What can come along with the problem that there are sooooo many
different things called eucalyptus oil, is that I found some to have
a negative effect on the stain. A while back...probably winter
before last...I used a eucalyptus oil to prepare the skin (cause that
is what someone told me would make the henna stain better)...but
found that the particular eucalyptus oil I used not only interfered
with the stain development but also turned the skin where applied
white with a film it left behind. I have no idea what was in it but
it had something in it that was counterproductive to henna staining.
So my experience was that it not only did not have a positive effect,
it had a negative effect. Even if it had no effect at all, I don't
see adding anything to your paste without knowing exactly what role
it plays in arriving at your ultimate goal: Excellent stain.

Take care.
