Abstract:
The history of aromatic plants dates back through many ages and civilizations and they have been used for many years to prevent, restore and aid in numerous diseases, as well as to expand the wellbeing and prosperity of the populations. Since the beginning of time, essential oils have played a pivotal role in human life, either directly or indirectly. Each aromatic plant contains a certain number of chemical compounds that differ from plant to plant. These compounds have different modes of action, such as antimicrobial, anti-parasitic, antiprotozoal, antifungal, anti-inflammatory etc. Aromatic plants are exceptionally beneficial to human culture because they are more affordable, accessible, as well as being distinctive, natural, sustainable, and normally recognized as nontoxic items. Hence, aromatic plants play a significant role in human welfare. Intensifying interest in aromatic plants gears up new revenue generating opportunities for rural inhabitants. But, these aromatic plants are not taken care of properly. In light of the foregoing realities, such aromatic plants direly need preservation by all means for future generations.
