Henna Paste Recipe

The dark brown color of henna is not unfamiliar to anyone. The rich, dark aromatic color that this natural coloring powder, when mixed with water and other additives, provides has a long history to its credit. Largely used in the South Asian and North African countries, henna is used to color hands, feet, hair, and of late, to create sensual body art on other parts of the body, like navel, legs, neck, and back. Prepared from the crushed leaves and twigs of the henna plant, henna, or mehndi as it’s known commonly, leaves a color ranging from orange to red to dark maroon, which stays on for 4-5 days and fades gradually within 1-2 weeks. It makes a great alternative for people who wish to create beautiful designs on their body without getting a permanent tattoo engraved. Also, when used in the hair, it makes the hair healthy, thicker, and shinier, and provides protection against the harmful effects of the sun. While you spend scores of money at the parlor to get your hair colored and hands decorated with intricate designs, you can prepare henna paste at home as well, with a simple recipe. Read on to know how to make henna or mehndi paste.
