Henna as it is called in Moslem countries or Mehendi as it is known in India is named in Latin as Lawsonia inermis. This is a plant extensively grown and used in UAE, Africa and India generally for cosmetic purposes as it is considered highly auspicious. Henna is also used as a medicinal plant by Unani and ayurvedic doctors with excellent results.

The Mehendi Pattern Designs

There are many ways to create mehendi patterns. Some apply it in bulk creating a big round on the palms and feet. Additionally each finger is coated upto the first bend including the nail with henna. This is mostly seen with the dancers of Indian traditional dances such as Kathak, Oddissi, Kathakali, etc

The mehendi is prepared in a certain manner, i.e. take a cup of henna leaves and grind it to a paste, add to it the juice of half a lemon, few drops of eucalyptus oil and the paste of about five cloves. Add to it two tablespoons of coffee. Mix thoroughly and the put it in a butter paper mehendi cone. Make a very, very tiny incision at the end of the cone and use it as you would use a pencil to draw on the hand and legs..

Once applied you would need to keep the designed pattern moistened as long as you can. Use a mixture of sugar and lemon water to keep it from drying. In about six hours it would dry up when you could remove the caked henna. The color will continue to darken overnight unless you put water on the decorated body parts.
