Once believed to fend off evil and instead welcome good luck and blessings. Now used to encourage an easy birth and healthy baby. A beautiful design of mother's choice on her belly made of pure, handmade lavender henna. A perfect way to celebrate life and allow mom-to-be to relax and be pampered. Hands and feet designs also available. Best to be done before 34 weeks, when baby wiggles around most.

A blessing way or mother's blessing is an intimate party inspired by an ancient Navajo ceremony called a blessing way. The ceremony is held to prepare an expectant mother for her upcoming birth journey — to shower mom-to-be with love, support and encouragement.

The idea of a blessingway is to celebrate the mother to be, and the growing life within her. At this celebration, mothers often get their bellies casted to have as a keepsake or decorated with aromatic henna. These services can be a part of a blessing way celebration or any other time.
