Henna Paste: How to Prepare At Home

Want to apply Henna at home? But, have run of out Henna? No worry, now you can make Henna paste at home, in very few simple steps.

How to Prepare Henna Paste at Home

To make Henna paste you can either buy henna powder from the market or you can dry henna leaves in the shade for making your own henna powder. Drying henna leaves is a long and tedious process, and it may take weeks to dry and get crisp. If you aren’t too particular about making your own henna powder you can simply buy a quality henna powder. But be careful of the cheap ones available in the market – they have chemicals which leave harmful side-effects on your skin.

Ingredients you will need to create your own Henna Paste at home:

  1. Well sieved henna powder – Use a muslin cloth to sieve the henna powder. Ensure no residue is left as it can block the Henna cone later.
  2. Well strained strong tea decoction.
  3. Add few drops of eucalyptus oil.
  4. Also add some strained lime juice.
  5. For better results add 1-2 table spoon of sugar.

Put the henna powder in a bowl, and add the tea till it becomes a thick paste (similar to a dough). Add the eucalyptus oil, sugar and lime juice and mix well to make it into a smooth and thin paste. Keep it covered over night or during the day – preferably for over 10-12 hours.
