: How do you know? Do you have a gas chrom reading that gives you this
: info? Do you get one for each batch?

This is a *for real* question! When I've spoken to knowlegeable
aromatherapists, they've all said that the levels of monoterpene
alcohols are wildly variable according to harvest and batches, and can
dissapate with contact with heat or light!

Its for durn sure that "100% pure henna" on a label means absolutely
jack to many exporters......... with something as inherently variable
as levels of terpenes in plants, and then possible evaporation in a
bottle ... I'd want some assurance that there was agreement with label
and actual contents (and not just someone saying "oh women shouldn't
worry about such things).
