| Henna Paste Recipe
*sifted henna powder
*2 packets of instant coffee singles (the ones that look like tea bags)
*1 and 1/2 cups of water
*2 tablespoons lemon juice; fresh is best.
1.Sift out enough henna to make about 1-1 and 1/4 cups dry, sifted henna powder.
2.Take 2 packets of instant coffee singles (the ones that look like tea bags) and boil hard in about 1 and 1/2 cups of water until it boils down to about 3/4 of a cup of dark liquid.
3.Mix just enough coffee into the powder to create a thick paste. The hot liquid will make the powder ball up a little, so be sure to mix it until it is well blended and smooth. Add about 2 tablespoons lemon juice; fresh is best.
4.Add about 5 drops of Eucalyptus Oil.
5.Add about 5 drops of Eucalyptus Oil.
6.This should make a thin paste, but you don't want it runny. If it is too runny, add a little more sifted henna powder. If its too thick, add a little more coffee, or plain water.
Allow to settle and cool for about 2 hours
