Henna is a beautiful way to honour the experience of carrying a child. The ‘henna experience’ is being incorporated into Baby Showers, Blessingways and Pregnancy Photography all over the world.
Henna is traditionally used in birthing rituals in India, North Africa, South East Asia, Middle East and Turkey. Henna designs done on the belly is a modern take on prenatal henna which is traditionally it is done on the hands, feet and ankles. For these cultures the properties of henna and the designs themselves are considered to empower the mother with protection, purification and blessings.
The henna application is therapeutic leaving the recipient feeling relaxed, honored and nourished. Its a wonderful gift or commemorative for the expectant mother!
