Today I will write about Henna painting.
WHAT IS HENNA PAINTING?
Henna painting "mehendi" is a unique fashion accessory that reveals our character, encourages creativity, relaxes and acts meditatively.Every pattern we draw anywhere - on paper, floor or table - emits its own frequency, energy. It’s the same with patterns we draw with henna on the body. The energy of the sample then passes through the energy points that we have the most on the soles and palms, into the biofield of the individual.
WHAT IS HENNA?
Henna (Lawsonia inermis) is a medicinal plant, as its leaves contain substances that have antifungal, antiviral and reduce swelling and pain.
Henna was also expelled from Europe due to ignorance. “Even in hairdressing schools, they often teach untruths about henna, such as to coat the hair and then rot it inside, to clog the scalp, cause hair loss and the like. This is the strategy of the cosmetics industry, in which a lot of money is at stake, "warns Velikanjeva. Not only is henna not harmful, but it is extremely healing. It works as a dye because its leaves contain the red-orange molecule Lawson, which binds to proteins in our skin, nails or hair, and this binding is so perfect, as it "penetrates like ink into the pub" that it does not damage anything, but noble and strengthens.
The painting of the body with henna, also called Mehendi (which in Hindu means kana. Kana!) Originates from India and the eastern lands. Women in the East, after several hours, beautified their bodies with mehendi. Traditionally, this was done especially on various religious and personal holidays. No wedding was complete without mehendi. The painting was worn not only by the bride, but by all the women present at the wedding. According to tradition, there was no bride, after the wedding nothing had to be done until her painting had completely faded.
The tradition of henna painting has spread from the east all over the world and also to Europe. It intertwined with the work of artists and became a popular way of adorning the bodies of women as well as men. Henna painting can be a fashion accessory at an important event. It can be a pleasant and relaxing time with friends, or by doing a painting, we can show love to ourselves.
Henna painting can be practiced by anyone, but making the right mixture is quite a difficult task. "There are as many recipes as there are artists," says the henna master, who adds lemon juice to the mixture, essential oils to oxidize the color, and fructose, which allows them not to break while drawing lines, while adding chemicals can burn the skin. and leave permanent scars. The prepared mass is then filled into home-made cones with a clipped tip, which are like a “painting brush” with which henna is applied to the skin. When the drawn pattern dries slightly, it is rubbed with lemon juice, which enhances the penetration of the pigment into the skin, and sugar, which makes a glaze so that the slurry does not crack and fall off. It is recommended to keep it on the skin for at least six hours for a darker and more lasting pattern.
WHAT KIND OF MATERIALS THEY USE FOR PAINTINGS?
Henna is a natural dye that gives a nice brown (from light to darker shade) color to the pattern.
Hengua is henna with added jagua juice. The painting has darker shades, from dark brown to dark gray.

The two-color painting is very interesting. When performing, we use henna and hengua at the same time.

But Mehendi is not just a painting on the body with interesting patterns. Henna has always been known for its healing and cleansing effect, so it is used in medicine and cosmetics. Each pattern in the painting has its own meaning and above all protects man and his own energy.
I can say that the process of painting with henna is similar to meditation. You feel relaxation, inner harmony and peace.
