The key factor driving growth in the insect repellent market is the demand for organic insect repellent products. Plant-based or herbal insect repellents have been used traditionally as a personal protection measure against insects and mosquitoes. Most plants contain compounds that help in preventing attacks from plant-eating insects. Although the primary function of these compounds is a defense against plant-eating insects, many are also effective against mosquitoes. Knowledge of traditional repellent plants obtained through ethnobotanical studies is a valuable resource for the development of new natural products. Citronella was originally extracted for use in perfumery. However, citronella is currently one of the most widely used organic ingredients in insect repellent products.
