This year I am going to a Halloween party for the first time in many years. Anyone who knows me I like pretty and pink so my costume put together by my daughters partly and a shirt from TobeaPirate.com is kind of a gypsy pirate look. While at the Nurturing Ourselves Conference I met the most delightful woman Larissa of Dragon Designs Henna who does the most beautiful henna tattoos. Considering my blouse is off the shoulder I thought a tattoo would be the ideal finish to my costume. Henna is all natural, stains the skin and gradually fades away. Larissa came to my home, we enjoyed chatting while she applied the design. After it dried she covered it with tape and I left it on overnight. This morning when I peeled it off carefully I had a subtle delicate flower scroll across my shoulder, very fun.
Henna is probably the oldest art form known to man. The intricate and subtle designs, the adornment has a spiritual significance being used to adorn brides, mothers to be and for many celebrations in life. Having been practised for thousands of years in many cultures, there has been a surge of interest in the last few years in the western world. For those wishing to celebrate and connect with the spiritual significance of memorable life events the gentleness of Henna, the color of the earth and nature worked in beautiful designs is an ideal way to celebrate! Thank you Larissa!
