Question about Purity and terps

Does the Purity take as long to release dye?  I usually use the KISS method for mixing my henna.  Just don't want to leave it sitting too long!!  Can't wait to play with it!!

What is the best way to store my terp?

 

Thanks in advance!

store your oils in dark bottles in the fridge or other dark cool place.

I have been keeping them in a cupboard in the kitchen.  We keep the house temp @ 73degrees year round.....that cool enough??  Or would refridgeration be better?

Re: Question about Purity and terps

Under 60F is better for terps.  These are fragile molecules, and they vent off when they warm up.

Its my impression that Purity has a fast dye release (24 hours from opening the package to on the skin.)

According to test results from an independent certified laboratory, every shipment from Abid and Co. has a VERY different of characteristics, dye content, etc.  I thought there'd be some difference, because its an agricultural product ... I didn't know HOW different they'd be! What works for Purity isn't going to work for other products from Abid and Co.  And ... "Celebration" is absolutely totally different!

Should work, but watch the timing.

At 80 degrees your Purity will be ready before the 24 hours is up.  Really watch it.

at 73 degrees, it's going to release in way less than 24 hours.  My last batch was ready in 12 hours.

Thank you!!

Must be what was wrong with my first batch!  "Cooked" too long.  Making up a new batch tonight and check it in the morning instead of waiting for the evening.
