Crimson Artists mainly purchase their henna powder from two of these suppliers, but we know of and trust all of these sources:
Henna Guru (aka Henna Lounge) offers henna for body art as well as BAQ hair care, and lots of other lovely supplies including essential oils, mylar, applicators, and even Moroccan stencils!
Henna Caravan, also the hostesses of Henna Con, have an amazing selection of glitters, essential oils, fresh henna paste and powder, natural hair care, and fabulous design books available as ebooks or festival ready laminated sheets.
Henna Muse offers several varieties of henna, kits, essential oils, applicators, and natural personal hair and body care products including herbs, oils, shampoo bars and more. Make sure to check out the swarovski crystal bindis too!
Heartfire Henna is a Northeastern purveyor of Organic Rajasthani Henna, henna kits of all sizes, essential oils, and other supplies.
Henna Oasis supplies quality product and is based in Australia. You'll find powder, premixed paste, essential oils, all the tools you'll need as well as natural hair color products.
Dragonfly Henna is a henna supplier in Canada! Jamila henna powder, fresh paste, essential oils, starter kits, and some very handy tools like water color pencils, applicators and micropore tape.
Manali Henna is a New Zealand henna supplier and co-ordinator of the Henna Hui held in mid-January. You'll find henna powders for body art, a range of hair colouring supplies, fresh henna paste, kits, essential oils, applicators, and glitter body art supplies.
Hennacat is a UK based supplier of carefully sourced henna powders, other herbals and design books as well as fresh paste, essential oil and applicators. As well as body art, Hennacat supplies henna for hair.
Cone material - We prefer using cellophane from CelloDepot.com. We typically use the 9 x 9 size, metalicized on two sides (silver only, no color), but clear would also work.
Essential oils - If you can't find what you're looking for with the suppliers above, or would like to shop around, we recommend Eden Botanicals for excellent quality oils at very reasonable prices.
