*Shipping to Canada and Mexico available upon request. Please message us to inquire.
Please Note: All pre-filled henna and hengua cones only ship out on Monday-Wednesday to guarantee freshness.
I create a special blend of Henna Powder using a few Rajasthani Henna powders which achieve a nice dark stain (when after care is followed properly)
Henna stains reddish brown and Hengua stains dark brown to black.
Hengua Cones are only made with Eucalyptus/Tea Tree Essential Oil blend.
Henna Cones are approximately 20-22 Grams each
Hengua Cones are approximately 15-17 Grams each
All Henna and Hengua Cones are made fresh weekly and should be stored in the freezer when not in use. You can store them in the freezer for up to 3-6 months and after that it may start to loose its consistency and color.
I recommend for Pregnancy Henna, Henna Crowns, Henna for small children and those with sensitivities to order the Lavender Henna Cones as it is the least likely to cause sensitivities.
These are the same cones I use in my Henna Body Art Business with a Smooth, Stringy, Elastic consistency and a DARK stain.
It is also recommended to choose a shipping option that is within 1-3 days, due to henna being a perishable item and the oils will start to separate if it is kept out of the freezer for too long when not in use.
WHAT IS HENNA:
Henna is a small tree/shrub which is found in Southern Asia, Northern Africa and Northern Australasia.
The leaves of the Henna Plant are dried, milled and sifted to create a powder which is mixed with liquids such as water and lemon juice to create a Henna Paste.
When henna is first removed from the skin it has an orange stain and darkens over the next 24-48 hours to a maroon/brown color.
Soles of the feet and palms have the thickest layer of skin which take up the most Lawson therefore the hands and feet will have the darkest and most long-lasting stains.
Natural Henna stains only brown to maroon color. Products sold as "black henna" or "neutral henna" DO NOT contain henna, but instead are made from other plants or from other substances all together.
PPD (Para-phenylendiamine) which is found in most "black henna" can cause severe allergic reactions, with blistering intense itching, permanent scarring and permanent chemical sensitivities.
Henna has been practiced for centuries in Northern Africa, Southern Asia, Middle East, and Europe. It has been used across all religions for various reasons such as marriage, pregnancy, circumcisions, holidays and much more. Certain designs have different meanings for different cultures. Some find good health, fertility, wisdom, spiritual protection, or luck in henna designs. For weddings some men even take part in henna, masculine designs in certain cultures are more basic and small compared to a feminine design where it can cover her entire hands, arms, feet and legs.
WHAT IS HENGUA:
Hengua is a blend of Jagua Juice and Henna.
Jagua is a fruit from the Genipa Americana Tree and grows in the tropical and sub tropical regions of South and Central America and Southern Mexico.
It has been primarily used by the indigenous people of Columbia, Peru and Panama.
The juice from the fruit contains a natural dye which leaves a black stain on the skin. It stains the skin in a similar way as henna.
When the paste of hengua is first removed from the skin, it stains light grey and darkens over the next 24-48 hours to a black/dark brown.
If you are allergic to any berries or have very sensitive skin it is advised to test a small patch before doing a full tattoo as some people may be allergic to the Jagua juice.
