: is it that you'd catch something like Hepatitis from a henna bottle?
As far as I'm aware, hepatitus has to be a fluid to fluid
transmission. I suppose if you put hepatitus INTO your cone and put
it into a wet body part where there is an entrance or lesion ......
there could be transmission. But ..... if there is no hepatitus in
your henna cone, and it's not going into a breach in someone's body,
..... it's strictly from paranoia.
In tattooing, if a person doesn't use NEW STERILE INK in a NEW
STERILE INK DISH, and NEW STERILE NEEDLES and NEW STERILE WIPES and
NEW STERILE LATEX GLOVES there can certainly be hepatitus transmission
(as well as other body fluid friendly diseases. Much hepatitus was
transmitted by using the same ink pot and ink from one client to the
next, as it took a while for people to realize the hepatitus could
live in the ink pot for a while, then get poked straight into the skin
with the needle.
As long as henna prepared without body fluids or contaminants
incorporated, and as long as it's going onto unbroken skin ...... I
don't see any disease transmission. YOu could prepare a fresh little
mylar cone for each individual if they seem expecially tweeky.....
