People discovered and used the henna plant in many different places across its growth range, and in each place they developed different traditions and practices according to their needs and beliefs. The history and origin of Henna is hard to trace with centuries of migration and cultural interaction it is difficult to determine where particular traditions began. There is very persuasive evidence that the Neolithic people in Catal Huyuk, in the 7th millennium BC, used henna to ornament their hands in connection with their fertility goddess. The most popular traditional use is tied closely with weddings and bridal preparation. Henna today, in non-traditional American & European pop-culture, is practiced by men and women alike. Mainstream America remains fascinated with body adornment and beauty practices from other cultures. Henna decorating will survive in traditional uses within specific ethnic cultures and within various communities in the United States. The richly beautiful art of henna knows no boundaries in culture, ethnicity, gender, religious or spiritual beliefs. In its many forms, henna decorating is truly a gift of beauty, touch and trust.
