is available every where. Some times this mixed up with chemicals. This can cases adverse skin reactions so please be conscious. I am not talking about all Mehandi cons that is dangerous !! But there is some companies making like this.
Some times only this Mehandi that makes allergic reactions. This not for all, some humans skin is very sensitive to this chemicals. This time Mehandi can cause burns or allergic reaction on the skin.

How to avoid this

– Use Quality Products
– Before applying all over test in a small area on the body.
– Use natural products ( make from the home )
– don’t mix Mehandi with any other colouring materials.
– If after mehendi that cause itching or burning sensation,, remove the Mehandi with cold water and visit your doctor as early as possible.

Mehndi dermatitis cases are on the rise, said Rohit Batra, dermatologist at Sir Gangaram Hospital.

“We are getting 8 to 10 patients every day with serious side effects after applying mehndi on their hands,” he added.

He advised girls and women not to use chemical-laced mehndi as it causes irritation and leaves scratch marks, which can have a life-long impact on the skin.

He added that mehndi agents do not use plain henna but add harsh chemicals to make it darker.

Skin infections due to mehndi cause swelling, itching and redness. Batra said that as soon as people notice such symptoms, they should visit a doctor to avoid any serious consequences.

“At the initial stages, mehndi can cause acute dermatitis if one does not see doctor immediately and the allergy can spread all over the body,” Batra added.

Sachin Dhawan, dermatologist at the Skin and Smile Clinic in Gurgaon, said that mehndi can even cause cancer.

“Over the years, skin infection due to mehndi has increased. It is better to use natural or plain henna instead of the synthetic one. Synthetic mehndi can leave permanent marks on the skin, and can even cause cancer,” Dhawan told IANS.

He added that as a precaution, one should buy only good quality mehndi and not apply it repeatedly.


Mixture of hoax and facts.


The message comes as a warning not to use ‘Party Mehndi Red Cone,’ describing an incident in Pakistan that led to the death of a girl who applied it during her wedding ceremony. The message appears to come from an MBBS doctor Imran Ansari of the Aga Khan University Hospital in Pakistan. The claims are mixture of hoax and facts.


Given below is a basic henna paste recipe, you can try it out and add to it to suit your needs. To make henna paste or mehendi

Boiling water – 1 cup

Black tea or coffee – 2 tbsp

Sifted henna powder (make sure you sift the powder before making a paste) – 3 tbsp

Eucalyptus oil – 1 tsp


Boil the water and add the tea or coffee powder and make a mixture. Let this mixture soak for a few hours. Strain the mixture to remove any particles of tea or coffee. Place the henna powder into a plastic or glass bowl and add eucalyptus(safaida ka arq) oil. Now slowly add the tea/coffee mixture a little at a time and stir the mixture. Use the spoon to press the powder and water together.Make a smooth paste of the henna powder. Allow the paste to stand for 6 to 12 hours. The longer you allow the paste to stand the smoother the mixture will become. Now apply this paste in any design you want and wait till the mehndi is dry, but not cracking. Take a cotton ball and dab a little lemon-sugar glaze to keep the henna moist. Keep the henna on for as long as you want.

After you remove the henna paste design from your skin, try not to wet the area for as long as possible. It is best to leave henna overnight. Using lemon-sugar glaze will ensure that themehndi stays overnight.


In strained juice of ½ lemon add 1 tsp of sugar, mix well.
