Mosquitos may love your blood, but do they love it enough to wade through a shield of...dun, dun dun!...geraniol to suck it? If I remember correctly, geraniums are the dapper flowers my mama used to keep in her sunroom. The flowers I'd always take a big whiff of if I wanted to make myself vomit so I could stay home from school. They are also the flowers whose oil, geraniol, goes into these all-natural Invisiband mosquito repellent bracelets.

Invisibands utilize a porous microfiber design so that, unlike hard silicone or plastic insect bracelets, they gradually release their bug-thwarting ingredient, and stay effective for over 120 hours apiece. Each order includes 5 bracelets with adjustable straps to fit all wrist sizes, or for attachment to packs, pant loops, or strollers.

Again, Invisibands use only geraniol oil as an active ingredient. Geraniol oil has been successfully tested as a mosquito deterrent in that it blocks the insects' ability to sense human blood (i.e., CO2 offgassing). They are free of Deet and other toxic chemicals, as well as less messy to apply than traditional sprays and lotions.
