"The ladies of the palace performed the Solah Shringar, the Sixteen Rituals of Adornment. In the first of these rituals, maid painted intricate patterns with henna on the girl's palms and on the soles of her feet. Then herbal essences were rubbed on her body until her skin was smoother than silk. A lotus shaped bath gushed scented water. Flowing garments made of the finest cottons and silks and embroidered with delicate motifs were put on her. She completed her toilette by plaiting sweet smelling flowers in her hair and sweetening her breath with cloves."

-A Second Paradise: Indian Courtly Life (1590-1947) by Naveen Patnaik
