Henna, A History

henna has a long and beautiful history, heavily grounded in many different cultures, religions, and people. Henna used to be used medicinally many years before it was used as an art form or to beautify. Henna used to be part of a regular hygiene routine. Henna used to be used as a sunscreen on people and their animals. People have been using henna for thousands of years, and maybe not in the ways you’d have thought. In fact, using henna in the way we do today to beautify our skin is relatively recent in its history.
