Traditional Practices

Henna is believed to bring love and good fortune and protect against evil. It has a history of spirituality and is linked with marriages, birth, festivals, and in the time of other joyous ceremonies. Henna probably is the oldest art form known to man.
In India it is considered auspicious for a bride to have her hands and feets painted a day before her wedding with beautiful intricate designs. This is a very important part of the wedding ritual and ceremony. As the story goes, the deeper the color of henna obtained on the skin, the longer the love between the couple will last.
In the Middle East it is said that Arabs will not present their hand for henna if they are not speaking the truth. Henna is known as a symbol of good luck in countries such as Turkey, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia.
In Morocco, pregnant women have designs painted on their ankle to protect them through childbirth.
