Mehendi is derived from the Sanskrit word mendhikā, while henna owes its origin to the Arabic name for Lawsonia inermis, Hina. The leaves of the henna plant contain a red-orange molecule, lawsone, which when applied, stains the skin, hair and nails temporarily. Mehendi is an integral part of weddings. There are full hand mehendi designs, arabic design, backhand, leg mehendi design and more.
Traditional mehendi designs were just dots and finger caps applied just like bharatnam dancers, which later evolved into simple floral designs and further evolved into much intricate and complicated designs which made the hands look very beautiful. Eversince, mehendi designs have become an integral part of weddings.
