Henna + Jagua Design

Natural Henna  

Henna (Mehndi) is an ancient body art tradition that has been practiced for centuries in South and Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa - intersecting all cultures and faith traditions. It is often associated with rites of passage and special occasions. The Henna plant (Lawsonia inermis), when dried, ground, made into a paste and applied to the skin, produces a completely natural, reddish-brown stain that lasts 1.5 - 2 weeks. (Authentic henna is NEVER black, nor does it come in  manufactured, shelf-stable cones or cause skin irritation).

Natural Henna is completely safe during pregnancy, for children and on all skin types and skin colours. Our henna paste is handmade using only body art quality Certified Organic Rajasthani henna powder from India, organic cane sugar, Lavender essential oil and distilled water. Safe for individuals with allergies or skin sensitivities.

Appointments in Jagua Gel are also available for those who prefer a dark grey-black stain (but without the toxic chemicals and side effects of black henna!). Click on 'Jagua Gel Cones' below for more information.
