For over five thousand years henna has been a symbol of good luck, health, and sensuality in the Arab world. The plant has been associated with positive magic and provides us with a link to an ancient age full of good and bad spirits, baraka and jnoun.
It is not uncommon to see Emirati and Omani women with henna designs applied to hands and feet and there are beauty salons specifically for henna application. Several years ago I had a henna design applied to my arm, it’s painless and fades eventually.
My windows this week are from Henna salons on the East coast of the UAE….
Joining into Monday Windows, pop over and join in the fun…..
