Henna, or mendhi, is an ancient art form that has roots in the Middle East, Africa and other semi-arid regions where the plant Lawsonia inermis happily grows. Traditionally it was used for marriage ceremonies and other rites of passage.
I was introduced to henna in 1999 and immediately felt a connection that has developed over time into Henna Love Tahoe. It has been a continual learning process ~ from how to mix my own paste, rolling cones, and care for the paste after application.
My henna paste is all natural, organic Rajasthani powder that I procure from Henna Lounge. I mix my henna with black tea and cajeput essential oils. Contact me with any recipe or mixing questions - I'm happy to share what I know!
Please remember that henna paste is always a brown color - whether light or dark. It is never any other color. Stay away from black henna! It is often mixed with chemicals that can cause burns on the skin. Henna cones that you buy on the shelf at the store are usually black henna. Henna is perishable. Powder and paste should always remain in the fridge or freezer.
Contact me if you are interested in purchasing pre-made henna paste.
