ABOUT THE ART
Henna (Lawsonia inermis, also known as hina, henna tree, mignonette tree, Egyptian privet) is a flowering plant that grows 12-15 feet high and comes from the sole species of the Lawsonia genus. The English name "henna" comes from the Arabic (ḥinnā). The name henna also refers to the dye prepared from the henna plant and the art of temporary tattooing based on those dyes. Henna has been used for centuries to dye skin, hair, and fingernails, as well as fabrics including silk, wool, and leather.
The art of henna (Mehandi) has been practiced for over 5000 years in India, Pakistan, Africa and the Middle East. Because henna has natural cooling properties, people of the desert, for centuries, have been using henna to cool down their bodies.
Henna is used for many reasons including: self-expression; celebration of special occasions like weddings, holidays & birthdays; inspiration; reminders; beauty; cosmetic treatments; medicinal uses; blessings.
Henna works on all skin types. Henna is a symbol of beauty, art, and happiness and is meant for EVERYONE!!!!!!
