Henna scientifically referred to as Lawsonia Inermis, is a natural herb plant which is ground into a powder and then mixed with water and a few essential oils. When applied on body parts or on hair, it leaves a deep red color which can sustain for one to two weeks. It is considered safe, painless and non-permanent alternative form of body ornamentation. Henna is applied onto the skin to create beautiful artwork on hands, body, legs, belly button and behind the neck. The benefits of using Henna is that you can express yourself with creative designs onto your body and have the comfort of knowing that they will disappear within 1-2 weeks.
In the countries like India, Pakistan and part of Middle-east, henna is used for a variety of events such as weddings and religious occasions.
