Henna is the Persian name for this sweet smelling shrub also called LAWSONIA INERMIS. Other names it is known by are Al-Khanna, Al-Henna, Jamaica Mignotte and Egyptian Privet.
It thrives in hot, sub-tropical countries like India, Pakistan, coasts of Africa and the Middle East. The plant grows to about ten feet and the leaves are harvested as soon as the flowers appear.
The younger leaves from the top shoots contain the strongest dye and these are the ones made into the highest grade henna. Leaves are dried before being powdered, the drier the leaves, the finer the powder will be and so the dye will be stronger.
The rest of the shrub is shredded and dried to be used for hair dyes, shampoos and conditioners. The flowers are used to make perfume
