Hi Faery Ring,

I knew what maxx meant by "mudd-slingers." Maybe because her
business name is IZMUDD Arts. And also because I just don't see maxx
as a person to hurl about the insults in that way.

In terms of my defense of Kimia. When something not true about it
went on a current list, I did what was necessary to put the correct
information out. I would do that about any of my products...any
thing I put a lot of time into.

I do think that it is strange that Kimia is considered expensive.
Kimia is $10 per 100 grams. That is consistent with other henna
powders. I also have Teachers Discounts, Brides Discounts and Henna
Artists Discounts that provide people in these categories with Kimia
for $40.00 and $45 per kilo. There are so many assumptions about
Kimia.

The price of henna powder that suppliers can sell their henna powder
for is often in large part dependent upon the price they pay for
shipping. Jamila can be obtained from Canada. There is more often
than not a far higher markup on Jamila than most henna powders.

I am perfectly happy that people are happy with their henna powders
and where they obtain them. I have many many people very happy with
my henna powders and obtaining them from me. But a fair assessment
of my prices would be appreciated. Especially since they are in line
with and sometimes lower than the prices of henna powder sold by
other online suppliers.

Who knows how the small stores obtain their henna powder and can sell
it at such a low cost? One thing I know...they don't pay what we pay
for shipping.

Maureen
