using henna to relieve your Hand Foot Syndrome!
HOW TO USE HENNA TO TREAT HFS/PPE
1/4 cup water
1/8 cup henna powder
A squirt of lemon juice
Bring the water to a boil, then turn off the heat. Add the henna slowly
and stir until it is like cream of tomato soup. You will probably use
about 1/8th of a cup. Add a squirt of lemon juice. Let it cool. (If you
already have cracks, skip the lemon juice. It will sting.)
Cover a work area with plastic bags or an old towel (henna stains).
Paint a thin layer on your bare feet and hands. I use a foam paint brush
to apply it.
LET IT DRY
It takes up to 15 minutes to dry. You can rinse it off. Instead, I put
socks on and leave it for my next shower.
WHERE TO BUY IT
I recommend this type of henna: “Jamali, most recent harvest.” You
might find that at an Indian grocery store. Most people buy online or by
phone. Here are two excellent sources.
