Abstract:

Henna (Lawsonia inermis, Lythraceae family) is a shrub grown in India, Sri Lanka, North Africa and some regions of the Sultanate of Oman. The active color lawsone (2-hydroxy-1, 4-naphthoquinone) is found in henna (Lawsonia inermis, Lythraceae family). Henna dye is manufactured by powdering dried henna leaves and combining them with oil or water to create hair and body colors. Temporary henna tattoos are widely available all over the world, last for many weeks on the skin, and are a self-contained, practical alternative to permanent tattoos. According to a phytochemical analysis, crop leaves from the October-November season have higher quality henna than others. The existence of various phytonutrients in Henna powder was also examined using phytochemical screening. Lawsone, an active component of Henna leaves that is responsible for color synthesis, has also been measured in a range of plant species. In addition to the phytochemical screening, antimicrobial studies of the natural and market samples of Henna have shown remarkable zones of inhibition proving their medicinal importance.
