a numbered pic of the terp test:
The numbers represent the number of weeks the paste was frozen.
There is a dot of fresh, unfrozen paste at each end for comparison.
There is a gradual lightening up the arm from the wrist.... so
everyone put the paste samples in reverse order up opposite sides of
the line to compensate for that effect.
This test demonstrates that if you mix 25 g. Jamila henna with lemon
juice, leave it overnight, terp with 25 drops of Tea Tree oil, and
immediately bag and freeze it .... prepare fresh paste the same way
...... the thawed and fresh pastes give identical stains after 24
hours resting, and the length of time frozen does not appear to make
any difference in stain color.
This is the fabulous Alissa's arm, though everyone else got comparible
Thank you so much, Shel, little Catherine, Chris, Txilar, Rebecca,
Alissa, Lorry, Larry ... and everyone else! Henna people owe you a
big hug for bravely baring your arms for testing so everyone can reap
the benefits at this summer's fairs!
