Someone told me today they have always wanted to try henna, but they keep reading horror stories about chemical burns & blisters. 🍃The word 'henna' gets used to describe a STYLE of body art that can be applied with a variety of products from body-safe cosmetics and pastes to nasty (dangerous) products and pastes. 🌱The word HENNA also applies to the henna plant (Lawsonia inermis)which is used to make a beautiful, SAFE*, temporary art on the body. 🍃Let's talk about *SAFE: everyone has sensitivities, even to natural products... do ask your artist where s/he sources the raw materials, and ask for an ingredient list. Professional artists will be happy to share!
