I live in Oklahoma and am very interested in this test. I know our
soil is iron rich...through having soil tested for gardening. Should
I splurge on a plant or several???? What are your thoughts? I would
be very interested.

: I was using finely powdered black iron oxide, and tried disolving
: in solution then into the paste. I tried that after seeing black
: oxide as a prepmix paste constituent.
: I was briefly encouraged when I removed the paste, as it looked
: 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.
: Rajasthan) (maybe someday Oklahoma) Perhaps henna can carry its own
: iron!
