Another reason why Coke is a suitable liquid for henna

Well apparently the recipe has been found! And you'd never guess what is in Coke, granted there may not be enough of the 'terps' to make a difference in our paste but I thought it interesting never the less.

 That is very interesting! Thanks for sharing that! 

A note or two for those who haven't used coke in their mix before:

Let it go flat first unless you're a big fan of science fair vulcanoes.

Coke has toooooooo much sugar if you live in a very humid climate.

Diet Coke works well for humid climates.  Also, a good trick for flattening soda in a hurry is to microwave it for a few minutes.  Put it in the fridge for about half an hour to cool before use.

I wonder how it would be for a sealant hmmm yes bees etc might be an issue but probably not anymore then using lemon juice/sugar.
