In reply to: To waiver or not to waiver? posted by Jenna on May 13, 2002 at 02:21:27:

Hi Jenna,

when I first started out I did the same thing (great idea by the way!
more people should try it) though more informally at parties and
such. I always told people what was in the mix, but I think a waiver
is unnecessary.
You might want to ask them if they have sensitive skin; we did this
with Gilded Lilies when we were using clove and eucalyptus oil
directly on the skin. But then at a busy festival we'd forget in the
heat of everything and never had a problem. Never used waivers either.
I guess there are people here using waivers for henna, personally I
think it's excessive, and could cause them to have doubts or fears
about the safety of henna. (PPD slingers use waivers, tattooists and
piercers use waivers...I think you're putting henna in the category of
"something potentially dangerous" if you have a waiver)
Explaining to them what's in it, or a small patch test, should
satisfy even the most paranoid, especially when combined with a
reassuring smile and henna all over you!
I often tell worried parents, etc that I am very sensitive to all
kinds of chemicals (true; i can smell a cigarette at 500 feet) and
have never had a problem. this works best of course when they can't
see my tattoos!
have fun,
