Henna and Jagua Gel artist
The art of mehndi (or mehandi) is an ancient tradition, originating from many ancient cultures, beginning about 5,000 years ago. Even in ancient Egypt, noble ladies decorated their body and nails with a picture. Today, this art is most common in India, used in religious and ritual ceremonies, but also received recognition in other countries as a beautiful art for all times.
So what is Mehendi?
Henna powder is obtained from a plant (in fact, a shrub) Lawsonia inermis, usually grown in the Middle East from which henna powder is made. Henna itself is also used for hair care, a rash treatment, at high temperatures, or as a skin conditioner. Henna paste is also used to apply patterns to the body.
Henna powder itself is green, but the color it leaves behind is usually orange-red. There are many producers of henna, and they offer it in a rich variety of colors. But we do not recommend using colored henna. Pure henna will not cause any allergic reaction. When dyes are added to henna, an allergic reaction can be mild to severe.
Black henna especially can leave serious skin burns due to chemicals added to it to get black.
Most of those who are already familiar with henna drawings have seen traditional designs. These are beautifully intricate drawings used for wedding ceremonies and other rituals. They usually decorate the hands and feet of the wearer and require many hours of applying the paste, and then drying it. The color of henna is known to adhere best to the hands and feet, which absorb and hold the color better, but henna can be applied anywhere. How well your skin will take henna will depend on the properties of each person’s skin.
