It sounds like everything's fine, except with the welting, you're
having a reaction to something in the paste. It's probably not the
henna. More likely it's the lemon juice or the oil. Some people use
clove oil or black walnut powder, which can be irritants. Henna is a
coolant on your skin, and the oil adds to that effect, so that's
totally normal and harmless. Ask her what kind of oil she uses so
you can avoid it in the future. If she won't tell you what's in it,
be very, very wary. Henna folks shouldn't have anything to hide.
