Mehendi or Henna has adorned the hands and feet of women for ages. Initially, even men applied it, but as time passed the trend decreased. In some communities men apply it as a symbol of auspiciousness on important occasions like weddings.
Mehendi is very popular in the Arab countries as well and has served as a symbol of good luck, health and prosperity. Therefore, henna on hands is a perfect beginning for any festive and happy occasion.
Besides its aesthetic value, Henna also has healing qualities. It is used for treating headaches, stomach pains, burns, open wounds and also prevents hair loss. It is also used as a sun block on animals to prevent sunburn.
Mehendi is a must on a bride’s hands and feet, and there are several beliefs associated with it;
- The darker the color of mehendi on the bride’s hands, the deeper will be the love of groom for his bride.
- The henna color also depicts the love and understanding between the bride and her mother-in-law.
- The longer the mehendi retains its color, the more auspicious it is for the newly weds.
- Mehendi is also deemed to be a symbolic representation of fertility.
Traditional designs of mehendi were aimed to ward off evil and increase prosperity and fertility. Nowadays, the trend is a lot fancier with new variants of mehendi application. Ladies have plenty of options to choose from, like Arabic mehendi, jewel studded mehendi, mehendi with Swarovski etc.
