The Henna plant (Lawsonia inermis) grows in hot climates and can be found in most Middle Eastern countries. The leaves from this bush are dried and crushed to make henna powder which produces a red dye.
This is made into a paste and applied to the skin. It has been used for 5000 years as a cosmetic and for body art and for its supposed natural healing properties. The henna bush is associated with luck and prosperity.
Henna tattoos are fun, painless and temporary, lasting 1-3 weeks depending on where the design is on the body and how long the paste was left to set. Henna designs are used in different cultures for celebrations and holidays. As with any cosmetic product, if you are unsure about sensitivity or allergic reactions to natural henna, any essential oils used in the paste mix, any body paint used for colour or adhesive used for bindis (decoration), you must have a patch test on the skin.
PLEASE NOTE! Only pure henna is used. HENNA IS NOT BLACK IN COLOUR.
Henna described as "BLACK" may contain PPD, a harmful chemical or other chemicals which can be dangerous to the skin and health. Your new design will be light orange in colour when the paste if first removed.
Over the next 2 days the dye will oxidize and the stain will become darker and richer in colour. A dark orange/brown.
The designs can be decorated with body paint, glitter, crystals (bindis) and look great for a special night out made to match your outfit!
