The Beautiful Henna Plant

Hence the Moroccan flag is designed that way in celebration of this wonderful and amazing henna plant called Lawsonia Inermis. The plant of henna,  literally means tenderness in arabic. It grows at temperatures above 27 degrees celcius to catch the redness from the sun rays.

The henna plant gives 3 to 5 bi-monthly harvests each year, which lasts from March 25th to November 25th every year. Henna leaves are dried and hashed into a fine powder to be used for hair and skin. its flower is what gives its perfume, its leaf dried and cut is what gives its color for dye.
