Katol from Lanzones Peel / Mosquito repellant

Katol from Lanzones Peel / Mosquito repellant

There have been some study that like other plants lanzones peel has a certain compound that can repel mosquito. Way back in my elementary days I remember my sister making a project about this. They made a katol made from dried lanzones peeling they even copied the coil like structure of the commercially available katol.

Here’s how they do it.

Materials: Starch, aluminum foil, lazones peeling, commercial katol

  1. Lanzones  was sun dried for a few days.
  2. If the lanzones is fully dried you can now pulverized it using a mortar and pastel.
  3. Mix equal amount of starch and pulverized lanzones peeling add water to make a paste like consistency. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Now get the commercial katol and use the foil to make a mold.
  5. Now pour the mixed starch and lanzones into the mold and let it dry.
  6. You now have a katol.

 If your katol does not burn properly you could increase the ratio of pulverized lanzones
