Our main aim was to produce products that utilises the repellent properties in the scent of the Ocimum K herb, so as to aid affected persons in the fight against malaria. We wanted to find out which product(s) retained the efficacy of Ocimum K as an effective repellent after being processed into a product for future use in countries affected by this disease. We wanted to make a product that people in affected areas can easily make and replicate as well as love to use on their skin
