Henna takes into the world of mysterious and great traditions.

 

In the Indian Subcontinent the word 'mehndi' is used, whereas in the Arab and Western world 'henna' is the widely known expression for this type of art.

The tradition of henna body art goes beyond borders, and, although at different levels, can be found in the Bible, in the Jewish ceremonies and Muslim traditions as well.

Henna has been used to adorn young women's bodies as part of social and holiday celebrations since the late Bronze Age in the eastern Mediterranean. The earliest text mentions henna in the context of marriage and fertility celebrations.

According to the oldest traditions henna was only applied on the palm, however, with their gaining popularity, henna patterns nowadays are painted anywhere on the body.

About
Henna
  • The oil needs to be removed from the skin we are about the paint, for henna doesn't stick to oily skin

  • The henna paste is applied from its tube

  • Freshly applied paste requires great caution, for it takes about 30-45 minutes for the henna not to smudge any longer

  • After it's properly dried, the paste starts to crack and fall off

  • At this state the crumbles of the paste can be rubbed off the skin

 

NOTE: the pattern first is always yellow on the skin, and with the passing of time it turns dark.

IMPORTANT: the painted are should not get in touch with water for at least 6 hours

If these guidelines are followed, the pattern will be visible for 8-12 days


We do not use black henna!

We create individual pricing in each case.
