Henna Recipe Fact:

Why so many recipes? Fresh henna is best Henna. Henna Hut? is ready to do a tattoo in 15 minutes with just water.
Shelly oil ( which we sell cheap) when mixed in with our pure henna makes an absolute incredible henna tattoo.

We have mixed henna well over 1,000 ways and simply put, Shelly oil is the best for tattoos hands down.
This is mixed with our fresh henna. Anyone that has said to mix, coffee, tea or any other caffeine products has no clue to what they are talking about. tea and coffee will dilute the henna and keep it from working as well.

Henna Hut? Henna is so fresh you can do henna tattoos with just plain tap water in less than an hour!

Even more powerful add our Shelly oil!

The darker the henna powder does not mean the darker the stain. Fact is the best staining henna’s are a brownish yellow color. If your henna power is extremely green, odds are it has been tampered with. Never assume greener is better!

Keep mixing till all the lumps are gone. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and sit in a warm spot overnight. The Next Morning morning, add the geranium and cajeput oils and stir until you have the consistency of toothpaste. Let this mixture sit for the day. Stir again – if the mixture seems too thick add a little warm water until you have the consistency you want.

Add Essential oils and mix.12 hours later your Henna is ready. Add Sugar to help it dry slower! Most people say it helps it stick on the skin. Any wet Henna will stick , Sugar helps slow the drying time, which in return helps for a darker stain. “Hint”- Use honey for a sugar substitute.
