the Myrobalan thing
Posted by Catherine Cartwright Jones on October 12, 2002 at 18:31:34:
One passed from Maureen to a purchaser and from there to me.
Then, I recieved another package, unopened, from Navaid though a
second party to me. This person was told by Navaid that Sarah had
myrobalan, but that she should "not worry" because myrobalan is
"natural". She was furious because she'd ordered 100% pure henna and
got henna and myrobalan so she sent it to me and asked "what in the
hell is myrobalan?".
When I looked at the Sarah that went through your hands and the Sarah
that I got unopened, I saw the red/violet pieces that I've seen in NO
OTHER henna in BOTH SAMPLES ... and ... found out what myrobalan is
... and BINGO. It's a dye plant, and has lots of tannins and it's one
of many dye plants that adulterate Indian henna.
Yes, Myrobalan seems to be a natural thing, and gives a faboo stain ..
Question is .... why is Navaid knowingly handing over a product
labeled 100% pure henna that he KNOWS is NOT 100% pure, and why has he
told one retailer and not another? And now that you know .... will
you sell it as myrobalan/henna blend or ..........?
