I need some help with my henna. I have a 1/2 ounce applicator
bottle,so i don't want to make more paste than it can hold. I need
to make a hand design. So i need to know how much henna to use (i am
using boiled dried limes and lemon juice). I also bought some oils
today, but i am not sure how much to use in a mixture. I have 1/2
ounce bottles of Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, and Lavender for the smell.
I'm not sure how much powder henna to start off with to make a hand
design, and how many drops of oil to add. The lady i bought it off
of said they were strong and had to be diluted if added directly to
the skin, and that it will probably not take very much to have a dark
stain. I just don't want to make to much, and need to know the right
measurements. Could someone please give me some advice? You can e-
mail me at, or i wil check back in a few day.

Thank you so much for any help you can gve.
