade makeup to achieve a smoothe finish like cosmetic creams with silicone. Do you think this is possible with horsetail powder?

Hi Leesee -- My initial thought would be to try and see how it works. I would probably also have a go at making it myself, but it's going to need some serious milling equipment for the powder to become fine enough.
