The Origin of Henna: 
Henna painting is originally an Indian folklore. It was called mehndi in Hindi and Urdu, and has been practiced for over 5000 years in many countries like Pakistan, India, Africa and the Middle East. In some countries, Henna is used in weddings for brides to have tattoo like paintings with no needles and it only lasts for like a week. 


Because henna has natural cooling properties, most people who live in the deserts have been using henna to cool down their bodies for centuries. They make a paste of Henna and get their palms and soles of the feet soaked it that paste to get a fresh and cooling effect. As long as the henna pasta remains on their skin, it gives them the feeling of a cooling sensation all over the body. 

 

As for the decorative usage of Henna, it is mostly used in bridal shower parties in the Middle Eastern countries, known as Henna parties. Henna parties are usually held on the night before the big day, when the bride and her best friends gather at the bride’s house to get Henna paintings done by someone specialized in this art work. During the ancient Egyptian period, it is documented that Queen Cleopatra herself used henna for decorative purposes.
