What is Mehndi?
Mehndi (also called Mehandi) is the traditional art of painting the hands, feet or body with a paste made from the powdered, dried leaves of the henna plant. It leaves a usually cherry-red to brown color stain and varies with time left on and a range of other factors. Coffee, lemon, tea, and essential oils are sometimes added for texture, smell or to help the stain. Mehndi started in the Middle East and Northern Africa over 5,000 years ago. It has been used for artistic, ritual and ceremonial use.
Henna was first applied as a means to cool down the body. A dot was applied to the palm of the hands and helped to cool the body. In different cultures, different styles developed. There are fine lines of designs of Pakistan, India, arab nations while Moroccon has more geometric patterns.
