Henna as Shakti Prasadam

I am a henna artist with 20 years of experience. I prepare my henna as an offering to Shakti, the Divine Feminine principle with ritual and intention for the liberation of all sisters. My henna is mixed with Manjishta, an Ayurvedic blood purifying herb, especially dear to women and it listens to mantras of the Goddesses as it cures. The henna is Shakti prasadam, the blessed leftovers of my offering to the Goddess in all Her manifestations.
