: I'm sorry, I just realized I forgot to post the end results.
: To recap, I made up a bunch of henna as usual and separated it out
: into 50-gram batches. I added 1/4 lm, 1/2 ml, 1ml, 2ml, 3ml, 4ml,
: 5ml, and 6ml of cajeput oil to each and let them develop for 24
: hours. I've been using 5ml, or 1 teaspoon, for this much. I then
: applied them to my shin in the now-classic henna testing leaf
: pattern, up one side and down the other. I took pictures (okay,
: they're really out of focus) of them at paste removal, at 4 days,
: 8 days. The fade after that was steady from where it appears at 8
: days.
: What I found was that at first, the colors were about the same.
: it developed, the lesser amounts did not get as dark as the
: The break point seems to be 2-3ml. Based on this test, that's the
: amount I would recommend. This is a convenient number, as
: with CCJ's previous test to see about the effects of freezing, it
: means that 100 grams of powder needs 15ml or 1/2 ounce of oil,
: is how it's usually packaged, and you can freeze what you're not
: going to use immediately.
: Pictures are at the link below.
