When using henna paste on small children or women during pregnancy it is recommended to use Lavender Essential Oil. Lavender is one of the mildest essential oils and is safest to use on those with sensitivities. Essential oils are concentrated and should be used in small quantities and diluted in the henna paste. Do not apply directly to the skin.

essential oil for dark henna

 

Use aromatherapy grade essential oils or 'terps' in every batch of henna paste you make to achieve dark color. Essential oils are the secret to rich and dark henna stains on even the hardest to stain body parts like backs and bellies. Get great henna stains every time! Tired of dull orange stains? Add essential oils and you'll be amazed at what happens! They can breathe life back into even dull, old powders.

Henna Caravan natural Essential Oil "terps" are premeasured to be added to our 20 gram henna packets and 100 gram henna boxes perfectly. Just pour the premeasued amount of oil into the henna, add some lemon juice and let it work for you, no measuring or guessing required. Our essential oils are chosen for their ability to safely darken your henna for the best results!

Henna Caravan uses only the highest quality, pure, 100% natural essential oils. We have chosen our variety of essential oil terps based on their chemical make up and ability to combine with henna paste for optimal results safely. There are many types and grades of essential oils and only a few contain the proper chemical components and can be added safely and without irritation to your henna powder

All the essential oils we carry are certified pesticide free and are wild crafted or organic. Store essential oils in the refrigerator, the are fragile and may degrade with light and heat.

Why are our prices so low? Are these high grade, pure essential oils? If you have shopped around the drug store or online essential oil companies you may have noticed that our prices are very low, sometimes only one third what others charge! We purchase only a few types of 100% pure, high grade essential oils in very large quantities direct from the manufacturer. This allows us to provide 100% pure high grade essential oils at a very reasonable cost. We would like our customers to be able to experiment with a variety of high grade essential oils at an affordable rate.
