Organic Henna Powder

Henna is a dye prepared from the plant Lawsonia inermis, also known as the henna tree, the mignonette tree, and the Egyptian privet, the sole species of the genus Lawsonia.

Henna is a bright green powder that mixes into a thick greenish-brown paste with the addition of hot water.  We offer the highest quality, GOTS certified, organic henna powder.

Henna is often used in North Africa to create organic indigo vats.  It serves the same function as fructose and creates a very rich and deep blue shade that lasts and lasts.  We like to use henna to create our indigo stock solution and then rebalance the vat with fructose.

From our Feedback Friday series:

I keep hearing from friends that I should use henna to deepen my indigo. Does it really make indigo a deeper blue?

Henna is often used in North Africa to create organic indigo vats.  It serves the same function as fructose and in our experience, creates a very rich and deep blue shade that lasts and lasts. For best results, we create our stock solution, substituting henna for fructose, then let the solution and vat ripen for a day or two.  We find that ripening seems to create a very rich and deep shade.  If you don’t have much time, heating the vat gently will also help speed up the reaction among the ingredients. We like to use henna to create our indigo stock solution and then rebalance the vat with fructose.
