In reply to: Re: Terpineol is better? posted by Catherine Cartwright Jones on August 27, 2002 at 11:43:31:

: A little background from when I went to do the Serious Mix tests.
I'd
: gotten a package of terpineol from Jani henna, from the excellent
: Muhammad Karwadia (who has one of the top 3 cleanest hennaes!). It
: gave me amazing results but I didn't know where to get high quality
: terpineol. Aromatherapy grade EO's had some high levels of
terpineols
: and were easier to find, so that's one of the reasons I went with
: them. No big suprise that Tea Tree with its high and well regulated
: levels of terpineol was a winner.
:
: Another reason I went with the aromatherapy grade oils is:
: one person who used to post on the forum was pushing a "treat'em and
: street'em pre-made paste" and kept claiming that the paste was "all
: natural" and was good because it was made with a process that
: "respected the life force". Balderdash, I thought, chemistry is
: chemistry and I'm going to figure this damn thing out. This person
got
: quite nasty with me insisting that I was pushing poison with all
these
: long-scary-name-chemicals in the henna .... so I decided to work
only
: with aromatherapy grade EO's just to sidestep the accusations. Same
: chemistry, but from a "purity and celestial light" resource. It all
: got to the same place: terped henna.
:
: I'm glad I went through the EO route, because I think I learned far
: more about the characteristics of the different monoterpene alcohols
: and that benefitted henna and henna artists more. They smell so
: fantastic anyway!
:
: Anyway .. that's why I didn't go straight for terpineol ... people
: kept confusing it with terpentine, and I didn't know of a good,
safe,
: easily accessible source .
:
: Last word? Don't annoy an Aries woman with balderdash about "
: respecting life force" when it's basic chemistry in operation. I
: tested the henna powder from that "perfectly pure and natural
source"
: ... it's got green dye in it. (or was that distilled essence of
third
: chakra?)
