Henna or Mehendi is a traditional form of dyeing/tattooing that is natural and has been done for many years within South Central Asia, Western Asia, some South East Asian Countries, Arabian peninsula/Middle East, and Africa. Henna is derived from the henna plant. The henna plant leaves are then dried up and turned into a powder. The powder is then turned into a paste which is then used to create henna. In order to create the paste, the dried henna leaves powder is mixed with water, sugar, and lemon juice are mixed together. Our henna artist utilizes the henna powders that come all the way from India and Pakistan from the finest sources. Sometimes tea water or essential oils are added. The reason these other ingredients are added is to bring out the colors of the henna. In addition to that, a henna artist might use a mixture of sugar lemon water as a sealant to help bring out the colors. It is recommended that when applying henna for the first time that you let your henna artist know if you feel any itchiness or irritation from the henna.
