That is correct. I was just responding to your post about the
Lavendar, Rosemary and Geranium by comparing the smells with the
essential oils that are used as terps. Meaning, it is sometimes the
smell of the terp in the paste that some people don't like and are
trying to mask with the use of other essential oils purely for the
smell. Working with the terped paste smell is something they would
rather avoid by changing the smell with one essential oil or
fragrance oil while continuing to use what ever essential oil they
are using to terp their paste. While I would certainly prefer the
smell of cajeput, ravensara or terpineol in my paste over the smell
of Lavendar or Rosemary anyday.

And I was not completely sure if you meant to substitute the
Lavendar, Rosemary or Geranium for the cajeput, ravensara or

On the other hand, it is sometimes the smell of the henna paste
terped or not terped that lingers on the hand that some people do not
like. The suggestion to put a drop of smell good essential oil on
the stain at paste removal is not to effect the stain, but rather to
radically alter the smell.

Take care.
