Hi Maureen,
I think the longest period of time couldn't have been longer that 3
months, and I think it must have been 2.

I have always used eucalyptus oil in my paste, which is considered a
minor terp I guess. And I have frozen that.

I think coming into this summer season we may be able to find out a
bit more on how long paste can be frozen. Maybe freeze a tablespoon
each month and label it and then just wait until fall?

: Hi Justine,
: What is the outter time limit you have kept your paste in the
: freezer? I put some henna paste in the freezer back in early
: and just forgot it was there. I took it out in December
: I am looking at about 5 months. It thawed and had separated. When
: mixed it back up it had lost all of its staining ability. I take
: that five months may be too long.
: Also, in your experience, does this work with and without terps? I
: can't remember if what I put in the freezer was terped or not.
: Thanks and take care.
: Maureen
