Henna!

This was a long time ago but… Way back at the Great Cloth Diaper Change in April, I won a gift certificate for some Henna work by a local lady who not only does henna but is also a doula (and preggo ladies, she does henna bellies too)!

Sabrina Elliot does amazing work and is reasonably priced. She does the occasionally party as well. Henna is an all natural skin staining process. It has roots in Indian and Hindu cultures, but can also be a great way to treat yourself to something extra special.

Here you see the design immediately after it was done.
The paste stays on for several hours and can
have glitter added if you’ve got a special event to attend.

Here is the design immediately after the paste was
removed. It starts as an orange color and fades with time.

Here’s the design a day or two later as it turns a
dark brown. It stays for a week or two depending upon
how you care for the stain and how much you wash your hands.

Check Sabrina out on Facebook if you’re in the Abilene area and looking for something fun and beautiful to do!

I was not compensated in any way for this post or the links included in it.
