Henna or Mehndi is very popular in India as well as in other eastern countries like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan etc. If you are new to the term Henna or Mehndi, it is basically a natural dye that’s extracted from a plant grown in tropical hot climates called Lawsonia inermis. It is similar to black tea which is also an organic dye. The leaves and stems of the plant are grounded into a paste after drying them and is mixed with an acidic substance to produce colour.

It is a part of Eastern traditions especially India where Mehndi is used for all auspicious occasions like weddings, baby showers and festivals to bring good luck. In Indian Hindu culture, brides apply henna for the long life of the groom. These days henna is used as temporary tattoos and hair dyes too. Many young girls are seen using it as body art as it is natural and sheds off easily after a period of time.
