Hennaed Hands


Henna done by myself on my own hands. It' was not easy to do mehndi on my own hand because I couldn't get the full angle up front to create the best lines and curves. Especially with half shaky hands that I had. But I tried my best.

Ps* The Henna paste was also made by me. I made two different recipes to see the differences of the stain. The results are visible in the pictures. Adding coffee with cardamom makes stain really dark and adding tea makes it more reddish. Offcourse I added pure essential oil. Two recipes of mehndi include two different measurements of 'cajuput pure essential oil'.

Both hennaed hands were left overnight and taken off with oil next morning. I messed up some designs in my sleep by the way =(
