For plantation of Lawsonia Inermes Plant, huge area of approx. 450 to 500 acres of pollution free land and pure water supply is required.

Lawsonia Inermes Plant is having 90 days life and during this period stems and leaves are plucked twice before seedling.
 
The production of NATURAL DARK BROWN (06DBR) is as following process :

CONCRETE TUBS


After plucking the stems and leaves during the morning hours (between 7 and 11),they are put in Concrete tub-1 within half-an-hour, this tub is then filed with pure water. The stems and leaves are pressed from top using wooden stick and kept for 18 hours. After 18 hours, the water becomes greenish and leaves/stems becomes grayish

The greenish water is then shifted to Concrete Tub-2 by opening the valve. The remains of stems and leaves are taken out and dried for burning purpose.

The greenish water in Tub-2 is then manually oxidized by leg from all sides for about 4 hours continuously.
After continuous oxidization of 4 hours, it is allowed to settled down, In 30 to 45 minutes, a thin paste is formed in the bottom of this Tub-2. The water is then shifted to Concrete Tub-3. Now in Tub-2 NATURAL DARK BROWN (06DBR) paste is formed after manual oxidation. This paste is then taken for filtration. After filtration, the paste is evaporated in copper vessel using wooden fire.

After evaporation, again the paste is filtered. Then the thick paste is taken for drying, it is kept in a closed area for 3 days for drying. After 3 days, the NATURE DARK BROWN (06DBR) is ready for packing.
