Book Description
Lawsonis inermis, hina and mehndi are the Latin, and Hindi names for a fairly large plant with white flowers that grows in North Africa, the Middle East, India and Southeast Asia. Several medicinal properties are attributed to this plant, including its power against bruises, headaches, sore throats and skin disease such as ringworm. The leaves have a cooling effect on the skin and have long been added as an ingredient to perfumed oils and ointments. However, its most familiar role is as the source of a reddish-brown natural dye. For centuries this plant has been used as a colourant for cotton, wool and silk and it continues to be very popular as hair dye and body paint, mostly on the hands and feet.
