The Henna Café is proud to employ local artist or “Naquasha” highly experienced in the art of henna. We use only safe, locally produced, all natural red henna.
You may come prepared with your own design, or choose one from our collection of extensive catalogues. All our designs are original and have been donated by top henna artists from around the world. Our prices are fixed, so there is no surprise when your design is finished. Small designs start at 50 dirham and the most intricate cost 500 dirham.
You will leave with printed aftercare instructions (also available on this website) and a protective glove for your hand or foot to ensure you’re design lasts as long as possible. Although henna is best applied to your hand or foot, you may choose to apply henna on any part of your body, such as your shoulder or back.
We guarantee high quality henna and an authentic experience!
If you are aware that you have a sensitivity to citrus or aroma therapeutic oils, we do not advise the applications of henna. If you have been advised by a doctor that you have an allergy to aspirin, fava beans, or mothballs, you should not have henna applied. Henna is generally a very safe and natural practice which has been used for thousands of years. We offer these guidelines to ensure responsible henna adornment.
These photos were taken at our annual Henna masterclass taught by henna legends Riffat Bahar and Nic Tharpa Cartier.
We invited ladies from the local community to attend. They learned how to mix and use natural henna paste.
It was a wonderful day and fun was had by all! Thank you to the generosity of Nic and Riffat.
The earliest written evidence of the use of henna is from the early bronze age.
The goddess Anath protected the fertility of the earth and the harvest. In the myth cycle of Baal and Anath ( early bronze age 3300 -2100 BC ), Anath adorned herself with henna.
