Our signature recipe contains the following ingredients:
- Organic henna powder (lawsonia inermis)
- lemon juice
- tea tree essential oil
- cajeput essential oil
- naiouli essential oil
We recommend you use this paste for henna body art applications. When the paste arrives to you, freeze the cones in freezer safe bags or boxes. When you are ready to use your henna, just thaw the required number of cones each time. Thawing takes about 30 minutes at room temperature. Each 25 gram cone will let your apply about 4 to 15 designs, depending on the size and intricacy of your design. Keep in mind, henna paste is perishable, and will lose dye quality if you freeze and thaw the paste multiple times
THE HENNA PASTE PROCESS:
Henna paste must be carefully made to perfection in order to get the right consistency, stain quality, and flow. Our henna paste is handmade in small batches and tested each time for stain quality. Henna paste starts with raw materials. The henna is grown in hot, arid climates, like the farms of Morocco, India, and Pakistan. The henna is harvested just before the cooler months and monsoon seasons. Once harvested, the plants are put in the sun to dry. When the plants are dry, they are moved into large bags and transported to an indoor facility. This is where the henna plant gets ground up into a powder. Industrial machines help seperate the leaves from the veins and sticks. The leaves get crushed into a powder and sifted multiple times to yield a smooth, silky powder.
The powder is stored and packed in a temperature controlled facility. When we import the henna, we store the powders in a cool, dark place. Contrary to modern thought, henna should be stored in a cool, dark place, and NOT in the fridge or freezer. The powder is exposed to too much moisture in the fridge or freezer and will lose dye quality if not stored properly.
We mix the henna powder in small batches for our various pre-made pastes and cones. The henna powder gets mixed with lemon juice or water and sugar. We then add essential oils (for body art paste) and let the mixture rest. This resting time allows the henna paste go through dye release. Dye release is the time henna requires in order to release the lawsone dye molecule. This molecule is released with the presence of heat and acidity. We wait about 8-12 hours before packaging the henna paste.
The henna paste gets packaged into carrot bags first. Our Professional Henna cone pack contains henna cones that are ready to use, and are made to order. To make henna cones or mehndi cones, the henna gets squeezed into mylar or cello cones from the carrot bag. We then individually seal each henna cone and tape it shut. Each cone is then stored flat in our freezer until it is ready for use. We store ALL of our henna paste in the freezer. Henna paste can last up to 6 months in the freezer, 3-5 days in the fridge, and only 2-3 days at room temperature. It is best to store unused henna paste in the freezer. Repeated freezing and thawing will make the paste lose dye quality.
