Mehndi is a henna paste that is typically applied to the hands and feet of women before a special event, such as a wedding. It is a custom practiced in India, Pakistan, Persia, and other Middle-Eastern countries. In some areas, men also adorn their bodies with mehndi but this is not common. The red color that appears in the hours or days after application signifies shakti, or the essential divine feminine energy.
