EcoCert Organic Certified Henna Powder, Grade B henna powder
We have discovered that the current crop of Maharani henna powder does not match the quality of the samples we tested when ordering.
It is a lovely powder with a great consistency but does not reach our extremely high standards for body art quality for our clients. It does not stain quite as rich and dark as we like.
It IS suitable for body art use, just keep in mind that it’s dye content is a bit lower than what we usually look for and therefore the stain is not ultra dark. For example, I wouldn’t use it on a bride.
It is an excellent powder for practicing on yourself, friends and family, for crafts and of course for hair coloring.
At this time we suggest using Jamila for those ultra dark stains!
Maharani will be re-stocked once the new batch meets our high level of expectations. We expect to have a fresh batch in the end of October.
THINGS TO KNOW:
This product is intended for use in experimental body art. Henna body art should be avoided on those under six years of age, those with extreme anemia, G6PD deficiency, naphthoquinone sensitivity, have been advised to avoid fava beans, or have citrus allergies. If you have any concerns consult your physician. This kit contains small objects that may pose a choking hazard.
If pregnant use only lavender essential oils in the henna paste and consult your physician first. Do not ingest. All products can, on rare occasions, cause allergic reaction. The product should not be applied in or near the eyes, nose, genitalia, on open wounds or cuts, or to sensitive or broken skin. If you are unsure about sensitivity, a patch test is advised. Apply the product to the inside of the elbow. If a reaction occurs within 60 minutes, do not use. Not for internal use.
Avoid “BLACK HENNA” or “Emergency Henna Cone” products that may use chemical additives or hair dyes that contain PPD (paraphenylenediamine) to obtain a black stain. PPD can cause long-term damage to internal organs such as kidneys and liver, can blister and permanently scar the skin. Chemical dyes stain the skin within 30 minutes and are dark immediately. Black henna products are not safe or natural and should never be applied to the skin.

Begin mixing 24 hours in advance.
For a large batch that yields 15 ounces henna paste, you'll need:
Fill your applicator using a convenient storage bag and create gorgeous, unique henna designs on your friends and family!
Store leftover paste in the freezer for optimal freshness, up to 6-12 months. Every time you defrost and refreeze it'll lose some potency and stain power, so we recommend dividing into single serving sizes for storage.
Not ready to mix 100 grams at once? Try a smaller batch that yields 3 ounces.
You can make 5 small 3 ounce batches out of a 100 gram henna packet!
In a small bowl combine:
Cover and let sit in a warm location, 75-80 degrees, F for 24 hours.
Once your henna is ready, give it a stir and check consistency. Add a few drops of lemon juice at a time until you reach your perfect paste.
