Jagua-Henna (aka Hengua) is fresh paste made from henna powder, lavender essential oils, sugar and Jagua Fruit Juice.
The stain color will be a range from indigo blue, grey blue, maroon, burgundy, chocolate, raw umber (cool brown hues) then back to indigo blue. Depending on how long the henna has dye released will determine the exact shade and that will vary with each passing day! It's a like a rainbow in your cone and will be a different shade every day!!
On the first day it stains indigo blue and as the days roll on it shifts to burgundy and deep cool browns then back to indigo blue as the henna releases and the two dyes mix and blend together.
We are proud to exclusively offer Jagua products from FreshJagua, the premier Jagua supplier.

Warnings and Safety Information as per manufacturer FreshJagua®
IS JAGUA REALLY SAFE?
*Jagua is very new to the western world and we all still learning Jagua! Although Jagua is a natural food product and has been used for thousands of years on kids, woman and man as part of their daily routine and not only for nutritional purposes and skin dye, but for herbal healing as well. It is possible to have an allergic reaction to any foreign substance applied to the skin. We encourage People with sensitive skin, before applying a full sized Jagua Temporary Tattoo to test a small patch by applying a small dot of Jagua behind the ear to test your sensitivity to Jagua.
We have sold thousands of Jagua temporary tattoo products and provide it as a service at our shop and have only a few cases of allergic reactions each year. An allergic reaction to Jagua will appear as a dense rash of hard red bumps and may look similar to the allergic reations caused by PPD or Black Henna. Unlike PPD or Black Henna, an allergic reaction to Jagua will not create a lasting scar. This rash can be treated like any other allergic rash with the application of anti-itch cream and/or Cortizone. Before treating any allergic reaction, it is essential to consult your health care professional!
We speculate that there is a connection between high alcohol/drugs levels and how the body reacts to Jagua.
It is not wise to expose heat in any form to a fresh applied Jagua tattoo in the first 48 hour of the tattoo development or painful scarring will occur.
*Warning -The safety of this product has not been determined.
