Cleaning Lavender

After the lavender is dry, bundles are removed from their hangers. The rubber band is left on so that the bundles stay together. A coarse screen is stapled to a large picture frame and then placed over a large container. Bundles of lavender are rubbed back and forth between hands so that the lavender bud falls off and falls through the screen. The screen keeps out twigs, leaves, and other large pieces of debris. The container of lavender can be covered and stored in a dry place indefinitely at this stage.
