How to Mix Organic Rajasthani Henna Powder for Body Art

1. Measuring the henna powder.

Take 2 tbsp of henna powder (about 25 grams of henna) and place it into a glass or stainless steel bowl. Add 1 tsp of sugar of your choice and mix well.

2. Adding the lemon juice/water/tea brew.

Heat your liquid (about 1/4 cup) on the stove and add it slowly to your henna powder. Mix well until it is the consistency of a thick yoghurt.

3. Adding essential oil.

Then add 1 tsp of your essential oil. Mix well.

4. Too much liquid?

If you add too much liquid add a little more henna powder to adjust.

You can cover your henna paste and allow to sit for 3-4 hours but I don’t. I mix my henna recipe and sometimes let it sit an hour to rest. I then take the henna paste I’ve made and cone it all up or place into carrot bags for storage. I place cones and carrots bags into the freezer and use when as needed when I’m ready to do so. The frozen paste will thaw naturally at room temperature. I am a true believer that freezing your henna paste for body art (and even for hair use) gives it a really nice boost in color.

5. Testing the paste.

Should you decide that you want to use your henna paste that same day then after it has sat 3-4 hours you can test the paste out. It might need retesting every hour thereafter if you’re not seeing the recommended results. Test your henna paste by placing a bit of paste onto your palm and let it sit for at least 1 minute. Remove the paste by washing off and if you have a bright pumpkin orange stain that indicates that it’s ready to be used.

6. More liquid?

Your henna paste when it’s ready to be used, should be a consistency of thick toothpaste (see below photo). If it’s feeling too thick for you adjust by slowly adding more of your liquid.

For more information on henna body art aftercare, applications methods and how to articles please visit our blog at When using any new hair product it’s always recommended that you do a hair strand tests or a skin patch test first. Even natural products can cause allergic reactions. Test before use. Keep yourself updated on free recipes, products, and sales on social media platforms @ HennaSooqCanada (#HennaSooqCanada) or at Important: Please keep in mind that your hair is as individual and unique as you are. Henna and Ayurvedic treatments can be drying for some.

It’s recommended that you add our aloe vera powder or one of our hair oils to your recipe and/or deep condition your hair afterwards. We recommend that all of our clients try varying recipes based on their individual hair needs and focus. Use the recipe that works best for your hair! Further instructions can be found on every product page. 

Total amount of powder you should use:

Above ear length: 50-75 grams

Shoulder length: 100-125 grams

Bra strap or mid-back length: 150-175 grams

Lower back length (above hips): 200 to 225 grams

Hip/Waist length: 250 to 300 grams

Recommended Liquids:

• Water

• Apple Cider Vinegar

• Green Tea

• Note: For coloring treatments do not use heavy liquids such as yoghurt, shea/cocoa butters, conditioners, etc…as they dilute the color and won’t yield best color coverage.

How to mix and use our Organic Rajasthani Indian Henna for hair:

1. Mix henna with one or more of our recommended liquids.

2. Allow the paste to sit for dye release for 3-4 hours

3. Add enough liquid to make a paste into the consistency of pancake batter. Measurements aren’t always going to be exact, as each batch of henna can absorb varying amounts of liquid each time.

4. After dye release has been achieved, apply the henna paste to damp or dry hair in sections starting from the front and moving towards the back. Make sure to wear gloves when applying henna, as it will stain your hands.

5. Wrap your hair and allow henna to stay in hair from 3-4 hours.

6. Rinse, shampoo or co-wash the paste out, according to what works best for your hair.

Your hair’s color will settle over the next 2 days.

Crop 2022 - Expiry Dec 2024

Dye release is 3-4 hours for hair use, and 10-12 hours for body art use.

Savannah's hair regimen and recipe:

"I’ve been using henna to dye my hair for a little over a year now and I love it! I used to bleach my hair blonde for years and have had every color of hair under the sun…needless to say my hair was fried, and badly damaged. I tried every product in the store to try to restore my hair and nothing worked, until I did some research online and stumbled upon henna. I was a bit skeptical at first, after all, I tried every salon product out there and nothing worked well, so how will a little plant help? Boy was I surprised! I bought henna, indigo and amla powders online, mixed them together and after many hours and quite a mess, my hair looked gorgeous! I’ve been using henna for over a year now to dye my hair a perfect shade of auburn brown.

My recipe is as follows…

200g of henna powder 100g of Indigo powder 50 g of Amla powder

I mix up the henna with lemon juice the night before I want to dye my hair, let it sit overnight, then I mix the indigo and amla powders with warm water and add them to my henna mix. Let it sit on my hair for 3-4 hours, rinse and voila!

I love the way my hair looks and how fast it grows now. I’m always getting compliments from people about how nice and shiny my hair is. I will never go back to commercial hair dyes again."

    amazing henna!

    Posted by Sharon Courtney on 28th Dec 2020

    Lovely tone and texture, definitely worth the wait! I'll be purchasing this again, I was previously using Lush which is messy, difficult and mostly cocoa butter. This is far superior quality!

    2020 batch

    Posted by Asma on 14th Dec 2020

    I was a bit disappointed in Moroccan henna 2020 batch, as my hair is v fine in texture.. Researched Khadijah's advice online (the CEO of this company herself) written in the past, and tried this one. I looked on LonghaircareForums (Khadijah had lots of valuable posts from the past there) and she had explained how to sift, and how we can squeeze henna paste through a cheap, clean, seamless stocking to get the finest version!! What a fab tip!! But I didn't even need to do that with this! I will if I buy MOROCCAN again (She wrote on the Longhaircareforum that Moroccan is not as fine a sift as Jamila and Rajasthani, but still fine of course)- if you have really fragile hair like mine you would do better to buy this one- I sifted it several times thru a fine sieve and IT ALL PASSED THROUGH!! And mixed superbly! It took almost no time to mix!! I love it!! OKAY I learned this so this might save someone else the errors I made: if you have made henna paste and forgot to sieve prior, you could figure out how fine a sift it is from how easily it mixes. If it isn't the easiest to mix through (a tad lumpy) THEN you can USE THE STOCKING METHOD that Khadijah herself mentioned (in the forum post!)!! That's what I should have done with the 2020 batch of Moroccan!!! omg PLEASE post something like this in the description, so OTHER CUSTOMERS know too, AND the difference between pre-covid19 is explained in an easy place to find it, so they are not surprised and know how to make it work best for them!!! Thanks so much Henna Sooq! Amazingly fast shipping too!!

    worked well

    Posted by Unknown on 14th Jan 2018

    Worked well to cover the greys. Great natural alternative to dying with chemicals but is a lengthy process of course. Will repurchase. PS I found using quarter of the bag was enough for shoulder length hair so it should last a while.

    Customer service is great, and their henna is too.

    Posted by Jodie G on 6th Jan 2018

    I had ordered this, but was given Red Raj instead. A quick email through the customer service links and I was able to exchange without any problems, and both orders (the original, and the replacement) arrived quickly. I did find that for the best colour, letting it sit overnight (8-12hrs) for optimal dye release gives a slightly deeper colour. 4hr dye release seems to give a redder, more coppery colour. The powder was very fine, and easy to mix, and I had no trouble at all rinsing it out of my hair. Will definitely be ordering again. I'd like to experiment with some indigo and hibiscus next time!
