Henna - An Evolution Journey To Be Told

But the question is, how early were these days? What brought henna to be used as a product of beauty? What is really the story of henna?
Origin of the ‘Mehndhika’

Mehendi (henna) is term originated from the Sanksrit word, mehndhika. Known for the cooling edge and the tattoo effect it leaves behind, henna was an invention of the Indus Valley civilization at an early age.

The first evidence of henna was shown from 3300 BC to 1300 BC, when the people of the civilization, precisely the women used henna to draw patterns and art on the walls and pottery material. This was further used on the skin because as an agent of nature, it never had any side effects. It was used in the rawest of forms to color the skin too as it left behind a shade of red that would amplify the beauty of a woman. But that was not all, because henna has traveled places just like it has today.

The Egyptians Had Something To Color Too

Amidst the love that Indus Valley shared for henna, the fragrance of the plant reached the Egyptian world as they used henna for their religious ceremonies and art in 5000 BC. It grew more beloved in the reign of Queen Cleopatra, who was an epitome of beauty. Her charm was mystic and undeniably the best thing to onlook back in 51 BC. She chose to amplify her beauty by using henna to tattoo her body with intricate and distinct designs.

As Henna Travelled Back To India…

The ‘Maharajas’ and their ‘raj mahals’ had a love for henna that was celebrated with every auspicious and happy occasion. Not only was it a way of beautification but was also a marking of celebration. Be it festivals, weddings, fairs, or just a happy moment, women would choose to tattoo their hands with henna in unison. This eventually traveled to the feet too, as weddings were marked by mehendi nights that made the bride and all her bridesmaids adorn their hands and feet with the auspicious elements of henna. This is a ritual that is followed across the world originating from the hardcore love of henna from India.
