Henna tattoo body painting, aka Henna tattoos, aka Mehndi tattoos—the Indian word for henna body painting—has been practiced for thousands of years in India, Africa and the Middle East. The henna plant is believed to bring love, luck and prosperity. Henna tattoos involves using a paste made from the crushed leaves of the henna plant; when applied to the skin, it leaves beautiful markings that fade naturally over 1 week to 10 days.Earth Henna™is a unique, all-natural henna mix, which was created to simplify the centuries-old application process into easy to use Henna kits. Once mixed, Earth Henna™ paste lasts 4 weeks, if refrigerated (instead of 3 days); proper staining of skin is achieved in just 6 hours (instead of 24 hours). Our Earth Henna™ Henna Tattoo Kits feature wonderful henna stencils to help you create beautiful henna designs.
