I thought the original question was regarding how fragrance oils
would work in henna to help with the smell. Sorry!

I don't think essential oils help the *stain* much when they are
rubbed in after paste removal because there just isn't time for the
chemicals to react. It's like using paste where the oils have just
been mixed in, or the acidic compound has been mixed- it seemingly
has no effect, but in reality, it's just begun its reaction. I guess
for those that don't like the smell of henna, they should just try to
deal with it if they want the stain, cause it sticks around long
after the paste is gone!
