Making Your Own Powder
To make a powder, you will need a mortar and pestle to start, and at least three to five different ingredients of equal proportions. As with oils, the more ingredients, the stronger the powder. Powders usually smell good; to retain that nice fragrance, add Orris Root Powder.
To incorporate color in a powder, purchase a talc (in various hues) and add the talc in equal portion to the herbs. The colored talc brings in the psychological correspondences of color. Most measurements in powders are of an equal number. For example, if I use 1/8 teaspoon of lavender, 1/8 teaspoon of sandalwood, 1/8 teaspoon of angelica, 1/8 teaspoon of orange peel, and 1/8 teaspoon of frankincense to make angel powder, I would add 1/8 teaspoon of colored talc. The color of the talc you use is entirely up to you. For my angel powder, I use 1/8 teaspoon of purple or blue talc.
