Hi Littlefox,

I've used Cajeput for a year now and haven't had anyone have a
reaction to it. Though anything is possible. I think they may be
more likely to have a reaction to the lemon juice than the cajeput.

You will want to check with your customers to find out if they have a
sensitivity to citric fruit. If so, you will want to have a mix
available without the lemon juice just for the customers who react to
it.

Also, there are people who have allergies to just about anything.
So, it is possible that a person may indeed have an allergic reaction
to the pure and natural henna powder. It is rare, but indeed
possible.

You should list all of your ingredients so your customers know what
is in your paste. Then if you want to have them sign a waiver
stating that they have read the ingredients list and been informed
what is in the paste that is being applied and are chosing to have
the henna applied with full knowledge of the ingredients...and to
their knowledge they have not sensitivity to anything in the
paste...then you can.

Some organizers of events will expect that you carry insurance...some
will not. It is a good thing to have. Some homeowner's insurance
will cover you if you have a homebased business that requires you to
sometimes perform your work outside of the home. You might want to
check into that, as well. Vendor's license is often required in some
settings. When an event is organized around here (and it is a pretty
large one), the organizers usually obtain the vendors license for the
vendors attending and provide it to you when you set up. Check into
what the organizers require to be sure what they expect. I am not
aware of anyplace that requires some sort of certification to apply
henna designs.

Take care.

Maureen
