Dark reddish brown. Variations in color depend on your body temperature and skin type.
Q. Can you add anything to the henna to make it darker?
We hear about all kinds of homemade recipes, but nothing we can vouch for.
Q. What about black henna?
Black henna does not exist. Black henna contains industrial dyes, like PPD, inks, or chemicals—all of them potentially harmful to the skin. We strongly recommend you stay away from so-called black henna mixtures.
Q. What's the eucalyptus oil for?
The eucalyptus oil is for transferring stencils to skin. We also recommend swabbing the skin with eucalyptus oil before applying henna paste.
