You can't use just any essential oils to improve your henna stains.  There are only a few which will improve your henna stain, and of  that group, only a few will improve staine without causing skin irritation. We have combined pleasantly fragrant mixes of the terps highest in monoterpene alcohols to give you the best possible stains.

These "Terps" are based on the Serious Mixes, the original group of aromatherapy grade essential oils found to darken henna stains dramatically, with the lowest incidence of skin irritation, and with the most enjoyable fragrance.  We've reformulated our terps because climate change and political instability have affected the production of some aromatic crops. You might not have heard of these essential oils before, but we did the chemistry studies, and these are BETTER than what we had before, with very high levels of all the right stuff ... and they smell wonderful.  We think you'll love them!

These "Terps" are blended of pure aromatherapy grade essential oils and are kept refrigerated until they are shipped to you.  Please refrigerate them as soon as you receive them to preserve the volatile monoterpene alcohols.  If you order when the weather is over 90F or 32C, the quality may deteriorate during transit.

All of these terps are in 10 ml bottles.  In my own work, I use one 10 ml bottle per 100g of henna powder.  My new personal favorite is Ho Leaf, Cedarwood & Coriander Terp!  

Use terps sensibly.  Every person is allergic to something.  There is nothing that is absolutely safe for everyone.  Mehandi.com terps are made from essential oils generally considered to be safe for limited use on skin at the level we recommend, 10 ml per 100g of henna powder. We have chosen the safest and most pure essential oils that we can find, but you will have to use your own best judgement about what and how much to use.
