In reply to: Looking for any info regarding henna and pagan rituals posted by whitney on October 2, 2002 at 15:00:39:: I'm looking for sources to learn about current and historical pagan
: use of henna (priestesses, in temples, for religious rites, etc).
Email me. I'm working towards my PhD on henna history and traditions,
and have taught and done henna at pagan gatherings for 13 years
(neo-paganism doesn't have much to do with henna ... but ... it's
eclectic as all getout). I'll need you to clarify your notion of the
word "pagan" .... Other than that, I can give you information on
henna use prior to 1000 BCE, which I believe is what you're looking for.
You might consider purchasing the paper linked below: the information
there is pertinent.
