History Of Henna/Mehndi
Did you know henna or mehndi art has been practiced for over 5000 years in Pakistan, India,
AIn ancient times Henna was used as a dye for everything from skin (mehndi tattoos), hair, fingernails, as well as fabrics. frica and the Middle East. Egyptian times mummies wore henna designs and it is documented that even Cleopatra wore mehndi.
Henna has natural cooling properties, so the ancient people of the desert used henna to cool down their bodies. They made a paste of henna to soak their palms and soles of the feet. They noticed that as the stain faded away, it left patterns on the skin surface, which led to the idea to make designs for decorative purposes.
Henna is traditionally used for special occasions like holidays, birthdays and weddings in places like India, Pakistan and the Middle East. By far the most celebrated of the traditions is the Mehndi Night (or Night of Henna) where the bride, her family, relatives and friends get together to celebrate the wedding to come. Bridal henna patterns are usually done on the hands to elbows, and from the feet to the knees. The bridal patterns can take hours and are often done by multiple henna artists. The guests will usually receive small designs (tattoos) on the backs of their hands as well.
Today, brides prefer to have their henna done prior to the mehndi night so that they can enjoy
the festivities and also have a deeper stain by the wedding day.
Tradition holds that for as long as the henna stain appears on the bride, she doesn't have to do any housework! Also, the darker the stain the better the marriage and the better the mother-in-law will be! So you can imagine why the bride would want the stain to come out as dark as possible and to last a long time. Most henna stains the skin for 3 days to 2 weeks, depending on henna strength, skin type, placement of the tattoo and after care.
