Henna is known as "mehendi" in Indian tradition. It derives from the Arabic "hinna" and its scientific name is lawsonia inermis or mignonette tree.

Henna has many therapeutic, decorative and symbolic uses.
Because of its therapeutic action against dry skin, henna is used to heal wounds and cuts, as a conditioner for hair and roots and to strengthen nails.

It is also used as hair coloring.

It is used extensively for non-permanent tattoos, particularly for marriage ceremonies.

Many customs surround these tattoos, such as hiding the secret of the husband’s name in the image that is drawn with the henna. In these cases, henna acts as a connector to the spiritual and is supposed to bring happiness, prosperity and joy to a couple.

In ancient Vedic texts, mehendi has the ability to stimulate a person’s inner sun.

Henna is a powder obtained by crushing dry leaves and mixing the power with water (or tea or coffee to darken the color, lemon juice to highlight color and sugar to stabilize the dye).

With the resulting paste delicate images are drawn on a person’s hands or feet, with traditional tools. The image is left to dry for several hours and then rinsed. The tattoo will remain for up to three weeks, depending on factors such as the ambient temperature and level of dryness. The stain gets lighter with time or turns orange.
It is not advisable to use artificial colorings to darken the image as this can cause various medical problems.
