Henna or Lawsonia inermis, is known by may names throughout the world.

The name henna also refers to the dye prepared from the plant and the art of temporary body art (staining) based on those dyes. Henna has been used since antiquity to dye skin, hair and fingernails, as well as fabrics including silk, wool and leather. Natural safe Henna is NEVER black. Black Henna is dangerous. If you are unsure ask the artist what ingredients are used to make the paste. Typical Henna paste is made with Henna powder, lemon juice and essential oils.

Historically, henna was used for cosmetic purposes primarily in Ancient India. It was also found to be used in the Arabian Peninsula, Morocco, South Asia, Carthage and other parts of North Africa, and the Horn of Africa. Bridal henna nights remain an important custom in many of these areas, particularly among traditional families. (Edited text from Wikipedia)

Henna lasts longer if you take care of it both while it drying after application (about 10-15 minutes), leaving the dried paste on the skin as long as possible (4-6 hours minimum) and during the first 24 hours after paste removal. Swimming and sun make a difference. Please see my Henna Care page for more info.
