Henna, originating from the Lawsonia inermis plant, has a vibrant history spanning ancient civilizations. It began in Egypt, where it adorned mummies and held cultural and ritual significance. This tradition flowed into the Middle East, Asia, and North Africa. The intricate mehndi designs in South Asia and the cooling properties of henna in North Africa and the Middle East became synonymous with celebrations. Henna's dye, lawsone, found in its leaves, creates a distinctive reddish-brown color, symbolizing joy, luck, and blessings. Today, henna patterns continue to evoke a celebratory ambiance, connecting modern festivities with age-old traditions.
