Little Fiddly Bits

The center of henna production in the world is located in the Rajasthan region of north western India. The plant fibers will not stain without the help of a mild solution of lemon juice or other acid (soaked overnight) that chemically reacts with ground leaves to release the dye. Henna tattoos start out with an orange color that changes over the course of three days to a darker, red-brown color which can last about fourteen days, typically. Natural henna does not pose a health risk, but be careful with the impurities found in some pre-mixed henna products.
