  • How to Apply Mehndi?

    You can make your own Mehndi powder by drying henna leaves in shade. It might take weeks for them to dry to a crisp and you need to grind them thoroughly. You may also buy henna Mehndi cones and Mehndi powder from the market.

    1. Henna Mehndi powder sieved through a muslin cloth.
    2. Well strained strong tea decoration.
    3. Eucalyptus oil (few drops).
    4. Strained lime juice.
    5. Sugar (one table spoon).

    Take the henna Mehndi powder in a bowl, add the tea till it becomes a thick paste (similar to a dough). Add eucalyptus oil, sugar and lime juice and mix well to make it into a smooth and thin paste.
    Leave it covered over night or during the day if you prefer to apply in the night.

    Make a cone....
    Take a thick plastic cover or use any thick freezer bag - cut it into shape of rectangle 7" X 4". Twist one corner of the cover to make a cone. Tighten the tip to make tiny hole. Hold the tip and fill the paste and tie the broader end tightly with a thread.

    You also get ready-made cones from the market.

    Let imagination fly...
    Now have fun. What ever you draw is beautiful Mehndi patterns and is a master piece of Mehndi Designs your own.

    You should leave the Mehndi to dry on your skin and keep it on for as long as possible (4 to 6 hours if possible - you may go to bed also with it). Scrape it after that. The color will become deeper if you leave it untouched by water for another 4 to 6 hours. A deep color may last upto two weeks. The coloration varies from person to person.
