The Herbal Touch Earth Jagua Black Body Painting Kit is the hottest new body painting kit to hit the market! Earth Jagua is the simple, safe, and all-natural solution to creating hip, realistic BLACK tattoos that are temporary, without dangerous chemicals or needles!
"Jagua" (scientific name genipa americana) is an edible, orange-size, tropical fruit with a thick rind found in the Amazon. The natural dye is extracted from the unripe fruit and used for many purposes by indigenous people throughout Central and South America, especially for body adornment. Its medicinal properties are well documented, chief among them the ability to repel insects and, when taken internally, to treat bronchitis.
