Product review: Para'kito | Win a Para'kito pack!

Gastrology received this product courtesy of Para'Kito for review purposes.

Nothing beats some outdoor fun with mates. Whether you’re camping in the Northern Territory, fishing off the coast of Western Australia, or simply enjoying a BBQ in Brisbane, it's always handy to have mosquito and insect protection devices on hand. 
We were recently at a BBQ at Ruffey Lake Park and thought it would be an opportune time to try out Para'Kito -  a 100 percent natural eco-friendly mosquito and insect protection device.
A European quality product, we liked that Para'Kito is both lightweight and completely waterproof, making it really easy to use. 

A natural and safe alternative to other products on the market, Para’Kito is ideal for adults, children, babies, pregnant women and allergy sufferers alike, as it has no direct contact with the skin, leaves no unpleasant odour and offers 24 hour protection from mosquitoes and insects.

A unique blend of seven essential oils including; lavender, geranium, citronella, pine tree, patchouli, clove and peppermint is infused into the heart of a polymer pellet, which slips easily into your Para’Kito wristband or clip.

These patented oils mask the presence of humans from mosquitos for 15 days effectively making the wearer invisible, even when coming in contact with water, eliminating the need for reapplying sticky chemical sprays.
The Para’Kito clip is particularly handy (it easily attaches to a back pack, belt, or can be hung inside a tent when sleeping) as well as for babies – just hang it from their pram or stroller. We found the clip useful to clip near the tables where we sat at the BBQ as it kept the mossies at bay. The kids on the other hand really liked the neoprene wristband as they could choose from a range of colours available.
