As an artist with a Bachelors in Fine Art degree,
I found no artistic medium made me light up like henna.
I started my path with the new age community in the 1980's in Art school, Omega Institute, started a yoga practice and shopped at local health food stores. I was into all things vintage and recycled, and fell in love with Krishna Das and chanting and Neem Karoli Baba. I even had the opportunity to record with him on several CD's.
I came across henna art in 1997. And while retreat with a Sufi/spiritual dance teacher, Zuleikah, she read the poem by Rumi that contained the lines..."Follow That which Has the Sweetest Perfume"....sooooo I kept those things I truly loved in my life and one of them was henna.
Before it was a thing I had a henna booth at craft fairs and festivals, I would have to educate people what henna was. I did years of library programs, wrote a book and ran a round to parties every weekend doing henna from local kids to
NYC celebrity events.
I opened a shop in 2008 after popular demand from clients
for a shop location. Well it turned into a henna lounge loaded with clients seeking henna art and designs and though the trend has faded, the expanding crystal inventory was slowly taking over as I was morphing into a crystal attic....and that part of the shop moved to the forefront, and after lockdown, so many people started seeking out crystals that I took out the henna lounge area and had to let it go to crystals, crystal jewelry and tarot decks and sage demand!
I noticed along time ago, people smile and brighten up after they get a henna tattoo...and so...we still offer it but at our new Oyster Bay location...we have more space to sit down, and supplies there as well.
