ABSTRACT:
Objective: To investigate mosquito repellent activity of Polyherbal Formulations of Extraction of Annona squamosa, Azadirachta indica, Eucalyptus alba, Citrus aurantium and Rosa indica and their phytochemical analysis. Methods: The mosquito repellent activity of the Aqueous and ethanolic Extracts of Annona squamosa, Azadirachta indica, Eucalyptus alba, Citrus aurantium and Rosa indica by rabbit ear method and human bite method, the results were compared for the both extracts. Mosquito repellent activity is compared with standard drug Odomos. Results: The plant possesses significant mosquito repellant activity at higher concentrations of 7.5% and10.0 % w/w respectively. The mosquito repellant effect of extracts is comparable with that of the effect produced by the standard drug odomos. Conclusion: From the above finding concluding that, the plant possesses significant mosquito repellant activity at higher concentrations of 7.5% and10.0%w/w respectively. Conclude that the polyherbal cream formulation is comparatively effective to that of standard drug i.e., Odomos which also require further research regarding pharmacological screening for its further development and use.
