I've been hennaing myself for a few months. I started with 100 grams
(enough to make and correct some mistakes :) of Jamila from Castle
Arts and a Jaq bottle with a .09 tip (.09 is a larger tip, but I
wanted to start out with easier, bolder designs). I also got a bottle
of Tea Tree oil from a natural foods store.

I got other supplies (lemon juice, lunch baggies) from the grocery
and recipes from the internet (mostly here) along with all the advice
and patterns I needed to start. I think that's all you really'll get a good idea of what to do and if you like it
without spending a lot of money.

I've never been very artistic, but I found that I can now look at a
pattern and copy it free hand onto myself nicely and prettily and its
very satisfying. It's also fun to raise eyebrows at work :) Good

: I had a henna design done for me at an art festival, and now I am
: really interested in trying it myself. What supplies would a first
: timer need? I am not sure whether I should use the cone (or
: applicator or the sqeeze bottle applicator. And what differences
: there between using tea and lemon juice as compared to the
: oils? Can anyone recommend a good starter kit?
: Thanks!
