In Sikka Regency, dengue cases have frequently been categorized as Extraordinary Events. Various efforts have been conducted to overcome the cases. However, many local people have not been aware of both the dangers and solutions to overcome the cases. An alternative solution offered is the use of aromatherapy candles as a mosquito repellent. Aromatherapy candles which are made from citronella (widely grown in local people's yards) can be used as an alternative to repel mosquitoes or eradicate larvae. This community service activity was carried out by providing counseling related to the dangers of dengue and aromatherapy candles making as an alternative solution to repel mosquitoes. In addition to counseling, training was also provided in the manufacture of aromatherapy candles. It is hoped that local people are increasingly aware of the dangers of dengue and can make use of the plants around their neighborhood.
