Preparation of Henna

The best recipe for preparation of 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.

In the morning it will be ready to use. 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 Eucalyptus oil and fresh coffee or tea until its to the right consistency.
