A simple and perfect shot of amla. Is it true they come from the same plant henna comes from? Anyone know?

Sita, in my childhood home we had both the plants and no Henna plant is very different than Amla plant. Even now I have Henna plant at home (but Amla plant is much bigger and we do not have that much space) and they are two different thing.

Nice photo Mridula. Amla / Awla / Nellikai / Awaleha - Nature's perfect cure for bronchial ailments and general debility. Very rich in Vitamin C and a key constituent of Ayurveda's famous formulations: Triphala and Chyawanprash Sita, this is embillic myrobalan. Henna is lawsonia, quite different. If you google you will get better details of both.
