Booklist Review

This easy, natural way of tattooing, found in Egyptian tombs, was a fad started by Hollywood types. As in Natural Hand Care, Weinberg bothers with just highlights as she discusses this plant's history, botanical characteristics, and contemporary usage. Readers will discover that henna can also be employed to condition hair and help lower body temperature, and simple directions are supplied for applying the paste to extremities and other body parts. Although the patterns might not vie for top graphic or illustration awards, they will prove to be easy motifs for beginners to follow and improve upon. --Barbara Jacobs
