Glad to help! HOpe this will get you those deep dark stains youre
hoping for.

Yup my kitchen can be pretty intense smelling when henna is sitting
around to cure. However, I've never mixed all 3 terps like you
descirbe, and I imagine they aren't exactly complimentary to the
nose.

Next time, you may want to try a much smaller batch, and just one
terp oil at a time until you find the one you like best. Ravensara is
great, but very expensive. Also, it seems to have a slightly shorter
lifespan. Tea tree never got me dark stains, but it would get fast
ones. Caj I like best.
