Nakita Baby Henna Services!

For years I have been very expressive in my art and talents. There is nothing I enjoy more than to create something original and special for a person and see their eyes light up and their hearts fill with joy and sheer pleasure of receiving a gift that is truly original, unique and specialized just for them. I started to explore the art of henna long ago and just fell in love with the idea of combining my love for giving original works of art with my love for the birthing process and motherhood. I have spent much time compiling many original designs and am now ready to share them with pregnant women everywhere!

For centuries the art of henna (or Mehndi) has been practiced in India, Africa, and the Middle East, where the henna plant is believed to bring love and good fortune, and to protect against evil. Mehndi is traditionally practiced for wedding ceremonies, during important rites of passage, and in times of joyous celebration. A paste made from the crushed leaves of the henna plant is applied to the skin, and when removed several hours later, leaves beautiful markings on the skin that fade naturally over 1 to 3 weeks. I was first introduced to henna and its original roots while serving in the U.S. Peace Corps in The Gambia, West Africa from 1997-2000. Practicing and learning from the best, where it is natural and at its true roots.

It is quite fitting that the good fortune and protection of henna be used in more recent years to celebrate and cherish this right of passage into motherhood. For many women there is a profound connection to the changes and journey that pregnancy carries us on. It is only appropriate to celebrate our every-changing bodies and the miracle of life we carry within us.

I am excited to connect with women and their special journeys, and I am likewise elated to be able to celebrate this with my special talent (with the art of mehndi).
