Henna/Mehndi is the art of temporary tattooing based on the dye prepared from the Henna plant. Henna leaves have natural dying properties - leaves are dried and crushed to make a natural powder. The dry powder is mixed with water, lemon juice, or strong tea, and other ingredients depending on the tradition.
The benefits of applying henna are it cools, conditions, cleanse and colors the skin. It is also known as a traditional Ayurveda medicine. It has the history of being used as a medicine for generations in Africa, India and other countries.
It is all natural, safe, temporary and painless way to decorate your personality, spirit and body with henna art symbols. This art exists for more than 5000 years in various cultures.
Women apply variations of henna or mehndi design patterns on their hands, feet, shoulders, back of neck and many parts. The henna body decorations are applied for fashion and beauty, for personal expression, for social and religious occasions, for healing purposes and more. In recent years global travel and migration, along with increased communication and cultural sharing has brought henna to many parts of the world.
Henna in Indian tradition is typically applied during special occasions, festivals and weddings.
