: last year's? How are you terping now? ;)
I'm doing about the same terp as last year. Pretty much the Serious
I mix henna with lemon juice and let it sit 12 hours. I terp ... tea
tree or cajeput, then leave that sit 12 hours. Then I fine tune the
paste with clove bud, geranium, lavender, whatever ... and stir in
more lemon juice vigorously if there's any granluation. Then I carrot
bag the henna and use it any time after that up to 48 hours later.
I'm using something like 2 drops of terps per dry gram of paste. I
mixed up 100 g per day, and rarely had any leftover.
I never wrapped, sealed, sugared or anythinged. I just put it on, let
it dry, let it fall off. It was hot humid summer weather, and the
large body applications often took an hour to dry. When the paste
fell off, the stain was already brilliant orange.
