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
Eucaliptis oil. Then add your saucepan mix using only enough to make
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.
