    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!

    White Henna, Anyone?

    White Henna, Anyone?

    The ongoing joke around here at Earth Henna is about how for 11 years, we had the smallest product line in the history of commerce: one product! Yes, we came up with variations on our Earth Henna Temporary Tattoo Kit—let’s see, there’s the Premium Henna Tattoo Kit; the Classic Henna Tattoo Kit; the Mehndi Book & Kit Set; the Henna Kit for Kids; and the Earth Henna Refill Kit. Still, those are all henna kits!

    Then came the Earth Jagua Black Temporary Tattoo Kit in 2009. To that original jagua kit, we added the Premium Jagua kit and the Jagua Refill Kit. Hey, we were moving up there in the world with not one, but two products. Woo hoo!

    And now—wait for it—comes our 3rd product! Are you impressed? We are! Last week, we formally introduced our “white henna” temporary tattoo kit, or as it’s known in our office, and on the package: the White Lace Temporary Tatoo Kit. It also has two other names: White Lace/Silver Lace Temporary Tattoo Kit and White Lace/Gold Lace Temporary Tattoo Kit. Are you confused yet? Here’s the deal:

    Although everyone in the world calls this hot, new form of temporary body art “white henna,” by now I’m sure you know there’s no such thing as white henna. The henna plant stains the skin a dark reddish brown, right? Right.

    The reason everyone calls it “white henna” is because designs created with this product—which is a mix of white body paint and medical grade adhesive—typically look just like good old, traditional henna tattoos. But in this case, the skin is not stained white. The design sits on top of the skin, is set with a sprinkle of corn starch, and presto, in five minutes, your design is done! Bye bye. have a good time!

    These designs, which last 1-5 days on the skin, depending on where they are on the body, are perfect for parties, weddings, music festivals, and any other special event where you want to stand out.

    Now, about this silver and gold business. We currently have two White Lace Temporary Tattoo Kits. A White Lace/Silver Lace Kit, and a White Lace/Gold Lace kit. The White Lace/Silver Lace Kit comes with corn starch (for setting white designs) and silver glitter (which you use instead of corn starch, if you want a sparkly look. They’re totally gorgeous, either way, but this gives you options!

    Our White Lace/Gold Lace kit, which comes with corn starch and gold glitter for you golden shimmery types, are available exclusively on our website and exclusively  at Urban Outfitters in March in their stores and on their website.

    Henna Tattoo Kits, Jagua Tattoo Kits and White Lace kits. 3 products! We’ve hit the big time!
