I. Introduction

A.
Problem of the Study

This study was conducted to answer the following problems: Will mixing the Natural essential oils can introduce new form of natural bug and mosquito repellent body spray?

Mosquitoes can carry dangerous diseases like dengue and malaria, according to the DOH. Certain repellents -- like those containing citronella oil, rosemary oil, and lemongrass oil -- are likely to repel these mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes that carry the Dengue Virus are often active at dawn and dusk, which makes them less likely to be noticed. Applying repellent protects the wearer from being bitten, even if she can't see mosquitoes at first. Products containing citronella oil, rosemary oil, and lemongrass oil are effective for at least a few hours, while many herbal repellents need application every 20 minutes.

Objectives
