Mehandi – My Love! My First Love Rather, has been slowly phased out of the Indian Woman’s life because of work load, less time, more and more cosmetics and less time for organic beautifier and dehumidifiers. My Love will never reduce for this eternal creation of God!
In my daily routine I rarely use Mehandi, but during festive seasons this is my first thing to be done while I put on that gorgeous lehenga my Hubby gave me, I would essentially want to wear that off with not too much OTT and a little bit of Mehandi on me 😀 I primarily love Arabic Mehandi Designs because of their simplistic yet colorful nature.
Arabic Mehandi Designs
The reason they are called Arabic Mehandi Designs is because of it origination roots and popularity in countries like Pakistan, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi & UAE (Basically the thing called ARABS 🙂 ).
This one is the one favourite Arabic Mehandi Designs which despite it’s simple look & application is the most widely loved and used. These designs typically wore on occasions like distant relatives wedding and all in the countries where Mehandi is worn.
Typically you would find Arabic Mehandi designs as the no fuss fuss and low time required for application on both the hands and thus these are the clear favourite amongst women when they lack time in their fast paced life. The design is simplistic and does not require too much filling and that flowers and leaves and stem (basically too much open design) can essentially give rise to the beautiful design on your hands.

If you, like me, belong to those kinda girls who loves mehandi like food and that is too much for your fiancé and he is Zero fond of the fragrance, then there is no reason for you to not do it. You can simply draw out lines in the form of basic shapes of designs and not fill it with color which avoids the smell to your partner. (Refer Dia Mirza’s Design in the pic below)
Scientific Reason behind using Mehandi on the Wedding night is that it cools the body temperature of the bride and gives a soothing fragrance to her as well. Keeping the body temperature down after a full day of hectic functions is of high importance as it maintains good health to the bride.
India by far is the best destination to buy henna and mehandi which is available at every general store so that you dont have to fret over where to get your favourite gig at the time of the wedding of your bestie. You get a lot of variety in price, quantity combo, but I would suggest always go for the organic one rather than colored one because it can harm your hand skin as well as cause rashes.
Arabic Mehandi designs eventually graduate into rings and circles or randomly drawn circular or elliptical shapes so that the flow continues on the design and can be completed in least possible draws. The arabic counterparts of mehandi designs are somewhat similar to the the Pakistani mehandi designs that come across with large circular concentric circles so that the design gives breadth to the designer to draw on.
