Why Lavender Matters

In the pretty landscapes of Jammu and Kashmir, something interesting is happening. Local farmers are growing lavender, a fragrant and colorful plant,
on the hillsides. Scientists from the CSIR-Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine are also involved.

Discovering Lavender’s Benefits

Lavender oil is known for its calming and stress-relieving qualities. People like its nice smell and use it in perfumes and cosmetics.
Scientists from CSIR-Indian Institute of Integrative Medicine and CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology in Hyderabad are studying if it can help with sleep problems.

Learning About Lavender

Farmers and scientists are working together to learn more about lavender. They want to find out what’s inside the plant and how it can help people.

Doing Experiments

Scientists are doing tests to see if lavender can be used to treat diseases like cancer.

Making Use of Leftovers

After getting lavender oil, there is some stuff left. They call it ‘marc.’ It might also be useful for something good.

Lavender Water

When they make lavender oil, they also get a kind of water that smells like lavender. People use it for different things like making rooms smell nice.

Growing Other Plants

Besides lavender, they want to learn about other plants that smell nice, like roses and lemongrass. They are helping farmers grow these plants too.

The ‘Lavender Revolution’ is all about finding new things about lavender and other nice-smelling plants to help people and farmers in Jammu and Kashmir.
