Anyone who ever took organic chemistry in college is supposed to know
how to do it, I've been told it's not difficult, and that it's
possible to get the gear and do it on your back porch. Unfortunately,
I was an art major and know only slightly more than diddly.

Unless your goal is making pre-mix for resale at a profit, there's
probably not much point in going to all the bother. Of course, now
that terps are a no longer a big secret ...... the market for pre-mix
may be diminishing. If the FDA's going to continue to be pissy about
pre-mix, may just as well continue to do what we've been doing ...
messing about in our own kitchens with a folk art, for religious
holidays, family celebrations and education.

Ever so often I get the cosmic nudge that the henna goddess isn't
awfully patient with people who just want to get rich off of her, and
don't have any respect for the vast and lovely history, traditions and
human experience she has to offer. Noticed many "trendi-mehndi"
businesses crashing?
