Malaysia is a country that fosters a hot and humid climate all year around. Lamentably, like most equatorial nations, these climatic conditions are very favourable for mosquito growth which gives rise to various mosquito-borne diseases. Most mosquito sprays found on the market contain Permethrin which is toxic and have negative Impacts to the environment. In the age of scientific innovation, we put forward a neoteric product which in objective, aims to repel mosquitoes and attenuate the ubiquity of mosquito-borne illnesses. Our product in question is a candle which effuses a natural repellent derived from a combination lemongrass, lavender and cinnamon which have been proven to be efficacious In repelling mosquitoes. In contrast to most of the mosquito repellents currently on the market, our candle is devoid of any deleterious chemicals, making it eco-friendly and safe for consumption. Boasting a long-lasting effect, the repellent possesses an impressive burn time of around four hours and cover an area of approximately 9 square meters. We are confident that our product endows the promising potential to improve the quality of life and the health of countless individuals who are susceptible to mosquito-borne diseases such as Malaria, dengue fever, Chikungunya virus and Zika virus. Utilizing extensive knowledge in biology and chemistry, a number of tests have been carried out by us to ensure the efficiency and safety of our innovation. We are optimistic that our product will be recognized as an innovative game-changer.
