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.

This is for all of you inspired by the natural beauty which surrounds us, inspires us and offers us a healthy lifestyle. Here, we are never far from volcanoes, canyons, creeks, valleys, impossibly large sprawling oak trees and plenty of sunshine allowing for a simple lifestyle full of beauty. We work with our hands, carefully turning out artistry to bless the wearer and recipient,  it’s what we love to do for you. We believe in the natural beauty of you. What can we do for you?

All the beautiful jewelry is made by Jenmoon Creations. Our friend, model and potter is California Soulshine. Photography by Sasha Fox. Purely natural henna by yours truly, Henna Trails.

Summer is your perfect time for henna! Henna is the naturalista’s body adornment of choice. Temporal, yet steeped in ancient tradition and purely natural, made by hand from the leaves of the henna plant and infused with artistic skills. Purely natural henna stains last 7-10 days; as your skin exfoliates, your henna will gradually fade away completely. Henna stains your hands and feet the best, your henna stains will be lighter elsewhere.

 

Exploring Moroccan fan motifs

Last week I found myself drawn to Moroccan style henna designs. I wanted a bit of strong geometric lines, floral, and some of those fan accents in my Tuesday personal  henna. I am loving the fan accents, I have neglected using them in the past and now I am inspired to put them in many designs! Which I did. Last week at the Thursday Night Market, where I have so many opportunities to do “artist’s choice” designs. Lots of my clients choose this and it gives me a chance to go with the flow and see what conspires. One of the most popular design styles in my tent, consistently, is Moroccan. The designs I offer  are from the e-book, “Moor on the Spot” available thru Henna Tribe.

How Henna Trails explored the use of fan elements in henna design last week, May 2012…

combining elements I love, as inspired by fellow henna artists

Oh, I can totally use fan accents in this design….

The floral centers are from “Lavender” and I added the fan accents to the motif.

A heart and eye henna design thought to ward off jealousy. This motif is from “Moor on the Spot” by Lisa Butterworth and Nic Tharpa Cartier. Hugely popular style of henna in Chico, California
