Henna leaves have been in use for millennia and evidence has been linked to their wide use in ancient Egypt and many other civilizations of antiquity. The leaves were used to make a paste to apply to hands and feet to keep them cool during the hot summer months.
Henna can be used to dye skin, hair, and fingernails, as well as fabrics such as silk, wool, and leather.
