Since you mentioned jasmine oil, Maureen, I had to share this:
jasmine essential oil does *wonderfully* luscious things to hair,
particularly dry hair. My oft-frizz, and oft-dry locks find divine
comfort from a drop (maybe two-three, when I'm halfway down the back
in length, but too much ain't better than just right!) into wet hands
rubbed and worked in and it smells like... well, just like jasmine
blossoms in your hair and and for me, the frizzes and drys suddenly
disappear and my hair is calm, cool and collected! I like to add a
couple of drops of cananga to get a slightly more heady scent (I also
add cananga to my henna mix for a heady, sensuous southern garden
blend.) Just had to share this though, since reading this
inspired/reminded me to do this to my hair this morning and ahhhhh it
still smells wonderful!

: Hi Angi,
: Actually for the smell, I think both the tea tree and any euc oil
: could benefit from a little help from other eos. So I would not
: any euc oil to help with the smell of tea tree. There is more and
: better help in that area from other eos...those that Catherine
: suggested and others. My preference is rose...then jasmine.
: In terms of using a euc as a terp. The only one I found that
: is eucalyptus (globius). Both Lauren and I sell the eucalyptus
: globius. The terps I sell on my website are cajeput and the
: eucalyptus globius. I don't know how much of either the tea tree
: eucalyptus globius you use in your recipe, but you will want to be
: careful with the amount. I find that too much of the terps
: definately shortens the life of the stain and appears to cause a
: strange break up in the stain that is not there when a more
: appropriate amount is used. I only use 15 to 20 drops of any terp
: 2 heaping tablespoons of henna powder. That is sufficient and
: creates excellent stains. There is no benefit in using more of the
: terps than is necessary to get the desired stain. There is a
: benefit in using only what is required...it saves you money and
: allows your bottle of your choice terp to last longer. I use
: almost exclusively in my pastes. But will sometimes use the
: eucalyptus globius when I am testing henna powders both with an
: without terps. The cajeput has been the best across the board for
: in terms of stains and having an aroma that I like when mixed in
: paste. The eucalyptus globius I can tolerate. The tea tree oil
: makes my eyes water and therefore is far down my list of terps that
: would choose. Other people have very different preferences in
: of the aroma and tolerance for the terps.
: Outside of what each terp can do for your henna powder, however, it
: becomes personal choice. But know that euc oils are very different
: and not interchangeable as a terp.
: Take care.
: Maureen
