Hi Nat,

Actually, I didn't find the blend with the grapeseed oil to be at all
invasive to the paste in the small quantity I put in. It ceratinly
was nowhere near as invasive as I had found mustard oil to be when
playing with it a bit ago. And if you mix olive oil in your paste
without problems...and the mustard oil doesn't impair the staining
capacity of the paste...then obviously henna dyes are to some degree
tolerant of an not impacted by a certain level of oils in a paste.
Biggest problem I saw with the mustard oil had nothing to do with
hampering the stain. Problem was with the bleeding and feathering
thing cause when I used waaaay too much of the mustard oil in one
batch. A little bit of mustard oil certainly goes a long way.

Take care.
