To be sure you get great color, I make henna tea to add to the paste. Be sure you are not allergic to any of the following ingredients:
Black tea, Cloves, Turmeric, Fenugreek, Lemon, Lime, Paprika, Lavender Oil, Cajeput Oil, Neroli Oil, Pomegranate juice, Roses, Fenugreek, Cardamom or Curry ingredients.
If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, call to have a special henna paste prepared for you.
The colors you see in the tattoo to the left are "gilding", colored gel added after the henna paste is dried. These colors are only good for the day.
The henna paste takes 48 hours to prepare in two stages."Grade AAA" henna powder is combined with lemon juice and allowed to rest in the sun for a day. Then essential oils are added and the paste is allowed to rest again to be sure all dye is released.
