Pandan has a mellow green, milky and floral-like scent and is also known as “the vanilla of Southeast Asian cooking”.
Pandan leaves contain alkaloid compounds, such as 2-acetyl-1-pyrroline, that have a calming effect on the mind.
Long ago, fresh pandan leaves are used as a natural cockroach repellent as the volatile aromatic molecules clogs the *spiracles of the roaches, suffocating them, hence, they flee from the area.
*Spiracles are located at the small opening on the sides of the cockroach body in which breathing takes place.
