Can you smell it? That's not the smell of harmful chemicals like DEET - instead you are smelling only Citronella, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Mint Oils. So when I got the opportunity to receive Eco Defense's All Natural Mosquito Repellent Bracelets in exchange for a unbiased review I didn't hesitate.
We used to buy the curly bracelets that stretch around your wrists/ankles but they don't do a thing to fend of mosquitoes.You could literally wave the things right at them and it didn't deter them one bit. And I'm talking wearing one on every limb. Then we'd end up drenching ourselves with DEET sprays and wondering what new genetic diseases were forming in our bodies.
Not a problem anymore! We used them today in the woods (geocaching) and we're talking heavy mosquito presence and not a single bite. They took one whiff of us and were on their merry way.
And I love the fact that these bracelets are made with 100% natural oils - Citronella, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Mint. They don't smell as strong as citronella candles, just a pleasant whiff of fresh minty citrus.
You get 5 bracelets per pack and for the small amount - currently $11.99 with free shipping on Amazon - it's a no brainer to pick these up before you head outside this summer.
And they're completely adjustable to any sized wrist. Or to minimize any chance of skin irritation, especially in children under the age of 3, you can snap them onto a belt loop, or even a stroller or bedpost. And they are made with a very soft velvety material that doesn't scratch your wrist.
No more holding your breath while you spray chemicals all over your skin. These are just what I've been looking for to take camping with us this summer. Perfect!
I give Eco Defense All Natural Mosquito Repellent Bracelets 5 stars.
