Abstract(RBIP-142)

Aromatic (Aroma Producing) are those plants which produce a certain type of aroma. Their aroma is due to the presence of essential oil with chemical constituents that contain at least one benzene ring in the chemical configuration. A volatile oil evaporates when exposed to the air and thus is capable of distillation. The essential oil industry was traditionally a cottage industry in India. Since 1974, a number of industrial companies have been established for large scale production of essential oils, oleo resins and perfume. The essential oils from plants being produced in India include ajowain oil, cedar wood oil, celery oil, citronella oil, davana oil, eucalyptus oil, geranium oil, lavender oil. lemon grass oil , mentha oil , palmarosa oil, patchaouli rose oil , sandal wood oil , turpentine oil and vetiver oil .The manufacture of turpentine oil , and resin from pine is a sizable and well established industry in India having 10,000 – 25000 tones annual production of the oil , α – pinine and δ-3 carene are the two vital components produced from the oil. α – Ionone from lemongrass oil for perfumery and β- ionone for vitamin A synthesis are produced in India. Before 1960, menthol was not produced in India but the introduction of Japanese mint, Mentha arvensis and subsequent improvements therefore enabled India to produces over 500 tones of menthol and now tops the world market in export of natural menthol .Although the production of major oils is highly organized, a number of developing countries have volatile oil rich flora not fully utilized or cultivated and the United Nation. Industrial Development Organization has taken steps to inform on the setting up of rural based small scale essential oil industries.
