5 Sensual Bajuband Mehndi Designs ( Armlet) That Will Inspire You

Henna designs have been blossoming and then fading in the hands of brides for many centuries now, and one of the forms they take is the bajuband mehndi design. Not only are these temporary tattoos intricate, and aesthetically pleasing, but they also carry great cultural significance. The red hues of the mehndi are considered auspicious for the bride as she begins her life anew with her husband.

Not only that, recent research has indicated that mehndi actually has several health benefits for your skin as well. It has a very cooling effect on your skin, and will help you beat the wedding stress. It can actually be used as an astringent, and has been proven to be exceedingly effective in killing off bacteria. So it seems like some superstitions may actually be based on rationality and reason!
