: Oh I'm pretty sure it was Indigo. The group that I purchase from
: pretty careful about listing all ingredients.... Which actually

: Black apparently is pure indigo according to their info, though I'm
: probably going to ask for some more background on it....

: leaked out of the bag into the containing bag and when I looked
: my fingers were stained that funky blue-violet you get when you

: off after about three washings but it was something of a startle
: 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
: 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
: and such in it, was poking at it last night through a filter, but
: just doesn't quite seem or smell like henna though it does have a
: rather distinctive smell.
