Agriculture provides the main source of income for many rural communities in developing countries., diversification to growing and even processing agricultural plants for essential oils, can help protect farmers from unstable prices of cash crops. Essentials oils (volatile oils) can be extracted from the leaves, flowers, seeds, bark, roots from a wide variety of plants and the rind of certain fruits. An estimated 3,000 essential oils are known of which approximately 300 are of commercial importance.
West Africa Production
In West Africa, production of essential oils is helping to provide employment in rural areas and to protect farmers from unstable prices of traditional cash crops, such as cocoa, coffee, cotton and palm. In Togo, Benin and Ghana, a regional project has supported rural communities in mastering the extraction of essential oils from Gambian tea, basil, lemongrass, and other native plants. The production of these oils is not only meeting local demand but is earning valuable foreign exchange through sale on international markets. Help others LIVE a productive and happy life by supporting MrandMrsNurse and the farms that we source our oils from.
Morocco and Beyond
In Morocco, cottage industries for extracting essential oils have existed since the C7th AD utilising the aromatic plants that make up a large part of the natural vegetation. However, researchers have been able to improve and add value to this 'essential' industry and to provide additional environmental benefits for growing these aromatic plants.
Distillation of oil from the Waria-Waria tree leaves (Asteromyrtus symphyocapra) in picture, is providing much needed cash income for villagers in the lowlands of the Western Province of Papua New Guinea. CSIRO scientists have worked with locals to develop a system for growing, harvesting and processing the leaves from this tree species to provide an oil, similar to eucalyptus oil, for treating colds, aches and pains and even as a hair restorer.
