I just terped my mix.

I forgot the sugar so I went back to add it. Then I added 2 or 3 ml
of Cajeput, 1 ml of Ravensara and a capful of Tea Tree. Just in case
one won't work the others will. :) The Cajeput and Ravensara were
quite strong so I added more paste, then the Tea Tree. I mixed all
but maybe a spoon of powder of a 100 gram box of Jamila.( I'm
planning to henna full hands and feet designs and maybe arms to test)
It still smells extremely strong.
Even though my oils smelled subtle in the bottles once they mixed
with the henna they were so strong!

First I tested the Jamila by itself. It was very good staining bright
rich orange quickly when smudged on my hand after a few seconds.
While mixing the terps I had a few dots of paste fall on my hand and
finger the dots were small like when something splatters and tiny
specks will
land here and there. I instantly wiped it off and found the terped
paste left a darker orange stain. I washed my hands afterwards. The
plain henna spots were larger so they seemed to have endured the
washing better.

Should I leave the terped henna exposed to air or put a ziplock or
saran wrap over it?
The air condition is off and so is the fan. The air is warm and
comfortable to me though others in the house think its hot.

Thanks for the help!
