The last design I did on my palm was with henna mixed with cajeput,
frankincense and clove. I got a good dark mahogany stain. I
wouldn't say it was splotchy when it faded but the finer parts of the
design faded quicker than the heavier parts. There was a distinct
green tinge in some areas. It has now been 3 weeks since I applied
that design and while nothing remains on the fingers, I can still see
the pattern on my palm. It is now a consistent pale terracotta color
with no hint of green.

: I used cajeput and geranium oil in my last mix of Jamilla henna.
: stain came out almost black with a nice red tone to it. It has
: stubbornly faded but not in the way that I've experienced it in the
: past.
: It's fading splotched and while some of it is still the original
: color some patches of the stain are turning dark green grey! It
: almost looks like the skin has been burned to a black with a match
: something. I didn't have any problems/itching/burning feeling with
: the paste at all. It's a little disturbing and I'm wondering if
: has happened to anyone else?
