Henna has been used for hundreds of years and is a natural plant dye. When applied to the skin, the henna produces a temporary stain - it is similar to a tattoo, but not permanent. Henna is completely natural, perfectly safe and painless.
Henna plant: Lawsonia InermisHenna is from the plant Lawsonia Inermis which grows in hot climates and can be found in most Middle Eastern countries such as Iran, Pakistan, Syria, Egypt and India. The plant grows to around 10 feet and the leaves are harvested twice a year as soon as the flowers appear. The leaves of the plant are dried, crushed and ground into a powder. The powder is mixed with a mildly acidic liquid, such as lemon juice, which releases the dye and forms a brown-coloured paste. The paste can then be applied to the body, wood, fabric or untreated leather to leave a stain.
On the body, the brown-coloured paste can be applied to skin, hair and nails. On skin, henna gives a temporary red-brown stain that grows out as dead skin cells are shed.
Mehndi is the Hindi word used to describe the art of henna. Traditionally henna is applied on the hands and feet and is used for weddings and religious occasions such as Eid, Diwali and for the blessing on the birth of a child or to bring good fortune into one’s home. Today henna is also used to temporarily decorate your body, as a form of self expression and body art.
