Made with USDA Organic Tea Tree and Lavender Essential Oil
Desert Caravan is Henna Caravan's signature USDA Organic Tea Tree essential oil blend, crafted to produce excellent henna stains reliably and to be a pleasant scent for professionals. To achieve the darkest, most reliable henna stains, use quality essential oils high in mono-terpene alcohols, or ‘terps’. Essential oils are the secret to rich, dark stains even on the hardest to stain parts of the body like backs and bellies.
If you haven't used a premium terp before, you will amazed at what happens with your henna paste. Henna Caravan uses only the highest quality of pure, 100% natural essential oils. We have chosen our variety of essential oil ‘terps’ carefully based on their chemical makeup and ability to produce optimal results safely and without irritation. As with all essential oils, never use undiluted, in eyes or on mucus membranes.
Tea Tree is a favorite ‘terp’ among professionals.
