: Isn't ppd a form of, or at least contain, metallic salts?
: It doesn't seem that adding anything called metallic salt to your

Nope ... PPD is a coal tar dye. Metallic salts can be as benign as
iron oxide ... or they can be oxides of other less kindly metals. I
didn't say adding them was a good thing ... I just said they went in
to some pastes. Seems an EXCELLENT reason to stick working out all
the kinks in making one's own pastes with aromatherapy grade terps
and stashing them in the fridge.
