Over 60% of its populations earn their living from Lime
(Citrus aurantifolia) Plantations, Fruits and Vegetables
plantations , Fisheries and tourism business related.
I see the
benefit of this land and introducing villagers with
new and promising plants, shrub and trees for them to
grow for our essential
oils and hydrosol
Over 30 years
ago, I have bought several pieces of land totalled to
over 10,000 acres in this district. Most of the land
were leased to pineapple planters at very low rate.
Due to the fluctuation of prices of agricultural products,
some planters were not be able to pay for the rent or
even support their families. Essential oil and hydrosol
may be the solution to make them get more income and
help raise their standard of living.
In late 2005 was our first year of operation. In order
to have our essential oil and hydrosol as organic,we
have to get plant materials from our own plantation.
That is why we start planted 1,000 Ylang Ylang trees,
2,000 Golden Michelia champaca trees, 2,000 of Michelia
alba trees, 2,000 of Citrus aurantium, 2,000 Acacia
farnesiana , 2,000 Caesalpinia coriaria, 2,000 of Mimusops
elengi trees, 2,000 Plumeria alba trees , more than
5,000 of Gardenia augusta trees and over 500 acres reserved
area full of natural Nelumbo nucifera, both white and
