We only offer body art quality henna (BAQ) with absolutely no additives. All of our henna powders are safe for both skin and hair use.
Below are some of the henna varieties we offer, though not everything is necessarily available at any given time. ORa henna and Jamila henna are our standard hennas and are normally always available. If they are occasionally out of stock, they are normally back in stock within 30 days.
Henna is a crop, and as such, availability and quality can differ based on the specific crop year. We are constantly sampling and testing different types of henna, and offer the best available options.
Henna Crop YearBAQ henna is harvested once a year.
Properly stored, unopened powder henna can last more than 3 years. If you find a crop year you really like, buy extra!
- Pakistani henna (Jamila) is generally available near the end of summer.
- Indian (ORa) henna is generally available in the late fall/early winter.

Ready Made Henna Paste
If it were my choice, everyone would mix their own henna from our fresh powder. The best possible color can be obtained from mixing your own paste, and you can control the texture for your personal preferences.
Despite that, I understand mixing your own henna is not practical for everyone, so I have worked hard to bring you a quality ready made henna paste.
Our ready made henna paste is made especially for us and is flash frozen, then shipped express to us. As soon as it arrives to us, it’s checked for quality and stored in our in-house freezers. We put serious effort into offering a ready-to-use henna paste that is as fresh as possible, while still containing all natural ingredients and absolutely NO harmful chemicals.Beachcombers' Henna Paste Ingredients
