My Kimia arrived today! I'll be doing some experimenting with
lavender EO and Kimia this weekend and will post the results as soon
as the paste comes off.

On other testing matters, I have been recreating the frozen terp
experiment and can report the exact same results that the Serius gang
got. I mixed up a big batch following the same procedure yall used
and split it into three cones, one was left on my counter and used the
day after it was terped and the other two went into the freezer. Last
I used one of the freezer cones to make wings on my oldest daughter,
and a Moroccan design on my palm. Both turned out fabulously! While
I was working on my oldest, my youngest got the other cone out of the
freezer in case I ran out of paste. I didn't so I put the thawed cone
back in the freezer until the day before yesterday when I did one of
CCJ's designs for dark skin on the back of my hand and a lotus on the
outside of my right knee. Both are dark chocolate. After applying I
put the cone back in the freezer until today when I did a Dr Seuss
character on my youngest daughter's palm and another of CCJ's dark
skin patterns on the outside of the right ankle. Julie scraped her
past off as soon as it was dry so she could ride her bike, mine stayed
on for four hours. Right now both stains are the same dark, dark
orange I got after the first thawing of this cone.

So it looks like we may have hit on a very good way to stock up and
keep henna going longer. We may have found the holy grail of henna in
those terps!

BTW, my recipe is just lemon juice, sugar, Jamilla and tea tree oil.
