ABSTRACT:
Lawsonia inermis known as Henna is a woody and flowering plant found in North Africa and South west Asia. Its leaves extensively in the treatmernt of urinary tract infection in Siddha system of medicine. Lawsonia inermis was subjected to antibacterial analysis. A battery of assays were performed on different extracts of Lawsonia inermis (Henna) for antibacterial activities. Antibacterial effects of n-hexane, choloroform and methanol extracts of the leaves extract of Lawsonia inermis exhibited various degree of inhibition activity. It was observed that leaves extract were promising against gram positive and gram negative bacteria viz. Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli and Proteus mirablis. This study showed that Lawsonia inermis could inhibit certain bacteria.
