Vibrant Mehndi Cold Process

Have you ever heard of mendi?  It is a henna body art that is a very popular tradition in India.  Henna, or mendhi, is a paste of crushed leaves and twigs from the henna plant.  When the paste is applied to the skin, it leaves a beautiful stain behind.  The tradition is often used to celebrate a happy occasion or special day.  Would you believe that you can recreate mendhi's intricate details and gorgeous designs on cold process soap?  Yes, you can!  The Soap Queen recently posted a tutorial called Vibrant Mehndi Cold Process on her site.   Now, this is project is for the more advanced soap maker and it takes 2-3 hours to complete but remember allow time for curing.
