Henna is a safe, natural plant dye
Henna paste is made by crushing the dried leaves of the Henna plant into a powder. This powder is then mixed with water or lemon juice, as well as essential oils, and made into a paste. The paste is then applied onto the skin (usually using a cone similar to a cake icing cone). Once the paste dries, it flakes off and leaves behind an orange stain that darkens over the next couple of days. The stain can last for up to 3 weeks on the skin, and gradually fades off as the skin is exfoliated.
We have no concrete evidence of the initial use of Henna, however, its original use has purported to have been either in the Egypt or Syrian area. It has been used by numerous cultures across the centuries. Henna is for everyone!
