Our previous work was concerned with the aromatic plant basil (Ocimum basilicum). Several accessions (types) collected from different parts of the world showed immense chemical variability. Biological activities of the essential oil were also studied,most notable among which was mosquito repellency. An anti-mosquito preparation containing this essential oil at the level of 1per cent was formulated for use by rubbing on the human skin.
