Re: Henna and pregnancy

Another Jen in Canada here..! As for your question about pregnancy &
henna, if you talk to the artist before the paste is mixed up, they
can mix it with only lemon juice (and sugar if you like). That is
all that is needed for a good stain if the henna is a decent quality,
and then there are no extras in the paste to worry about.
The henna itself is pretty much as safe as you can get, I won't say
100%, because nothing is perfect, but usually if there's a problem
with skin rashes or other effects, it's from stuff added to the
henna, not the henna itself. I have henna'd pregnant bellies and
just made sure that there are minimal or no extras in the paste, only
lemon juice & sugar.
Congratulations & enjoy!
