A powdered leaf that is traditionally used to dye the hair and the skin red. Henna has been used by women for thousands of years to dye the hair, the fingernails, the palms and the soles. Men too used it to obtain a red hue in their beards. It comes from a small, attractive shrub with leaves of a pale green colour. Its white flowers give off a sharp odour. But it is the leaves which are dried and crushed into a greenish-yellow powder and then used as the colourant.

RENEWABLY SOURCED AND COMPOSTABLE
We’re moving to a new eco-friendly Natureflex™ film for our clear herb bags. This renewable, plant-sourced bag is made from PEFC/FSC® certified wood pulp and meets both industrial and home composting standards.
USE TIME AND TIME AGAIN
Kept cool and dry, your Natureflex bag will last and be useful for general purpose, such as storage of dried goods. You can bring your Natureflex™ bag, or any other clean container of your preference, on your next visit to be re-filled with dried herbs.
TIP Gently wipe the inside clean with a dry cloth to remove any residual herb dust before using again.
