    Sometimes, You Just Want A Henna Tattoo

    Sometimes, You Just Want A Henna Tattoo

    Me, tooling around in my husband's giant Chevy pick-up

     

    I can’t draw. My company, Earth Henna, manufactures the Earth Henna tattoo kits, but I can’t draw. I wrote a book about henna titled Mehndi, The Art of Henna Body Painting, but I can’t draw. Isn’t that sad? So when I feel like getting a beautiful henna tattoo I am lucky to know lots of fabulous LA henna artists, whom I can call upon for body adornment, which is awesome. And often, when the mood for a henna tattoo hits me, I turn to the stencils that come in our Earth Henna temporary tattoo kits, which makes it really easy to create a cool design just by tracing over the stencil. Then I allow myself to get creative, adding little flourishes of my own as I go.

    But sometimes, I don’t want to schedule an appointment with an artist, and I really, really just want to pull out my applicator bottle and go to town, without worrying about how perfect the design will be. Still, I know my limitations! So that’s when I turn to my trusted “lines.” They’re not swirly, they’re not leading to something floral; they're not symmetrical, either, but they really appeal to me. So, I just go very slowly, and draw 3-5 lines around my wrist, trying to make them as equidistant as possible, without getting obsessive about it. My lines aren’t straight and they’re usually not even, but you know what? I always get tons of compliments on them. I guess there’s something a little tribal about them.

    My lines are simple and straightforward. Nothing fancy here—just a very satisfying answer to my recurring henna tattoo craving. Why am I telling you this? Just to inspire you to do your own thing! It doesn’t matter if it’s imperfect. Who cares? Perfection is for perfectionists, and they’re usually a little uptight. If you feel like a henna tattoo, forget about trying to compete with the great designs you see online. Do whatever inspires you. It's a lot of fun!

    Our henna kits are 15% off until April 21, with free shipping if you spend over $30. Use code: FESTIVAL15 and enjoy! (We called it festival 15 'cause it's festival season, and festival goers love henna tattoos, and buy lots of henna tattoo kits this time of year!)

    Coachella Dreamin’

    Coachella Dreamin’

    I’m drinking coconut water, I’m warm and sweaty, I’m smiling, I’m swaying to the music, hands up in the air. I turn around and look at my bestie. Her eyes are closed, huge smile plastered on her face, hips in perpetual motion. She is rocking out!

    We’re at Coachella, having the time of our lives. Being here is what we look forward to every year. The crazy cool musical lineup, the amazing electricity you feel as you interact with people, all of whom are sharing the same experience as you. Connecting with fellow human beings in a way that is so unlike day-to-day living back home. Every year you swear you’re going to recreate this beautiful energy everywhere you go. But hell, listening to your playlist as you drive around Los Angeles doesn’t come close to the kickass jolt you get from being in front of live performers. Or grooving on that endless parade of people in badass outfits, enhanced, for the most part, by gorgeous body art--henna tattoos, jagua tattoos, white henna tattoos, silver glitter tattoos, gold henna, silver henna, the list goes on!

    In fact, when my BFF opens her eyes, looks over at me and flashes me a peace sign, I laugh because she’s henna tattooed a peace sign on her palm, and her fingertips are all henna painted with hearts. She’s in love with Coachella! I choose to go with a fabulous jagua tattoo snaking up my arm—and I mean snaking! My design is a long, sexy snake, whose tail starts on the back of my hand, swirls around my arm and rests its head on my shoulder. Love it! On my other arm are a bunch of white henna flowers, sprinkled with silver glitter hearts. Everybody’s commenting on my beautiful body adornment. I’m stoked!

    And then my alarm goes off. Damn, I’m not at Coachella. I have to take my car to the shop, and then I need to go food shopping. Oh, well. But I’m happy all the same because I just realized that I haven’t missed it. Coachella’s coming right up on April 14, and that gives me enough time to get my act together—gather my Royaltats hair ornaments, my favorite jeans, skirts, and butterfly arm tops, and my temporary tattoo kits, so I can start practicing the designs I’m going to rock at Coachella!

    You can get your temporary tattoo kits at Earthhenna.com, where we're giving away 15% off on all kits and Beauty products until April 21, the last day you can order before Coachella! Spend $30 and get free shipping too! Use code: Festival15.

    See you at Coachella!

     

    Spring Flowers and Body Art

    Spring Flowers and Body Art

    You may be wondering what spring flowers have to do with body art, but over here at Earth Henna, we wait for spring more than most. Why? Because although we love the cool, brisk air of winter (I'd say something about those twinkly snowflakes, but we're out here in Los Angeles), and getting to wear heavy sweaters and boots, the truth of the matter is that it's when things start warming up that people begin thinking about showing some skin, and by extension, body adornment!

    It's not like no one cares about body art and temporary tattoos during winter--they do. We stay pretty busy around here during the winter months. But you don't have to be a psychic to know that once people start peeling off the layers, once the air warms up, and the days get longer, that's when folks seriously start imagining what henna designs or jagua designs or white henna and silver henna designs they might want to show off.

    I know all the girls in the office start talking about floral vines curling up around their arms and legs (like the one featured on our Earth Henna Classic Kit). So pretty!

    They also start thinking about festival season, what they'll be wearing, and how they'll be adorning their bodies. For this reason, we created the Festival Beauty Bundle, which comes with our Earth Henna Premium Kit, along with RoyalTats' groovy hair tattoos--flash tattoos that adorn your hair! 

    So if the spring equinox got you thinking about the longer, sunnier days to come; and about walks in nature, surrounded by gorgeous flowers, we're with you. (In Los Angeles right now, we are blessed with the magical and intoxicating scent of jasmines blooming everywhere!) That's why we got inspired to have our Spring Has Sprung Sale! Use Code: Spring 15. From now through March 28th, we're offering 15% off sitewide, along with Free Shipping over $30.

    Happy Spring!

    It's Official: Festival Season Is Here

    It's Official: Festival Season Is Here

    SXSW is already over and Coachella (4/14/17) and New Orleans Jazz Fest (4/28/17) are just around the corner. Oh my! What are you gonna do? What are you gonna wear? What will your body art look like? We think about these things, here at Earth Henna, because, of course, we've got the goods for people who want to stand out and sizzle at this year's music festivals.

    If you want to have the best designs, we can hook you up with our fabulous line of stencils. Choose your design, cut it off the stencil sheet, apply eucalyptus oil to your skin, place the stencil face down and hold it there for 30 seconds. Lift it off, and presto! The marking is now there for you to easily trace over with your henna or jagua. Check out the stencil we chose from the Earth Henna Premium Temporary Tattoo Kit and how the design came out.

     

    Not bad, eh? Especially for someone who can't draw, like me. 

    Since people also like to create their own designs, our White Lace/Silver Lace kit (aka White Henna/Silver Henna), comes with a sheet of patterns to give you ideas, like these:

    And then, of course, for those of you who want to go completely spectacular (and speak the truth to power, while you're at it--like me!), we can also hook you up with artists in your city (if we know someone there), who can use your kit to create really elaborate designs like this fantastic silver henna temporary tattoo!

    In case you hadn't figured it out yet, at Earth Henna, if your goal is to look beautiful and sport the most gorgeous body art in the world, we're here to serve you! Plus, at the moment, if you spend $30 or more, you get FREE SHIPPING! It's time to get your festival groove on, ladies.

     

    Best Henna For Hair Ever

    Best Henna For Hair Ever

    Every once in a while, we stop to remember that, before anyone ever used henna for temporary body art in this country, henna’s main job was dyeing hair! And there’s a reason why using henna for hair is so popular.

    Henna coats each hair shaft with a natural, semi-permanent protein called hennatannic acid. Heat causes the hennatannic acid to cling to the proteins found in the hair. Because henna coats and seals the hair shaft, it helps protect the hair from damaging effects of sun, salt, chlorine, wind and pollution in the environment. It can help miminize split ends and acts as "hair insurance," if you spend a lot of time in the sun, surf or wind. In addition to protecting the hair shaft, henna will tighten the hair cuticle and create a more solid surface which reflects light; the result is gleaming, lustrous hair. 

    Yeah! You can always tell when someone has used henna to dye their hair. The color is totally magical and lustrous like no other. That’s why we’ve been offering Light Mountain Natural Hair Color & Conditioner  for so many years. It is simply the best henna-based natural hair color and conditioner on the market.

    • There are no synthetic ingredients in the Light Mountain Natural® Hair Color & Conditioner formulation—only pure, premium henna and other botanicals.
    • Contains noPPD, no ammonia, no peroxide — no chemicals whatsoever.
    • Each batch is tested to ensure that it has no contaminants such as heavy metals or pesticides.
    • No animal testing was conducted by Light Mountain Natural® Hair Color & Conditioner or its suppliers in the manufacture of these products.

    PLUS, you have never seen such cute packaging as the one that Light Mountain Natural Hair Color & Conditioner came up with. Each color comes with a different “henna animal” on the package. Adorable! Makes you want to buy them just for the box alone.

    Totally safe, natural henna hair is yours for the asking. Now all you have to do is add a henna tattoo kit to your purchase to reach $30 and you get free shipping! You’re welcome!
