oa CSIR Science Scope - Winning recipe for a 'home-grown' mosquito repellent candle : enterprise creation for development

 

Abstract

Studies by CSIR researchers and traditional healers on indigenous plants with mosquito repellent properties in the mid-1990s led to the discovery of a novel mosquito repellent. The essential oil of the indigenous plant, Lippia javanica, has more effective repellent properties than similar or comparable commercial products on the market.
