The study tested the mosquito repellency of six different formulations of lemongrass oil in different classes of base and the oil in liquid paraffin solution. The repellency exhibited by the 1% v/v solution and 15% v/w cream and ointment preparations of the lemongrass oil was comparable to that of a commercial mosquito repellent.
