Henna is a safe, natural dye derived from the crushed leaves of the henna plant, a flowering shrub which grows in hot arid regions like North Africa and the Middle East. Traditionally it was used to paint elaborate and auspicious designs on the hands and feet of brides to bless the marriage and nurture fertility.
Modern times have brought this 9000-year-old art form to many cultures across the globe. Now men and women alike adorn themselves with henna art. Just as you choose jewelry to wear, you choose the temporary designs of henna to express yourself.
Unlike ink tattooing, henna application does not pierce the skin. A paste is applied to the skin in a hand-drawn design, staining the first few layers of the skin a rich burgundy color that lasts one to two weeks. The design will gradually disappear as you naturally exfoliate.
The process of receiving henna is relaxing, both for the recipient and the onlookers. Many people report a deep sense of ease while having henna applied.
