Jirisan Herb Valley is a theme park that's been running for 13 years... specializing in indigenous plants.
And summer is the time of year when they get the most visitors.
 
There are botanical gardens, a research center, some open labs, souvenir shops and more.
 
But according to the tourists, what steals the show is the DIY center.
 
That's where visitors can make their own soaps, scented candles, fragrances, and even bug repellant using herbal plants and flowers.
After so much positive feedback on the DIY center,... and having using extensive data gathered on flower farming, a herb valley official said the center now plans to launch a beauty product brand.
