Add 1 to 2 drops of "gonzo" terp for each ounce of powder your
originally mixed up. Cajeput, Tea Tree and ravensara all qualify as
gonzo. If you think the terp is not gonzo, go for 2. (if you think
you have diluted EO, or if you're using a terp that's not as long in
monoterpene alcohols). Tea Tree is nearly always gonzo, because it's
level of terpineol is regulated at around 40%.

I think there is such a thing as overterping, because other people
have reported such, but I haven't seen it myself.

Next time I have to do a "Serious Henna Test", I'll set up a trial to
visualize the range of terp drops per ounce so we have a clear answer
on "how much" is enough.
