The natural properties of henna promote hair growth. The powder can be used to create an essential oil that nourishes and encourages growth.

The word ‘henna’ is understood by people around the world in many different ways. A majority of people probably associate it with the dark-red/brown dye for hair and skin that is traditionally used in many cultures, but the name also applies to the flowering plant from which the dye is derived.

Henna oil, bark, and seeds are the most common forms of medicinal benefits, and the high concentration of chemicals and nutrients in the plant might give it anti-inflammatory, hypotensive, antibacterial, astringent, and antiviral effects. Most of these properties have not been fully explored through clinical trials and are either anecdotal or documented in Ayurveda books.
