Hi Jameela,

The essential oil from henna does not make any difference in the
staining capacity of your paste/powder. At least that has been my
experience with it.

If you are speaking about the different Mehndi Oils that are sold
with henna powder to be used before or after applying the paste or
upon paste removal, those are so many different types of oils based
upon what brand you buy that it is hard to say across the board if
any one of those particular oils will have an effect or not. It has
been my experience that none that I have ever used makes any
difference in the stain.

In fact the terps still seem to be the oils that people are using and
finding more consistently impact their stains.

I use the henna essential oil in my soaps I make. But didn't find it
to add anything to the henna paste except as most oils make
the paste a bit more sooth.
