History Behind Heena

The history and origins for the use of Henna is difficult to trace. With centuries of migrations and cultural intermingling it is hard to know, which culture and people started to use Henna first.
Indian caves paintings depicting deities decorated with Mehndi and dating from the fourth and fifth centuries indicates that Henna was used in India much earlier than anywhere else.
There is an archeological evidence to suggest that the ancient Egyptians used Henna to color their nails, hair and even beards. Traces of Henna have been found on the nails and hair of mummified Pharoahs.
The Prophet Mohammed is believed to have used Henna to color his hair and beard, a practice that is used to this day. Mohammed also liked his wives to color their nails with henna.
