Product Details

Red Henna (Lawsonia inermis) is a flowering shrub or small tree cultivated for millennia across North Africa, southern Asia, and northern Australia. Its historical use is perhaps most well-known. Henna leaves, dried and powdered, have been used as a natural dye for hair and skin. Evidence suggests it colored the hair and hands of mummies in ancient Egypt. The resulting reddish-brown stain was not just decorative; in some cultures, henna body art served as a symbol of social status or marital status.

Medicinally, the leaves have been used to create pastes to cool and soothe burns. Additionally, henna's antifungal and antibacterial properties have led to its use in treating skin conditions like fungal infections and minor wounds.

In some magick traditions, henna leaves are burned as incense for purification or to create a protective atmosphere. Additionally, henna has been used as a symbolic element in rituals for love, healing, and prosperity.
