It is a bushy, perennial herb with green compound leaves that blooms in yellow clusters in summer.

It is used as a flavoring spice in most of the cookies we eat. In addition, the flavor that gives cappuccino that distinctive aroma is senna. It has taken its place in the cuisine of many regions as a spice seasoning in almost all kinds of salads and meals.
From the senna plant; senna tea, cassia oil, cassia paste, cassia capsule, senna cream, and extract are produced.
