Recipe

The best recipe for Henna I have seen yet.
In saucepan boil the following:
2 tea bags (black tea)
2 tsp. coffee
1 tsp. ground clove
10-15 whole cloves
3/4 pint of water
2 tsp. Tamarind paste


After you let this boil for a few minutes let simmer for an hour. 


After that pour through strainer. Let sit a few minutes to cool down.

Place your fresh sifted Henna in small bowl and add a few drops of Eucalyptus oil. Then add your saucepan mix using only enough to take the paste as thick as chocolate sauce, others say as thick as toothpaste 
but I like mine thinner. Stir very well and let stand overnight. 



In the morning it will be ready to use.


I have found this recipe to make the darkest stain yet.


Another more simple recipe is:

Sifting some fresh Henna in a bowl and adding lemon juice until the Henna
is a bit clumpy. Let that sit overnight. The next day add a few drops of Eucaliptis oil and
fresh coffee or tea until its to the right consistancy.
