Henna is a plant based dye. It is hand drawn in skin, left to dry for several hours, and then scraped off to reveal a stain underneath. The reddish brown stain can stay for up to a month depending on the location on the body.
Our henna is made in our family’s kitchen using a henna powder, sugar, essential oils, and water. We use only body art quality henna that is BROWN, never BLACK.
Black henna is dangerous and made up of chemicals to achieve a black stain. The plant is not black, it cannot stain black on it’s own. If you are looking for black, you should check out the dangers here: http://www.hennapage.com/henna/ppd/
- Leave on skin as long as possible. It can be covered with medical tape for sleeping if you’re feeling brave.
- Scrape off outside or over a garbage, you do not want to reactivate Henna on any items in your home. It will stain!
- You can scrape it off with your fingernails, a credit card, my business card, or the back of a butter knife.
- Do not use water to pull off any bits that didn’t scrape off, you can use some coconut oil to soften it to remove.
- Avoid water for 24 hours.
- Coconut oil regularly will help the stain last longer.
- Rubbing alcohol will remove stain faster.
- Swimming will pretty much destroy your stain.
Natural henna is safe for hair, skin and body for all ages that can sit still long enough for the stain time.
