Henna Trails

Purely natural henna in Chico, California est.2009

Hello March Henna

Henna Outdoors.

“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru

Henna is an ancient, yet temporal beauty ritual with enduring traditions and patterns. Henna Trails’ henna is hand mixed from certified Organic henna leaves and quality essential oils for a purely natural and safe experience in body art. Henna patterns dry in 20 minutes, keeping the paste intact at least 4-8 hours will reveal deep henna stains. Henna stains all healthy skin types with a red brown tone and lasts 7-10 days. Walk in beauty.

Its 2015 and I have henna studio hours for you!

A little henna post from my sister site, Our Folk Life.

I took the Skyway to Paradise, California for a Bollywood inspired blessingway under tall pines. Local yogi, Christina of Positive-I transformed her backyard with visually rich textiles, garlands, flowers and saris. Two joining canopies set with low tables, mats, pillows and flowers awaited clusters of  joyous women in attendance for the mother to be. Such beautiful surroundings certainly inspired everyone in many ways that day.

Christina and I took a moment to go over my sketches inspired by the design and intent she had in mind. She chose a lotus design, greatly inspired by Tibetan folk art, with a touch of India folk art. I quietly set to work with my henna cones as she visited with friends, finishing her design in about 45 minutes. She continued in repose until her henna paste dried, 15 minutes or so. She then joined her guests under the canopies to commune and slowly…

California Worldfest 2014 was amazing as usual, I was there with my henna artistry. You can read all about it on my sister site, Our Folk Life.

We were so happy to return to California World Fest 2014 to share the artistry of natural henna in such a beautiful mountain environment. We left the valley floor and climbed into the Sierras to the Grass Valley fairgrounds for 4 days of International music, food, henna, camping and really so much more. This festival has been a family favorite for us, even before I shared my henna by the Meadow Stage. Thank you all for your natural beauty and patience as I unfurled henna designs for all of you by hand! Saturday and Sunday I was able to take some time to properly photograph the henna we shared, it was so nice to capture the spirit of our weekend! See you next year or you can always find me in the Thursday Night Market in Downtown Chico, California!

I hope to see you beautiful people next year at California World…

Kristy McCurry:

I’d like to dedicate this photographic blog post to the wonderfully kind Rose who sold me her Canon eos at her yard sale by the park in Chico,California. Having a solid camera to learn on has cracked open my artistic world to whole new places. I am so grateful and having a wonderful time using my new to me camera. So much gratitude!

Our setting sun lit the gardens as we relaxed in the quiet afternoon. Simple wholesome foods and drink were all we needed as we shared dreams, visions and stories of far places. The henna is a temporal gift of adornment, lasting 7-10 days and fading away naturally. Our henna is made purely from henna leaves, tamarind tea, cajeput essential oil and a touch of raw sugar. This henna paste is carefully applied freehand in intricate and swirling patterns upon the skin, a beautification tradition used for centuries between women. henna_party_chico_ourfolklife_media07henna_party_chico_ourfolklife_media06henna_party_chico_ourfolklife_media04henna_party_chico_ourfolklife_media02henna_party_chico_ourfolklife_media01
