We only use natural henna and ingredients in our paste.


What is Henna?

Henna is a natural dye prepared from the plant Lawsonia inermis, also known as the henna tree, the mignonette tree, and the Egyptian privet, the sole species of the genus Lawsonia. The leaves are crushed into a powdered and mixed with sugar, lemon juice, and lavender, cajeput, and bergamot essential oils. The henna paste stains the skin and usually lasts 7-10 days.


We only use natural henna and jagua. Orange Moon Art Studio is a PPD free zone.

Henna Aftercare

After the henna is applied, you should keep the paste on a minimum of 3 hours, but overnight would be best. The longer you wear the paste, the darker the stain will be. The stain matures over the next 48 hours. It starts orange and becomes darker over time. Continue to use lotion on the area after the paste is removed. Excessive water exposure will decrease the length of the stain, but it should last 7-10 days.

Other Important Information

Henna paste contains sugar, lemon juice, and essential oils. If you are allergic to either of these, please make your artist aware prior to application. Black henna is not henna. ‘Black henna’  contains PPD, a toxic chemical, most tourist destinations that do ‘black henna’ are actually using PPD laden paste. Natural henna ranges from oranges to browns in stain color, so anything that is black should be scrutinized. The only paste that should ever stain black is jagua, a natural staining fruit. Anyone who has a strawberry allergy should not use jagua.
