My family and I used to live in an area that was heavily developed and populated and we never had to deal with mosquitos. About a year and a half ago we moved to a new house in a more rural area. The subdivision we live in is surrounded by trees and our rear neighbors are dense woods. We love to be outside, especially late afternoon when it is cooler outside here in Florida. We love to go for walks, have bonfires and just play in the backyard. The only problem is the mosquitos. They are everywhere and eat us alive when we are outside. Bug spray works, but I hate the way it makes your skin feel and the smell. I feel the need to take a shower and give my kids a bath as soon as we go inside to wash the nasty bug spray off of us. When I saw this product I knew I had to try it. If it works it would solve our mosquito and bug spray problem!
We got to try them out for the first time of New Year’s Eve. We decided to stay home with the kids this year and have a bonfire with smores and let off fireworks. As expected the mosquitos were out in full force. Normally my kids give me a hard time about being sprayed with bug spray because they hate it as much as I do. They were actually excited about wearing these bracelets because they were so cute and have small character charms that are very colorful. The bracelets smell great too! The best part, they actually work! The aroma that the essential oils give off must be enough to detour the mosquitos away. My kids didn’t have one mosquito bite on them and we didn’t feel the need to immediately wash off when we came inside. This was a mommy win in my books! I highly recommend this product for anyone who wants to keep the bugs away without the bad smells, sticky feeling and harsh chemicals that come from using traditional bug spray.
