Henna is an organic plant-based skin stain that's been used for 1000’s of years!
• Hand mixed under a new or full moon and kept fresh in freezer.
• 100% organic mix of food-quality ingredients: lemon juice, sugar, and essential oils (Can custom mix to accommodate citrus allergies)
• Independent Lab Certified free of lead and pesticides
• Lasts 1-4 weeks on the skin and then gradually wears away
• Works best on hands and feet — the farther down on extremities the better
Natural Henna / Mehndi lasts one to four weeks. White Henna, Body Gilding, Temporary and Glitter Tattoos last up to seven days.
To get the best result, keep the henna paste paste on your skin for 4-12 hours. Flake off paste (do not wash).
For darker staining, the paste can be sealed to the skin with lemon/sugar solution or (carefully) with medical tape.
Keeping the area warm will also increase the staining.
Keep it dry to make the design last.
Seal with coconut oil to bathe.
Wear gloves for dishes, etc. Chlorine and solvent-containing lotions/substances will diminish stain.
Stain will be bright orange and light the first day. After 48+ hours your henna will “bloom” to its fullest color.
Gilding, Glitter, and Temporary Tattoos
Glitter Mehndi is an FDA approved cosmetic grade material applied either freehand (henna style) or with a stencil. It is waterproof and lasts up to 1 week.
Gild looks like liquid metal and uses real metal powders.
Glitter tattoos are applied in free-hand henna style (glitter mehndi) or by using popular stencils.
Mica powders are natural, mineral-based products and can be used in place of glitter.
Temporary tattoos are painted on with special paints and set with powder ("White Henna").
All gilding, glitter, and temporary tattoos can be removed with rubbing alcohol or time. Oil, sweat, and lotion will also fade or remove your art.
For maximum durability, place designs on the body in areas with NO hair and in areas that do not receive lots of friction.
Face / Body Painting
We use FDA Approved Cosmetic-grade paints. These are the gentlest on the market and contain aloe, chamomile, coconut, and pigments. Paints wash off with soap and warm water. Use a dark washcloth to avoid staining your linens.
