What is Mehndi?

Mehndi is the art of henna painting, an alluring art derived from North India,  But today it has become a popular art in the whole world.

In the olden days, people used to grind leaves from Mehndi trees (Lawsonia inermis) and use the resultant paste to decorate their hands.

Nowadays, the mehndi dye that we see in the form of beautiful designs is made from ground Mehndi leaves.

The ground paste is mixed with a few other ingredients like lemon juice and applied using cones. The cones are filled with the mehndi paste, and squeezed on the palms, as designs, much like icing a cake.

The designs are washed off after a few hours. The resulting mehndi stain stays on for about a couple of weeks.
