Henna is widely used leaf extract for skin staining in India. It hold strategic in various Indian culture and religions. India is one large consumer of henna for various uses and especially for skin staining or impressions. Henna is a natural ingredient used for body art. Whole henna leaves would in no way stain the skin. Henna itself would also not leave marks or stain the skin until lawsone molecules are released from the leaves. There is an acidic liquid needed with which henna leaves are mashed in order for it to stain the skin. Henna powder is mixed with acidic liquids and made into a paste which is applied to make body art. The paste cannot be used immediately after it has been made. It needs up to 24 hours for it to settle and actually work for body art. Tea tree, lavender and Eucalyptus are a few essential oils that help in better staining of the skin with henna. There have been many traditional and innovative tools from which the henna paste is applied on to the skin to make patterns and designs. Cone, syringe, Jac bottle and even figures are used for applying henna and staining skin. The intensity and darkness of the stain would be in relevance to the time the henna paste stayed on to the skin. The longer the paste is left on the skin the darker would be the stain, leaving a very deep color.
