Aftercare is important.
To get the best stain from your henna, leave the paste on your skin as long as possible. 4-6 hours, or overnight. When you first take the henna off, it will be orangy in color and much lighter than the end product. The stain will oxidize to it's darkest color over the next 2-3 days. Watching this slow oxidization process is part of the magic of this art! And it is also why if you are getting your henna for a special occasion, you will want to have it done at least two days before :)

Henna is a small flowering plant.
The scientific name is Lawsonia Inermis. The word "Henna" is used for the name of the plant as well as the art. The above picture shows the first step in creating henna paste in which the leaves are dried and ground to a fine powder. Real henna only contains pure and natural ingredients, usually henna powder, lemon juice and essential oils. The paste is greenish brown in color and can be used to stain the skin beautifully in all sorts of designs. (Stay away from black henna as it contains harmful chemicals.)
The origins and history
of Henna can be hard to trace, but historians say that this plant has been used for over 5 thousand years for cosmetic and healing purposes. The art of Henna as body decoration has been practiced for centuries in Pakistan, India, South Asia, and the Middle East by Christians, Muslims, Jews and Hindus alike. Contrary to the beliefs of some, the art of Henna is not specific to any religion. Traditionally, it has been used by many cultures to celebrate life events, such as marriage or the birth of a child.
Christina Mendez grew up in Southern California and now lives in Tempe Arizona. She travels often and loves to learn about new cultures. Always an artist searching for her medium, from dancing and singing, to instruments, drawing and painting, she has now found it in Henna. She also does Face Painting and Balloon Twisting for all types of events in the East Valley Phoenix area. Christina also volunteers with an organization that aids survivors of human trafficking. This is a very serious issue facing all of our young women of today, and much more prominent than most realize. If you would like to make a donation to the cause please do so! ---->
