Oh I'm pretty sure it was Indigo. The group that I purchase from is
pretty careful about listing all ingredients.... Which actually made
me more curious as they listed the different blends of henna they
were using to make the Blond Henna and Chestnut Henna and so forth...
Black apparently is pure indigo according to their info, though I'm
probably going to ask for some more background on it....
I didn't mix it with anything, the fine powder just happened to have
leaked out of the bag into the containing bag and when I looked down
my fingers were stained that funky blue-violet you get when you spill
water on black ink and get that blue/purple wash. The stuff washed
off after about three washings but it was something of a startle for
me to get in a sample of henna and look up and find my fingers
blue.... unfortunately on the coloring side it was pretty pale except
for the creases where the dust must have settled while I was
Let me know if you can make any sense of it. It does have some twigs
and such in it, was poking at it last night through a filter, but it
just doesn't quite seem or smell like henna though it does have a
rather distinctive smell.
