Henna is a natural dye grown from a plant and has been practiced for over 5000 years in Pakistan, India, Africa and the Middle East. Henna may be as much as over 9000 years old, and in ancient Egypt, Cleopatra herself may have used henna for decorative purposes. Today, henna art is still practiced by men and women all over the world. When mixed into a natural paste, henna is used as temporary dye for beautiful body art by skilled artists. It’s generally used today to express luck and happiness and is often featured at ceremonial events like weddings and births.
