Baruipur: The aroma industry is coming up in Bengal in a very big way. Towards that end, the State Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Department is setting up two aroma gardens – one on 4 acres at Baruipur in South 24 Parganas district and another on 40 acres in Jhargram.
For the latter, the Paschimanchal Unnayan Affairs (PUA) Department will also assist the MSME Department.
Oil will be extracted from the plants and trees, even from the roots. Experts will identify the plants to be planted.
Aroma therapy is used in beauty treatment and also to cure some diseases. Lavender, rosemary and lemon grass are being planted in Baruipur.
