Henna, scientifically known as Lawsonia inermis, is a plant primarily known for its leaves, which are used to produce a natural dye. 


Henna plants thrive in warm and arid climates. They are often grown in regions with high temperatures and low humidity.

Sunlight: Henna plants prefer full sunlight but can tolerate partial shade.

Watering: While henna plants are drought-tolerant, they benefit from regular watering, especially during dry periods.

Harvesting Henna Leaves:

Leaf Dye: The primary use of henna is for the dye produced from its leaves. Leaves are harvested, dried, and then ground into a powder for use in body art (mehndi) or hair dye.
Cultural and Cosmetic Uses:
