: One is indigo. One is henna. If you add water to each you'll see
: difference in 20 minutes. The henna will develop a brownish glaze
: the indigo will develop a blueish glaze. Black and red henna were
: marketing names that evolved about 150 years ago. For more info see
: the link below:
Just mixed a spoonful of the darker of the two powders (the one I
thought might be indigo) with a bit of water and oil and it looks
almost exactly like the picture of the indigo in the link you gave me
(no blue yet, but the same dark green colour without the appearance
of crystals). Thanks for the link.
