Indian weddings are known for its loaded traditions. These traditions are the reason our weddings turn out to be extremely beautiful. We have a lot of pujas, dances, new attires, relatives, food and many things. One such ritual is applying mehendi on our palms and legs. This has a good reason behind it that we must know. Not just the bride and the groom, a lot of ladies apply mehendi and celebrate the day.
It is believed that the darker the color turns out to be, the nicer the partner is. Other than just the color, mehendi is done with leaves that act as a medicinal herb. Mehendi cools down our body temperature and calms our mind. Weddings are often attached to a lot of work and hence a lot of stress. Application of mehndi can prevent too much stress because it cools the body and keeps the nerves from becoming tense. This is the reason why mehndi is applied on the hands and feet, which house nerve endings in the body. This also heals a lot of cuts and wounds. It improves blood circulation in the body and enhances general health.
