Well I for one have had so far 2 people who have had some reactions
to the oils I use (Cajeput was a bit too harsh for their skin it
seemed) But my policy has always been very open and will remain that
way. If it ever feels anything but cool, immediately go wash it off
and come see me, I carry aloe oil and much lighter ingredients if
they wish to try again or I will refund their money immediately.

This said, I'm certain there are many others here who could tell you
of the bad experiances of countless sensative skins or messups that
have been less than nice about the whole ordeal. I personally have a
lawyer on retainer via Pre-Paid Legal ($40 bucks a month and they
handle all contractual paperwork, look over anything legal like a
disclaimer and so forth and generally save you a headache from the
legal end by doing the foot work to find out any city or state codes
that might require certification of some sort to practice the art.

From there I'm a member of the Ye Old World Living History
Foundation, which I found out about from Mrs. Cartwright-Jones' site
(she has an entire section devoted to becoming a professional artist,
I highly recommend it). The Foundation covers its merchants
liablities for $100 a year (no Prorating) for as long as the artisan
is representing themselves as a 'living history exhibit'. I
questioned the representative I talked with extensively and basically
as long as as I was historically oriented in my presentation, the mix
and the designs being requested didn't really matter, so I go to
conventions in full Indian regalia and talk about some of the history
I've managed to pick up, involving in henna and its uses while

But again I'm only just starting out myself so I'm probably not the
best to give advise... you should check out Mrs Cartwright-Jones'
page on it for yourself. A wealth of information and she has been in
the business long enough to know what she's talking about.
