Paint the Body Beautiful

Happy Henna Holidays!

Christmas ornament: festive hands

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I am going to repeat the suggestion I made back around Thanksgiving, which was oh, so long ago! I was talking about the holidays, and how they usually mean spending time with family. Family, along with the lighting of candles and twinkling lights and gift exchanges, is part and parcel of all upcoming holiday celebrations, regardless of the religion: Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Bohdi Day (for Buddhists), and Mawlid (for Muslims). And hanging out with family can be the most wonderful part of the deal—or the most stressful.

That’s why I recommend bringing along a henna tattoo kit to your holiday celebration. If it’s a wonderful, warm, and cozy affair, I suggest you whip out your Earth Henna tattoo kit and offer to paint everybody up with gorgeous temporary tattoos. They will totally love you for it, and you will have capped off a glorious day by adorning the entire clan with beautiful henna designs.

On the other hand, it might be stressful because you think President Trump is a reincarnation of Hans Trapp (the rich, greedy, evil anti-Santa, who eats children and worships Satan), while a good many of your family members think he’s the real Santa, who makes everyone’s dreams come true by hanging out with flying reindeer, landing on rooftops, sliding down chimneys with kickass gifts in tow, and not scaring anybody! Sorry, but you’re never going to agree to disagree—not on this subject. Somehow, parties on all sides of this debate tend to feel that agreeing to disagree seems downright wrong and a little too giving. That’s when you should whip out your henna kit!

No more talking needed. Just ask everyone to stop shouting, and say (with a smile on your face): Who would like a henna tattoo? I promise, you will get their attention. All that shouting will be drowned out by the clamor of Me! Me! Me! Plus, as you probably know, a henna application is tantamount to getting a massage because of the henna plant’s amazing medicinal properties, which include soothing down the nervous system.

As I write this, I am having an epiphany: I am sitting on a really nice inventory of Earth Henna kits! All I have to do is send a few thousand of them to the White House so that the president’s aides can set about painting their boss’s entire body with henna. I can guarantee you that one of the first results would be nicer, kinder, and less neurologically inflamed tweets. Ah, the magical powers perched on my fingertips!

It’s no joke. Holidays go better with henna. Your family will thank you. You can get your kit before Christmas if you order before 9:00 a.m. on Thursday the 21st at If you’re too late, don’t worry. New Year’s day is coming fast on the heels of Christmas and all the other holidays. And you can use a henna kit on the first day of 2018 too. In fact, I recommend it.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Earth Henna!
