Yes, the citrus oils feel like napalm set alight on my skin. That was
NOT a relaxing aromatic bath. 2 drops ... pure hell. (fragrant hell...)

I think I'm sensitive to many of the cheap terps used in Indian
"mehndi" oils, as I get blisters anywhere they touch.

On terps ... Tea Tree oil knocks the henna stain the best in my
experience ... then cajeput, cardamon, lavendar, geranium, and a
handfull of others.
