Hi Maya, and welcome to the best henna site and forum ever. You'll
find your self in great company with lots of people who use natural
means for not only art, but health. Your also in the company of some
darn good herbalist too (something about natural body art;)

I've played with herbal plant dyes too - especially for hair and as I
started working with henna. I never found anything to change the
overall hue of henna for skin. Before I was useing terpine containg e
oils the only botanical I was using for colour was dried lemons or
limes. It's not in the herbal texts but it sure is in the henna
texts. Otherwise that just stick to using decotions in my hair henna -
everything from amaranth leaves, hibcus, elderberries, and dalmation
sage - if they don't do anything to the colour they at least make a
pretty tea!!!

Henna stained and green blessings - Lelia
