Natural henna is a beautiful way to celebrate your body before you give birth. We make our own henna paste from certified organic henna leaves, water, raw cane sugar, and pure steam-distilled essential oils. We recommend adorning your belly during the 8th month and onward. For best results, the henna is applied to completely clean skin. Leave the paste on for 8-12 hours (or overnight) and avoid water for an additional 12-24 hours. If you’re planning a photoshoot, the henna should be applied 3 days prior to the shoot.
