Valuation of aromatic and medicinal plants (AMP) of Rif (Northern Morocco)

Author(s): Mohamed Elamin AFILAL, ELasri Ouahid, Mohamed BEREBAH and El FARH Larbi

In this study we present the importance of aromatic and medicinal plants (AMP) for the sustainable development of the Rif. Thus, several wild plants bio have been distilled, and essential oils obtained were analyzed by gas phase chromatography (GPC) to qualify their chromatographic profile. Similarly, we have studied the economic yield in function of the number of days of work that could generate a small exploitation of these natural resources. The results obtained show that the valuation of AMP in the Rif, could create several days of work per year around the different activities and different processes: : the gathering in the framework of cooperatives already existing, the distillation of plants, the conditioning of the essential oils as well obtained, then the activities of formulation of soaps, creams and even perfumes sold to local and national scale as product cosmetics, and to the international scale as basic product for the aromatherapy. Our University Mohamed 1st has the human and material resources to accompany this kind of project. Indeed, in addition to the human skills, our university has an infrastructure adapted to the training, awareness and the physicochemical analyzes in this field, which would without doubt contribute to the installation and the development of new businesses in this sector. In addition, our research team already has experience on the ground since it works with a cooperative and a local association. This innovative initiative can be extended to other regions of Morocco.
