Going on your honeymoon or romantic getaway and looking for a completely natural repellant from that dreaded holiday pest, the mosquito? Well, Natalie Bannister has been trying out the Para’Kito collection of refillable armbands and clips that make dodging those nasties (and the tropical diseases they can carry!) so much easier.
Nothing takes the romance out of a holiday or honeymoon quite like slapping at pesky mosquitos every other second, so the Para’Kito collection is an absolute blessing for anyone going on a romantic island getaway! The Para’Kito pellets are infused with a blend of seven essential oils, extracted from plants to form a natural barrier that repels mosquitos. They are completely chemical free, making them suitable for pregnant women and kids – you simply wear the neoprene bands on your wrists or ankles, or clip them to your bag or belt, load it up with your Para’Kito pellet, and you’re good to go. And as they come in a range of cool colours and designs, they don’t at all look out of place even when you’re dressing up. Each Para’Kito pellet lasts for 15 consecutive days, and you can take along a few refills if you’re planning on being away on your honeymoon or romantic holiday for an extended period, like I am.
I’m about to head off on a month long holiday, lounging on a palm fringed beach on an island in the south of Thailand (I know, tough gig!), and I’ve packed the Para’Kito bands so that, for once, I’m not covering myself head to toe in nasty chemical repellants morning, noon and night! Oh, and they’re even waterproof, so there’s no need to take them off to go swimming or snorkelling. I wish I had discovered these sooner. Seriously savvy devices using nature’s own ingredients. You gotta love that! Definitely put these on your to-pack list if you’re heading to an island locale for your honeymoon or romantic getaway.
