In reply to: here's the recipe! posted by Alissa on July 22, 2002 at 02:40:21:

: Here's my mix that I jsut used, and it's the same recipe that my
: latest fan pics were done with.
: Mix and let sit for 12 + hours:
: 4 spoons henna powder (Jamila is what I often use)
: lemon juice
: about 1 shy spoon sugar
: 3 dropperfuls of cajeput (about 2 ml per dropperful) I use the
: Amaranthine, good oil good enough price.
: Add and let sit for 12+ hours, or until use:
: 18 drops cardamom (i use aura cacia brand)
: 10 drops clove bud (wyndmere brand)
: 25+ drops of nutmeg
: You can pretty much follow your nose after this point. you might
: prefer more clove for spicier chai, or more nutmeg (like i do) for
: sweeter chai scented paste. more cardamom would of course take over
: strongly floral scent, so not as chai-like.
: I like to let it stew for about a day before using during summer,
: wakes up my paste nicely. House is about 75 degrees most days.
: Hope this helps!
