POTENTIAL TEST OF VARIOUS LOTION FORMULA FROM ZODIAíS (EVODIA SUAVIOLENS SCHERF) LEAF OIL AS REPELLENT AGAINST CULEX QUENQUEFASCIATUS MOSQUITO WHICH CAUSES ELEPHANTIASIS

MOERFIAH, PRASETYORINI AND SRI WARDATUN

Abstract

The research was conducted on phytochemicals test of zodia’s leaf essential oil by GC-MS, showed that the leaf oil contains 3 dominant compounds: Menthofuran 26.92%, Evodone 17.36%, and dl-Limonene 12.09%. The potential of formula with 5% concentration of zodia’s leaf oil on liquid paraffin is 78% against Culex quenquefasciatus mosquitoes. The next stage is distillation of mature zodia’s leaf using steam distillation. Essential oils are tested with GC-MS containing menthofuran 40.69%, 0.27% ßmyrcene, benzofuranone 20.26%, 14.51% D-limonene. The zodia’s leaf oil was formulated in 4 types. Potential test showed that all formulae have the power of protection against Culex quenquefasciatus mosquito above 90% for 7 hours.
