Essential Oil in Curry Leaf as Insect Repellent
We use insect repellents to get rid of mosquitoes, cockroaches etc. The widely used ingredient in those repellents is DEET (N, N-diethyl-m-toluamide). It was proven to be very efficient in repel ling insects.
However, this synthetic chemical has some shortcomings. Firstly, it is toxic. It may cause encephalopathy in children. Besides, it was found to cause urticarial syndrome, anaphylaxic, hypertension and decreased heart beat. It also contributes to the environmental pollution.
Due to the above disadvantages, people are searching for natural repellents which do not have any side effects. Essential oils in plants were found to be useful as natural insect repellent.
There are a few essential oils found in plants that are concocted in the insect repellents.
Essential oil in lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus ) which contains citronellol is used to repel mosquitoes. It can give 2 hours repellency after spraying. This type of mosquitoes repellent could be found on sales in most supermarkets.
Neem oil from Neem tree (Indian lilac, Azadirachta indica) are also used as insect repellent. Neem oil are very useful as it could used to prevent and repel 200 kinds of insects. It is very unique that it is not harmful to friendly insects like dragonfly, spider, earth worm, frog etc. It is of course, not hamful to human being. In fact, neem tree is the most useful plant in terms of getting essential oil for repellent purposes.
In essential oils, their repellent properties are associated with the presence of mono terpenoids and sesquiterpenes. Examples of terpenoids are alpha-pinene, limonene, citronellol, citronellal, camphor, thymol etc.
Curry leaf however, is more famous for use in culinary dishes as it gives special aroma to the foods.
The scientific research found that essential oil in curry leaf contains alpha-pinene and beta-myrcene. These two active ingredients have great potential to make curry leaf a source of insect repellent.
Further effort need to be put in to carry out more researches and to commercialize essential oil in curry leaf as an insect repellent.
