Hi again,
Ok...was the followup post on that list the actual recipe used? It
was nearly a rosewater tea.
Straight rosewater? I dunno. Doesn't seem very acidic, nor is there
any sugar in it to help fix it to the skin and keep the paste moist.
But, in the follow up post, it was rosewater w/ other stuff added and
one of the things added was sugar.
It's worth a shot to try I suppose. Rosewater is cheap enough for a
small bottle. Smells nice too. Orange water might be a better
But for the one time rosewater post...could have been the
rosewater...could have been a million other factors.


: Again on the henna e-mail list, someone came out with something I'd
: not heard of before, so I thought I'd bring it before the wiser
: on this list to see if folks has any practical experience with it,
: and knowledge of whether or not it worked.
: Someone said that spraying rosewater on a finished henna design
: worked as a great fixative. I'm puzzled. Maybe sugar and
: but plain rosewater?
: Any input?
: Many thanks,
: Jenna
