Abstract: Wound healing potential of different extracts of henna leaves i.e. Lawsonia inermis Linn. was evaluated on the rat excision and incision wound models. Lawsone isolated from the leaves was also screened for same pharmacological activity. It was observed that the oral administration as well as topical application of ethanol extract of henna leaves and lawsone exhibited significant healing response in both the wound models. Further, it was found that the topical application of ethanol extract as well as isolated lawsone was more effective than the same given by the oral route. Thus, topical application of ethanol extract can be successfully formulated for the wound healing activity.
