species in the genus Lawsonia in the family Lythraceae.
It is native to tropical and subtropical regions of Africa, southern Asia
and northern Australasia with an fruit is a dry capsule 6-8 mm diameter,
containing numerous 1-2.5 mm seeds. There is much speculation as to the
first origin of the use of henna.
What is known for sure is that henna has been used as a cosmetic, as well
as for its supposed healing properties for at least 5000 years.
Centuries of migration and cultural interaction has made it difficult to
determine with absolute certainty where the tradition began. Some scholars
claim that the earliest documentations of henna use were found in ancient
Indian texts and images, indicating that mehandi as an art-form may have
originated in ancient India .
Others, however, state that the use of henna was taken to India by the
Moguls in the 12th Century, centuries after use in the Middle East and North
Africa. Still others insist that the tradition of mehandi originated in
North Africa and the Middle Eastern countries during ancient times.
Henna use has also been documented in ancient Egypt, where it is known to
have been used to stain the fingers and toes of the Pharaohs prior to
mummification. It is also possible that the similar use of henna for skin
decoration in these regions arose independently and perhaps simultaneously,
and this could account for the difficulty in pinpointing an exact birthplace
of mehandi art.
