Aims & Objective

Medicinal Plants are various types of plants that are used in Ayurveda and Unani Medicine since ancient times for medicinal purposes to cure human ailments. Ancient Unani manuscripts, Egyptian papyrus for over 8000 years and the Chinese scripts have all mentioned about the benefits of these herbs, which have been used by the Unani Medicine & Ayurveda Physicians and also in Mediterranean cultures. In the AYUSH system also in India, about 8,000 herbal remedies have been codified. According to the recent World Health Organization (WHO) estimates, around 21,000 plant species have the potential of being used as medicinal plants and nearly 80 percent of people worldwide rely on these herbal medicines for their primary health care need. Hence, the economic importance of these medicinal plants for countries such as India cannot be underestimated. In fact, these medicinal herbs are important sources for the pharmaceutical manufacturing. Medicinal plants such as Aloe, Tulsi, Neem, Turmeric and Ginger can cure several common ailments and hence lot of people have started the plantation of these medicinal plants in their home gardens as well.

The desire to look beautiful is a is as old as the origin of human being himself. Cosmetics are the substances especially prepared to enhance beauty and make a person look attractive and confident. The experiences gathered over centuries have accumulated over the years and cosmetology has become a well-defined science by itself. Numerous herbs are available that can be used in cosmetic preparations and formulations for skincare, hair care and as antioxidants. But Aloe Vera plant’s gel is being used in more 300 products of beauty & oral use in the world, because Aloe Vera (Ghegawar/Gwarpatta) is one of the very useful and important plant.

Aloe barbadensis, or Aloe vera is a plant, which has been used by various pharmaceutical industries and the drugs and cosmetic manufacturers. The indigenous systems of medicines, developed in India, such as Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani etc. have all used this plant for its medicinal and cosmetics values.

The data pertaining to cost-benefit ratio reveals that maximum ratio has been obtained in cultivation of genotypes of Aloe barbadensis, which can fetch the highest gross returns. World trade worth about 80 million US$ dollars exists now and this is likely to increase by 35-40 percent within 5 years. USA dominates the market (65%) while India and China have a share of 10 % each which could be enhanced by its commercial cultivation, and also by enhancing the products of Medicinal & Cosmetic use globally.

Hence, it is very beneficial to grow the plant for individual and commercial use. Aloe vera, once planted, can give yield for about three to five years with three seasons of harvesting each year. One can easily earn more than one lakh per acre per year by its cultivation. The plant needs less care in comparison to the other farming plants.
