Each packet is packed in a clear zipper bag. You should store the henna powder in a cool, dark place, like a closet or medicine cabinet. Contrary to modern belief, DRY henna powder should not be stored in the fridge or freezer, as it increases exposure to moisture and the chance of freezer burns.
Our organic henna powder is recommended for multiple uses. We recommend this powder for all types of users, from beginners to professionals.
Body Art: Triple sifted powder makes our organic henna powder the perfect choice for body art applications. We recommend that you gently sift the powder before mixing in order to break up clumps of henna due to vacuum seal. Our powder is triple sifted, so any bumps in your paste are due to the vacuumed sealing and not because of any debris or quality of the powder. Mix the powder with water, lemon juice, or tea. Add essential oils of your choice and fill into an applicator of your choice. Full instructions, recipes and details can be found here: http://www.hennaart.ca/Henna-Recipes.html

WHERE DOES THIS HENNA COME FROM?
Our organic henna powder comes from the Rajasthan region of India. Our Organic Henna Powder was formerly known as “Raj Henna”
Rajasthan is known for its premium quality henna powder. Because of low rainfalls, and drought seasons, Rajasthani henna produces high dye content (lawsone molecule), thus, is the best to use for body art. The natural stringiness of Rajasthani henna make for smooth applications, and our fresh henna powder ensures great stain quality. Rajasthani henna is bright green in color, and has a distinct smell like hay and grass.
Rajasthan's henna growing regions get less than 40 cm of rain per year. When the monsoon season brings less rains to Rajasthan, the henna crops grow smaller, however, have a higher dye content. The henna plant does not require extensive watering or irrigation, thus making it appealing for many farmers. Because of low skilled labor required to grow and harvest the henna plant, many farm based families can sustain themselves. Women are usually responsible for weeding and harvesting, while men take care of soil preparation and transportation. Every part of the henna plant is utilized. The leaves are dried and milled into henna powder for body art and hair; the flowers are gathered and pressed for perfume oil, and the twigs are used to feed the cattle. Thus, farmers in India regard the henna plant as a desirable crop, as well as part of their heritage.
