In reply to: Trace amounts of metal can be dissolved in solution. posted by Faery Ring on August 23, 2001 at 23:09:36:

I was using finely powdered black iron oxide, and tried disolving it
in solution then into the paste. I tried that after seeing black iron
oxide as a prepmix paste constituent.

I was briefly encouraged when I removed the paste, as it looked like
the stain was darker, but this was only a surface effect. After 1
day, the pastes with and without iron were identical in stain.

However, the browner hennaes, I believe, grow in iron rich soil. (ie
Rajasthan) (maybe someday Oklahoma) Perhaps henna can carry its own
