Henna

The Persian ladies tinge the tips of their fingers with henna to make them a reddish-yellow.

“The leaf of the henna-plant resembles that of the myrtle. The blossom has a powerful fragrance: it grows like a feather about 18 inches long, forming a cluster of small yellow flowers.” —Baker: Nile Tribes, Abyssinia, chap. i. p. 3.
