Improving the smell of henna paste..........
Posted by Jamie on September 1, 2002 at 00:12:36:Hey again. I was looking at the henna on my hand (the paste is now
removed) and it's a nice pumpkiny-color, which I hope will be a rich
brown (or darker) within in a day or so. Anyway, while I was looking
at it I couldn't help noticed that the smell of the paste is still
there, and it got me thinking.........
This morning when I was finishing up making my paste I simmered lemon
juice and cloves together for about forty-minutes total, (following a
slightly Morrocan recipe I saw somewhere), then strained it, and the
liquid retained the lovely clovey smell, but when I added it to my
paste you could no longer smell the cloves, just the henna. And
although the smell is not unbearable, it's not my favorite, that's
Anyhoo, what I was wondering is what are some of your favorite ways
to improve the smell of the actual paste? This would be helpful to me
in the future.
Thanks again, and I apologize if I'm asking too many questions,
