How Henna is Colored

The line of Henna offered by Mountain Rose Herbs is made exclusively with Lawsonia inermis, other botanical ingredients are included for the purpose of creating the many different shades which we have to offer.

Mountain Rose Herbs Henna is colored using the following botanical combinations which are combined during manufacturing…

Lawsonia inermis: Red
Lawsonia inermis and Indigofera sp.: Black, Dark Brown, Medium Brown, and Mahogany
Lawsonia inermis, Indigofera sp., and Cassia obovata: Light Brown

Cassia obovata is used to lighten Henna colors, and Indigofera sp. is used to darken some of the Henna colors. Indigo is a natural shrub in the legume family that thrives in dry and almost poor conditions. To date most of it is commercially grown in India, but the Chinese and other Southeast Asian countries are growing it with much success.
