The History of Henna


Henna, also known as Mehndi, was one of the first beauty products ever developed and is an ancient form of body art that has been practiced in the Middle East, India and Africa throughout the ages.

The art of henna began over 5,000 years ago when people used henna paste from a tree to cool their bodies down, leaving a henna stain on the skin. This led to creating intricate designs for decorative purposes.

Today, people all over the world use henna to celebrate special occasions from weddings to Eid and as an alternative to a more permanent tattoo.
