Henna Painting and Tattoos with MehndiSol Alicia Lyter
June 15 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
Henna is an ancient mostly feminine tradition and heralds from India, Africa and the Middle East. In the desert, mehndi began as a way to keep the body cool. One of the properties of the henna plant is the cooling effect as long as there is color.
Many ceremonies have developed around the painting of henna on the skin. Special occasions are accented with the tradition of mehndi - weddings, birthdays, baby showers and more. Henna body art is more than painting a pretty design on your skin; it serves as a time to relax, slow down and feel beautiful. It can also be a time for women to gather together to support each other in a sacred way.
