Hi and welcome! We always love to see new henna enthusiasts.
You can get good quality Tea Tree at GNC, and every town has one of
those now. Your local new age shop or natural food store will have
most of the other oils you could want.
BUT you will pay mugh higher prices for stuff that may not be the
quality you need in you buy from those places. For example, the most
common oil found in stores is Aura Cacia brand, and back when we were
first experimenting with oils, several of the Aura Cacia products
were tried and found to be less effective than other brands. This
should NOT be read to say that this brand is bad, simply that the
qualities that they emphasize may not be the qualities you need for
ues in henna.
If you buy online from an artist, you get both proven quality henna-
active oils and excellent support and service, and for the most part
online sellers can beat the street prices. The people who I know
sell oils on this Forum are myself (link below), Kenzi, and Maureen.
