The description of Best Mehndi Designs 2017

Mehendi is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Mendhika’. Hindu Vedic texts reveal that it was a custom to use mehendi before an important religious ritual. It is the symbolic representation of the inner and outer sun. Since, Vedic customs are based on the idea ‘awakening the inner light.’

Mehendi is the local name for henna designs in the Indian subcontinent, since the idea of using henna to decorate hands originated in Arabia. Though the whole concept of mehendi is borrowed from other countries, it still has the Indian touch to it.

Mehendi represents Indian culture, it is extensively used in decorating hands and feet during weddings and every other auspicious occasion you can think off!

Henna tree is also called the Egyptian Privet or Mignonette tree. It is a flowering plant that belongs to the species of Lawsonia Genus. The name ‘henna’ is derived from the Arabic word ‘Hinna’. Henna is a tall shrub that is indigenous to North Africa, Western and Southern Asia, Northern Australasia, semi-arid zones and tropical countries. The plant produces the maximum dye when cultivated in temperatures within 35 to 45 degree centigrade and also during monsoons.

The compound Lawsone present in the henna leaf is the actual dye. If you use whole henna leaves you will not get any colour. When fresh henna leaves are mashed along with some mild acidic liquid then the Lawsone molecules are released. The molecules bind the proteins in the skin thus leaving behind the beautiful red colour.
