I think personally i would have them sign a waver,
saying that you are not responcble for any reaction he/she may have.

: 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
: working.
: 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.
