Yes, natural henna can hemolyze blood, but a little flake of natural
henna isn't going to hemolyze enough of anything in a tummy to cause a
problem. Stirring a bit of henna powder into tea and drinking it is
an old Moroccan remedy for upset stomach that I don't recommend anyone
anywhere try. Folk remedies are often inneffective and can be dangerous.

Ingestion of eucalyptus essential oil is potentially fatal, but I
don't know amount per body weight necessary for such.

Ingestion of PPD "black henna" is FATAL.
