Jamila Henna is a pesticide-free, triple sifted, Body Art Quality Henna that makes a beautiful smooth and creamy paste. No clogging, no grit, no fillers or chemical dyes. Just perfectly sifted, perfectly fresh henna! If you've been stopped in your tracks by little bits of fiber and leaf this triple sifted body art henna will make you a happy camper!

2018 Harvest is a lovely creamy consistency with a great bounce (a good bit of stickiness and stringiness in this harvest). Jamila Henna Powder is harvested in June/July and we always stock the most recent harvests.

Double wrapped in foil packets, means it will store perfectly for many years so you can stock up and hoard this gorgeous powder.

THINGS TO KNOW

  • Use 1 ounce essential oils per 100 gram packet for best results (we need oils high in monoterpene alcohol 'terps' ie. cajeput, tea tree, lavender, naiouli or our house 'terp' blends)
  • Follow the simple Henna Caravan 'Kiss' recipe for best results with this beautiful powder
  • Begin mixing 24 hours in advance

For a large batch that yields 15 ounces henna paste, you'll need:

  • 100 grams of Jamila Henna Powder
  • 1 cup Lemon juice (plus extra for thinning, if needed)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 ounce Essential Oil 

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!

ABOUT HENNA:

  • Henna is Perishable!
  • Store henna paste in the freezer when it arrives
  • Store henna powder in a cool DRY location when it arrives
  • Natural henna will start off orange and deepen color over 48 hours
  • Be sure to clean the skin before applying henna
  • Let the henna paste soak on the skin for 4-8 hours
  • Seal with medical tape or Aftercare Citrus Sealant for best results
  • To remove paste, gently flake off, if sticky use coconut or vegetable oil, not water to remove residue
  • Enjoy your custom one of a kind henna design! It will slowly fade away as your skin exfoliates
  • Henna stains last 7-10 days, longest on hands and feet where skin is thickest. Shortest on face, torso, back where the skin is thinner and more oily.
