The structural elucidation of Lawsonia inermis exposed the presence of several triterpenes, sterols, flavonoids, coumarine, phenolic derivatives, isoplumbagin, aliphatics, hennotonic acid, mannitol and Gallic acid. Lawsonia inermis is widely used in the treatment of antiurolithiatic, anticonvulsant activity, anthelmintic activity, antibacterial activity antidiabetic and antioxidant activities, trypsin inhibitory activity, hepatoprotective activity, abortifacient activity and to promote healing of wounds of henna etc. The review is an attempt to make the future scientist conscious of the vital role played by Lawsonia inermis in treating various ailments and to discover new compounds which adds tribute to this medicinal plant.
