Veronica's Recipe 

100 grams Rajasthani henna powder
3/4 Cup of organic sugar
1/4 cup of honey
1/2 oz of tea tree oil
1/2oz of Cajeput Oil
8 drops of Geranium oil
Lemon Juice appx 4 cups
1/5 cup of tap water

Pour henna into bowl. Add 1 cup of lemon juice and essential oils and stir. Slowly stir in lemon juice until the consistency is like creamy mashed potatoes. Start adding sugar until henna is slightly runny. Leave for 24 hours in warm place. Place in fridge for one to two days. Remove from fridge before use and stir in any separated liquid. Place in cheese muslin or cheap dollar store tights and squeeze, removing liquid until it doesn't flow easily when you squeeze. You can keep the liquid for use with making another batch or for body henna. Mix in water and honey. Your mix is ready.

Tips: For oily hair apply a day after shampooing to avoid having your scalp being stained darkly. Do not condition before you henna your hair, only shampoo to remove excess oils. Apply oil or lotion with oils around your scalp line, to your ears, and back of your neck to avoid staining those areas.

For simple conditioning leave on for twenty minutes. For staining start leaving it on longer. Your hair will dictate how long to leave it on for the color you want.
