hey everyone,

Well, I finally got Kimia to come through for me. It's been an
interesting journey, but my palm is a lovely deep black cherry. This
is what I did: I mixed the henna with lemon juice last Thursday
evening. On Friday evening I added cajeput to terp it (but not a
whole bunch. ) I knew Kimia tends to be lazy, so I let it sit on
Saturday and sort of farted around with it a little bit on Sunday;
but Monday is when I really did my work. My house has been about 70
degrees, maybe 75 in the middle of the day. I let the paste stay on
overnight, wrapped in TP. It finally darkened to a lovely black
cherry color today!

The funny thing, though, was that I was playing around with it again
last night-- just 24 hrs after doing my palm-- and it's hardly
stained at all. Interesting that there was such a quick demise in
just one day! But I'm so excited that I finally got the beautiful
cherry red color that everyone has been talking about. People can
see my palm from 50 paces, LOL
