For 1cone which can cover 2hands fully, mix in stainless steel vessel 1heaping tsp mehendi pow(see its not sitting on shelf for long time as looses power & shd be bright green with grassy, earthy aroma), 1/2t sugar, 1/2t tam.paste, as muxh l.juice to form paste. Let sit o.night airtight without air bubbles. Mix in 1/2t ess oil(eucalyptus & tea tree). Keep covered 5hrs. U’ll know that dye has released when top part of henna is brown & brown liquid is seeping out of the paste. Trick is mix in 3:2 proportion of liquid to pow. When mehendi is let fall from spoon, if falls goopily, then is at right consistency but if falls in strings will allow u to create fine links.

For dabbing on damp paste to keep it moist & help secure it to skin, mix 2Tsugar in 2Tl.juice well, use.

For best rslts, sleep with it o.night, scrape it off, leave it untouched by h20 for 10hrs. The deep color lasts 2wks. After use, store mehendi pow airtight in cool, dry place where not exposed to light at all.
