**Suggested mixing instructions for Hengua using Fresh Jagua powder

**Suggested mixing instructions for Hengua using Jagua powder:



Jagua Powder

1½ tbsps.

Henna Powder

1½ tbsps.


8 tbsps.

Lavender essential oil or Cajeput oil

½ tbsp.


½ tbsp. (*optional)


*Only needed in dry heat climate. Do not add if you live in a very humid area.

  1. First, add both powders to a glass mixing bowl.
  2. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, stirring between each tablespoon of water. You may use less than 8 tbsps. of water if your preferred consistency requires less. Just note that if you add more than 8 tbsps., your paste will take longer than 30 minutes to dry.
  3. Add your essential oil - Make sure you use top quality essential oil.
  4. If you live in a dry heat climate, adding ½ tbsp-3/4tbsp of sugar may be needed.
  5. Once all ingredients are in the bowl, mix vigorously, then let it sit 12-24 hours (Depending on how long it typically takes for your henna dye to be released. When combing Henna and Jagua, there is no accurate spot test like there is when you make your Henna paste. So, it is helpful to know how long it normally takes for your henna to release its dye). After 12-24 hours, stir once more to make sure all lumps are gone. Strain your paste through stalking. Then put the paste in cone or bottle and apply. Store unused paste in a freezer until next usage. This recipe yields approximately 4 oz. / 115g of paste.

Note you can also make Hengua by mixing equal parts of already made Jagua paste and already dye released Henna paste.
