Monday Window: 13/6/16

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…..

  5. I love henna art… But had an awful experience. Im unsure if its the ink or the quality of the product but I had an allergic reaction and my skin was burned… After 2yrs i finally see the area clearing up. I really want to get it done again but im scared I will have the same reaction.


    • Hi Jenn, I’m sorry to hear that you had such a bad reaction, 2 years to clear up, it must have been quite a reaction. Maybe you should run a patch test before you do it again, what a shame to have had such an experience…
