Preface:

Since antiquity aromatic plants have been used as flavour for food and drinks, for imparting fragrance to human body for beautification of homes and gardens for religious rites, as incense and insect repellent in cosmetics and personal adornment and in medicine. Flavours and fragrance have now become every day necessities and between naturally derived aromatic material and synthetics the two are supplementary and must go hand in hand. There is however renewed preference for natural essential oils. India is a large consumer of different kinds of essential oils.

Although essential oils are produced in large quantities this is unable to meet the internal demands for several different types of essential oils, which need to be imported. Major oils being imported in India are geraniym, patchouli, lavender, and lemon, orange oils. Large quantities of oleoresins and resenoides of balsam variety are also imported in the country for use in agarbattis and oleoresins and resenoides are imported.

Increased awareness about the aromatic plants has encouraged many innovative and progressive flowers and entrepreneurs to take up their cultivation as a commercial enterprise, and more and more plants are being harnessed for the preparation of new and newer perfumes. Ours is a vast country where wide variation in climate, soil, altitude and latitude is a available. Nature has bestowed on us a very rich botanical wealth and a large number of diverse types of plants grow wild in different parts of the country. Concerted and planned efforts towards utilization of these natural resources will bring down imports and boost the exports of many of the essential oils. An attempt has been made to organize this book in such a way that it will be useful to everyone interested in the world of plants. Particularly those increasing number of people who are concerned with aromatic plants. Many of these valuable and useful groups of plants are threatened with extinction because of over-exploitation and habitat destruction. Authentic plant spices, which are threatened with extinction, are to be preserved.

My endeavour here is to make people aware of the potential of aromatic plants from all angles and to explore possibilities to develop new vistas for perfumery based raw material. There is a need to identify the natural plant wealth and commercially viable species in each agro climatic zone, to introduce new commercial crops grown and utilized abroad, promote industries to produce essential oils standardize agro techniques for cultivation and production of these plants particularly in forests, waste lands and orchards as an additional income generating activity; and also to strengthen the research and development activity for evolving new aromatic chemicals and their production technology.

In this book more than 400 genera are discussed covering nearly 1,100 species. Almost all commercially important aromatic plants cultivated in different parts of the world have found a place in this publication. Plants with fragrant flowers or plant parts commonly grown in gardens or found in nature, which have not been exploited for essential oil or perfumery quality, are also mentioned. An integrated and comprehensive account of all related aspects of the subject such as nomenclature, description, distribution, cultivation, processing, physical and chemical properties of large selection of plants have been incorporated. I hope that the information furnished in this book will make it easier to identify the aromatic plant and make their growing more thorough and satisfying.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
