To avoid getting too much sunlight, my kids and I like to head outside in the late afternoon and evenings. Unfortunately, nasty bugs like mosquitos also like to come out at the same time. Mosquitos especially love my husband. Because I am worried about mosquito-transmitted diseases like zika, I keep plenty of mosquito repellent on hand. I have also planted a container of mosquito-repelling plants on my back patio. When recently offered the chance to review a five-pack of MLVOC all natural mosquito repellent bracelets in exchange for my honest opinion, I eagerly accepted the opportunity to add to my arsenal against insects.
MLVOC all natural mosquito repellent bracelets currently cost $9.99 for a pack of five bracelets and one washcloth on Amazon. Each bracelet lasts for up to a week, meaning one package can last approximately a month. A can of bug spray costs around the same price. I would pay the current price for a five-pack of all natural mosquito repellent bracelets, so I rate the price positively.
All natural and non-toxic, MLVOC all natural mosquito repellent bracelets contain lemon grass oil, eucalyptus oil, and mint oil. Protect yourself and your family with natural herbal oils that effectively repel mosquitos and other insects. The adjustable one-size-fits-all bracelets come in pink, orange, yellow, green, and blue. The soft and sturdy material also looks great on the wrist or ankle. Each bracelet can provide up to seven days of continuous protection. A five-pack of bracelets also comes with a washcloth that can be used to wipe sweat away during the hot summer months.
Using the MLVOC all natural mosquito repellent bracelets is incredibly simple. Start by cutting or tearing open the protective bag of an individually packaged bracelet. Remove the bracelet and set the bag aside for overnight storage. Place the bracelet around your wrist, adjust the band to the perfect size, and buckle it tight using the precut holes and snap. At the end of the ay, unlock the buckle and replace it in the protective bag. For young children and infants, place the bracelet on an ankle instead of a wrist. Putting the bracelet on and taking it off again is super easy, requiring only a few moments. I therefore rate the MLVOC mosquito repellent bracelent very highly in terms of ease-of-use.
Because mosquitos love my husband, I asked him for his help in testing the MLVOC all natural mosquito repellent bracelets. Although bug season is not in full swing yet because of unusually cool spring weather, I have already seen a few mosquitos around my yard already. To test the all natural bug repellent, my husband headed out under our weed-infested pine trees in the evening with the orange bracelet on his wrist. Normally he would immediately be attached by bugs. In fact, early that day he received two bug bites while standing outside in the late afternoon at a party. With the MLVOC mosquito repellent bracelet on, not a single bug bothered him.
As soon as I opened the package, I could smell the herbal oils. Although I could not find any details about the herb blend on the product description or bracelet packaging, I asked about the ingredients on Amazon. The seller replied that the bracelets contain lemon grass oil, eucalyptus oil, and mint oil. The most prominent smell is the lemon grass oil. Lemon grass contains citronella oil, which has long been used as a natural insect repellent. The herbal oils smell really good but are not overpowering. I rate these bracelets highly in terms of scent.
I am excited to continue using the MLVOC all natural mosquito repellent bracelets on myself and my family as the warmer months of summer arrive. My kids and I love hanging out in the backyard in the evenings. The herbal oils seem to repel insects including mosquitos effectively. With the looming threat of zika, I definitely want to protect my family from bugs as much as possible. The only downside of these bracelets is that herbal insect repellents do not work against all disease-carrying bugs. While I will definitely use these bracelets while in my own backyard or at a local park, I will still use a conventional bug spray containing DEET when I venture into terrain prone to ticks or heavily infested with mosquitos.
If you are looking for an herbal insect repellent, I recommend giving the five-pack of MLVOC all natural mosquito repellent bracelets a try. All natural and non-toxic, the bracelets contain lemon grass oil, eucalyptus oil, and mint oil, all of which are herbal oils that have been used as effective natural insect repellents. The adjustable one-size-fits-all bracelets come in pink, orange, yellow, green, and blue and fit most infants through adults. Each bracelet can provide up to seven days of continuous protection. I plan to use the all natural mosquito repellent bracelets from MLVOC on myself and my children throughout the summer as we spend the warm evenings in our backyard.
