What's in the Henna Kit?
I have hand made each henna kit for the ease of learning, with simplicity and fun. I tried my best to keep it simple, while giving as much knowledge for success as possible.

You can also request more cones to come with your henna kit if you wish, $5 for each additional cone.
Once Your Henna Kit Arrives
If you pick up your henna kit directly from me, or if it is shipped to you, there are a few things to know! Number one is that you'll need to place your henna cone into the freezer until you are ready to use it. The practice cone is fine at room temp. There are detailed directions in the kit on how this works but I wasn't able to explain why it is necessary, so I will here. The basic answer is that henna is a natural plant product and will go bad over time, like any food. There are also natural essential oils in henna that will demise and go bad over time, making the henna usable, but you won't get a great stain from it. This is a great situation if you're still wanting to practice and don't mind a stain that lasts just 5 days instead of 14.
