From the very beginning of my childhood, I love mehndi a lot. It is the best art of applying on our hands and feet. Due to my immense interest, I gathered information on my favorite Mehandi from many sites. In fact, this Mehandi is treated as a ritual in many auspicious occasions in all the parts of our country. Especially during wedding occasions, the celebration of a bridal wedding is nothing without Mehandi ceremony too. This kind of henna art to the bride looks extraordinary with bright red color.
I feel so lovely when going through traditional designs of mehndi are made in the bride’s hands. Of course, it is made essential too. Followed by my research on different websites, I also came to know about different patterns of henna in different styles are found in order to make the art looks very beautiful too. It includes floral patterns, line patterns, etc. This henna is typically grown in Africa, Australia, and some parts of Asia as well. This kind of herb is known as camphire. The bushes of this henna leaves are grown in almost dry and hot conditions too. These leaves of henna are used for hair conditioning purpose as well other than applying to hands by grinding it.
Literally, I concentrated on how its origination has been taken place. I come to know that it is Mughals those who propagated this Mehandi to our India during 12 century AD. Approximately around 5000 years ago we were using this art of Mehandi during our traditional occasions especially. I even noticed that on those days, beauticians, artists are solely responsible for designing fabulous crafts of Mehandi. Moreover, this word mehndi is derived from Sanskrit language namely mendhika.
Now coming into the depth of this Mehandi origination, it is mainly derived this art form from Egypt as we all know that henna relies on high medicinal values. I usually apply it for my hands, feet and also for my hair too. It gradually acts like a healing agent to all the age group. But according to research, I come to know that the existence of beautiful design patterns of applying Mehandi in India has been taken place during the 20th century only. In fact, many women used to implement this Mehndi until then.
But patterning of beautiful arts in its application on hands is emerged on later just. I even go through to identify what is the exact date and place of Mehandi origin takes place. I found no correct answer to it. Mainly all the people from different countries are using this Mehandi since many years ago in all the form of arts. In fact, the best example is I earlier stated that Mehandi is used not only for hands and feet but also for hair dye and conditioning purposes.
