At Divine Henna we use henna paste prepared by ourselves so that we know exactly what goes into it. Our recipe includes
- organic henna powder
- organic essential oils (lavender, cajput or tea tree)
- Lemon juice or water
- dextrose or sugar
We NEVER use so called Black Henna due to its possible hazardous health effects.
All images on this website which show henna as black are simply henna in its first stage as a paste, the result is a red, brown or maroon colour. Any henna that does not result in a shade of red or brown is not henna! Be careful. White henna and gold henna are also in use now but are generally body art quality media lasting 1-5 days and usually safe. Ask your artist for their ingredients if in doubt.
