Khadija’s Henna Body Art Recipe

Khadija’s Henna Body Art Recipe

Since 2005, I have been mixing henna for body art by hand and have tried many combinations of powders and ingredients. I love the process of tessting out new powders, formulations and playing in the henna “mud”. I now use a KitchenAid stand mixer to mix my henna and jagua body art recipes. I’ll be sharing with you in this blog my absolutely favorite henna recipe and steps I take to get a smooth, creamy and dark staining henna body art recipe for henna tattoos that will last 7-10 days. Essential ingredients: Fresh body art quality henna powder that is finely sifted (please read our article on the times needed for dye release). My current favorite body art quality henna powders are our Red Raj and Supreme Blend. Bottled lemon juice, warm water or tea brew. Personally I use 50/50 of distilled water and lemon juice. 100% pure essential oils, such as eucalyptus globulus, cajeput, or tea tree or lavender (also known as terps). My personal favorite is our Red Raj Bliss Blend EO. Sugar, preferably dextrose or fructose. I currently use fructose or raw sugar.
