There’s a dark side to island living – most of the time it’s all sunshine, palm trees and bikinis – but when the sun goes down, that’s when things can get itchy.
You can’t avoid exploring at dusk in Australia- enjoying a drink out with friends, catching the sunset over a different headland… But when the mosquitoes come out, life becomes pretty crowded.
As mosquito food for the past decade and sick of spraying myself every couple of hours (and then having to smell it!), I decided to put the Para’kito wristband to the test!
The wristband comes in different colours and the pellets have a pleasant smell of essential oils, is environmentally friendly and has no chemicals.
Over the past month it has been my constant companion everywhere I went. From the beach to the mountains.. I was stoked that it was lightweight and waterproof which was perfect for me! I swam in the ocean wearing it, did bush walks and kayaked with it.
How to use it
It is recommended to replace the pellets every 15 days although I have used mine for more days and it worked perfectly until the 27th day.
