Henna Applicator Bottles

Henna applicator bottles are normally the easiest way to apply henna, especially for someone new, because they are very natural to use. We offer a fantastic selection of soft squeeze bottles and applicator tips that are interchangeable.

We have our soft squeeze bottles specially made for us, so they are extra soft and can be used with either Moroccan tips or Jaq tips (both tips require a coupler to work with the bottles). We offer one ounce bottles and half ounce bottles.

1/2 oz Soft Squeeze Applicator Bottles
This is the bottle size I suggest for people new to henna.
These are what is generally used for henna application. They need to be refilled more often, but they are easier to work with and create less waste.

1 oz Soft Squeeze Applicator Bottles
These are nice if you need to do quite a bit of henna. You'll save time with fewer refills, but you will have more waste and need to use more henna to keep it filled.

Now that you know about the bottle sizes, you need to select the applicator tips to use with your soft squeeze bottles.

Jaq Tips
These are the most common applicator tips and are offered in three fine to medium sizes, .05mm, .07mm, and .09mm. Jaq tips are stainless steel and require a nip to work with our soft squeeze applicator bottles.
  • Precise and reliable
  • Long lasting
  • Easy to use
  • Only 3 tips sizes
  • The nip must be pulled out of the bottle to refill the bottle with henna
  • If you don't take good care of them the tip can separate from the cone
Many henna artists started off using these tips and will use nothing else. They are a classic option that does the job very well.

Moroccan Tips
These are a bit newer, and aren't seen as often, but they are AWESOME! I like to think of these as the next generation to the Jaq bottles. They used to be paired with squeeze bottles that were harder plastic than the Jaq bottles, but now we've had special syringe caps made that work with the softest squeeze bottles available.

If you are currently using Jaq bottles, our syringe caps and Moroccan tips will work with them!

We offer Moroccan tips in standard plastic/stainless steel tips and also a polished stainless steel variety that is exclusive to us. Moroccan tips require a syringe cap to work with our soft squeeze bottles.

The standard Moroccan tips (plastic) are offered in five sizes from fine to large, gauges 19, 18, 17, 16 & 14.
The stainless steel Moroccan tips are offered in five sizes from super fine to large, gauges 20, 19, 18, 16 & 14.
These are the tips I suggest for anyone looking to do henna for more than a few of times.

  • Precise and reliable
  • The stainless steel tips are polished on the inside of the tips as well. This allows the henna to flow beautifully.
  • Five tips sizes available
  • The stainless steel tips offer the smallest possible size (20 gauge)
  • Easy to use
  • To refill bottle, just unscrew the syringe cap
  • The standard plastic tips will degrade over time
  • I can't think of any cons regarding the polished stainless steel tips!
If you are unsure you can always try one of our combo applicator kits that contain multiple tips that can be used with the same bottles.

Personally I either use a mylar cone to apply henna or the Moroccan Stainless Steel tip applicator bottles.
