Mosquito Repellent Charm With Peppermint Oil Says 'Bug Off!' Naturally


Chemical bug sprays worry many parents who still want to protect their kids from biting insects. Enter Pista-kun, the peppermint oil infused charm that repels mosquitos the natural way.

Peppermint oil is a recognized insect repellant used by, among others, the EcoSmart Technologies line of products. Now kids can employ the same, safe protection against mosquitoes, ticks and other biting insects - attractively packaged in a cute & convenient cell phone charm.





Pista-kun is just 1.57 inches (4cm) tall and looks somewhat like a smiling green pea nestled in its pod. The charm is infused with natural peppermint oil, which according to Strapya World will last at full strength for about one month.

Peppermint oil can be easily and inexpensively purchased at most natural products and health food stores, allowing users to renew Pista-kun's anti-insect effect indefinitely - something you can do with store-bought chemical insect repellants.





Pista-kun peppermint oil bug-repellant charms come complete with an integral loop that allows kids - heck, adults too - to attach it to their purse, rucksack zipper, belt loop, you name it! They can be ordered online from Strapya World for just 520 yen (about $5.80) each.
