Hi Sharon,

You will no want to dilute the usual terps being used my most
people...cajeput, tea tree oil, ravensara, eucalyptus (globius) and
lavender essential oils. I use 15 to 20 drops of the terps per 2
heaping tablespoons of henna powder.

As Nick has said, if you are using some of the essential oils that
are not as safe as the terps listed above, I would suggest as he does
using a lesser amount rather than dilution with carrier oils. The
other ingredients in your henna powder will break up the strength
enough to make it safe without having the problem of having too much
oil in your paste that can cause bleeding and feathering out in the
lines of the skin.
