Melissa's intrest for henna was sparked as a young girl in the 90's.  While she spent much time drawing designs on her hands with pens and markers, she discovered henna.  She saw the lovely henna on Gewn Stephanie and Madonna and knew she wanted to learn how to do that.  At the time, there was not much information online about henna.  She made her first batch from henna powder bought at an indian food store mixed with lemon juice and tea.  Her applicator was just a ziplock bag with the tip cut of.  An henna artist journey of perfecting their paste is never ending.  Now, her paste includes 100% triple sifted henna powder, organic sugar(sometimes molasses), and a blend of essential oils.  She had rolls mylar cones for application.  

There is no henna challenge that Melissa will not take on.  Bridal being her biggest honor to do.
