Recipe Tips And Suggestions


  • Henna Powder
  • Bottled water
  • Eucalyptus oil or Clove oil
  • Tea bag
  • Okra
  • Sifter
  • A bowl
  • A spoon for mixing
  • Lemon juice


  1. Sift good quality Henna to remove excess particle of the plant.
  2. Heat water in a pan with a tea bag and a cut okra, boil and leave to infuse for few 4 hours.
  3. Sieve the mixture.
  4. Add lemon juice and Eucalyptus oil to henna powder.
  5. Add tea-Okra water slowly to the powder, mixing all the time until paste is quiet thick. Make sure there are no lumps and the paste resembles toothpaste (this the perfect consistency to work with)
  6. Pour the paste into cone shaped bag (something like a cake decorating bag or a applicator bottle could be used too).
  7. Push the paste all the way towards tip of the cone and seal the open end of the bag. Cut a very tiny hole at the end of the bag.
  8. And you are ready to let your creativity flow. (Once mixed the paste could be used up to four weeks, if refrigerated).

Recipe #2

If you have some fresh henna leaves or freshly dried henna leaves, grind it in your grinder or food processor with lemon juice and eucalyptus oil to a smooth paste with no lumps. Apply design on a clean hand and you will get a brilliant cherry color in only a few minutes.

The paste needs to be left on the skin for a minimum of six hours to obtain rich and deep color.
To keep henna paste moist apply a solution of lemon juice and sugar with a cotton ball, be careful not to apply too much or the paste will run.
Once henna dries it will flake off naturally. You can use a butter knife to help you remove dried henna and apply mustard oil right after over the design to deepen the color further. You should not expose the area to water for at least 12 hours.
