The art of henna has become increasingly popular in Western culture during the last few decades; being used primarily as a natural hair dye or a trendy ornamental form of hand and foot art. It is one of the most well known botanicals on earth, yet it is also quite possibly the least underutilized for it’s many healing properties.

Most people associate henna with India as it remains an integral part of the Indian wedding tradition for the bride to have her hands, arms and feet covered in elaborate designs. Though it’s history and usage span all around the Middle East. It’s oldest reported use dates back to 1200 BC, where it was utilized in Egypt to dye the hair and nails of pharaohs, and also during the mummification process. It was even said that Cleopatra herself used henna to adorn her body.

Perhaps Henna’s most well observed quality is it’s natural cooling effect, which offers a delightful tingling sensation to the skin (similar to chewing spearmint gum and drinking cold water). Once this property was discovered, people of the desert, used henna to cool down their bodies. By making a henna paste and smearing it on themselves, they achieved an air conditioning effect. The sensation is felt throughout the body for as long as the henna stain remains on their skin. It didn’t take long before the desert people turned the henna smears into works of art. Thus the mehndi tradition was birthed.

For centuries, mehndi—the art of henna painting on the body—has been believed to bring love, good fortune, prosperity, and protect the wearer against evil.
