No problem with the duping...who around here hasn't at some time or
As Kenzi stated, know what kind of premix you are using will be
helpful. With some of the premixes in the tubes, adding a bit of
cajeput, ravensara, eucalyptus (globius) or tea tree oil can
sometimes perk up the stain for you.
Sometimes you are just looking for something much different in a
stain that the premix you are using can't do for you no matter how
much you perk it up. In that case you might want to look at the
various henna powders that are available and the stains that result
from them. That way you open up a palette of colors available with
henna powders to yourself. I have many on my website (link below)
and other sellers around here have other powders.
Learning the process and working with different recipes will be
important to you in order for you to find your favorite recipe and
process. On my website you can go to my contact page and send am
email to receive my recipe and instructions pages. You might want to
look at a number of different recipes and processes and find out what
make sense to and for you. I am also a basic is best person. Lemon
juice (concentrate), sugar, henna powder and cajeput....that is it.
And a less is more person...I only use 15 to 20 drops of cajeput to
two tablespoons of henna powder.
If you are not mixing your henna powder to make your own paste yet, I
do encourage you to try it. It gives you more control over your
outcome, but mainly it is just a fun and relaxing thing to do. If
you have any questions about individual recipes and want more
information, just post or email folks. That is always helpful when
you are beginning to work with mixing your own pastes.
