While the paste is thawing, and might be warming to the temperature
of the water, there is a core of henna paste that remains
frozen/cold. My tap water doesn't get extremely hot, we have
children so the hot water tank is turned down enough that it won't
Don't forget...don't immerse the open tip in the water to thaw.
