The name henna refers to the dye prepared from the Lawson plant and the art of temporary body art (staining) based on those dyes. Henna has been used since antiquity to dye skin, hair and fingernails, as well as fabrics.Dried henna leaves will stain the skin if they are mashed into a paste.Since it is difficult to form intricate patterns from coarse crushed leaves, henna is commonly traded as a powder made by drying, milling and sifting the leaves. The dry powder is mixed with one of a number of liquids, including water, lemon juice, or strong tea, and other ingredients depending on the tradition. Many artists use sugar or molasses in the paste to improve consistency and keep it stuck to the skin better. The henna mix must rest for 5 to 15 hours before use, to release the lawsone from the leaf matter. The timing depends on the crop of henna being used. Essential oils with high levels of alcohols, such as tea tree, cajeput, or lavender, will improve skin stain characteristics. Mehndi is available in a cone-shaped tube and is made into designs for men and women. The designs are intricate and beautiful.
