What is “henna”?

Definition of "Henna"

Henna is a tree or shrub, having fragrant white or reddish flowers, that is found in India, the Middle East, and North Africa. A reddish-orange dye (of the same name) is derived from the dried leaves of these plants and used to create temporary body art. People not only stain their hands and feet with henna as decorations but as protection from sunburn.
