I bought a batch of Kimia and it REALLY needed sifting. I think it
was just a fluke. I sifted it twice and it needed it both times! I
mixed it with my own brew of black coffee, cardamom, fenugreek, clove
and black walnut hulls; then I added some eucalyptus oil and let it
sit for about 24-36 hours. The stain was pretty much light
brown/dark orange on me. I was kind of disappointed-- but I'm going
to give it another try with lemon juice & a dash of cajeput. I have
come to understand that Kimia is a lady that needs coaxing.
Interestingly, I bought some Jamila and it stains pretty dark, but
the powder is kind of brown whereas the Kimia is neon green. And the
Jamila needed NO sifting whatsoever.
