Mehandi is something we girls simply adore! It is quite impossible to picture an Indian wedding without Mehndi clad hands and feet. Mehndi is not just loved for its beauty; it is an important part of the whole ritual and is believed to bring fortune.

Mehndi used in India is derived from mehndi plant. The stems and leaves of the plant are dried and grounded into powder. This powder is mixed with water into a thick paste and then filled in a conical shaped applicator. The sharp end of the applicator is then used to draw designs on the hands.

Usually in India, the traditional mehndi is used but now a days, you can also find red mehndi as well as black mehendi being used. Black mehndi is very popular in Arabic mehndi designs for hands or feet and now is being used to draw borders of the designs to make them prominent.
