I was just sent a bottle of a "henna fixative" made up mostly of
citronella oil. It says in the instructions that it should be rubbed
into the skin before and after the paste is applied. It says nothing
about putting it in the paste.
So my questions are: Isn't citronella phototoxic? Does it have a
reasonable terp content? It smells like it. If it's not toxic, or
even if it is, would there be any benefit to rubbing it in before or
after?
