The Magical Oils from Satthwa

Hola Readers!!

I’m finally back on the block after a long haitus!

This Blog post is a long pending one and deserves a high mention because the products at hand have really won me over and i have reaped some real benefits. That clearly means that if I have benefitted from something, I have to in most likelihood, share it with you my darling friends.

So, my dearies I’m right here to talk about  two magical oils from the renowned, indigenous  brand named SATTHWA, a natural hair and care product range and a wide variety of organic, all natural essential oils.

The two oils I have religiously used for almost two months and am going to review are:-

1. SATTHWA PREMIUM HAIR OIL

2. SATTHWA JOJOBA CARRIER OIL

Satthwa magical oils

Before I begin the review I must share my curiosity and reason to try this product. I have been blessed with thick luscious curly locks, infact, I used to get irritated having  to maintain such heavy hair. Gradually, however I noticed considerable hairfall and I owed it to low maintenance, styling, colouring and sweaty workout routines.

Off-late, I saw a massive increase in hairfall not only from roots rather a lot of hair breakage as well, that clearly signified that my healthy hair were slowly loosing their strength and nutrition as well and were getting dry and damaged. I got into a panic mode and tried and tested several influential so called organic, chemical free products that promised relief from this grave issue and save my crowning glory. Alas, none came to my rescue and my search continued.

Also, its pertinent to mention that the problem of hair-fall, hair damage is so rampant that my inboxes are flooded with requests for reviewing products that could stop hairfall and improve hair health. I receive such requests on a day-to-day basis. Hence, my search for the perfect remedial product became all the more crucial.

Apart from this issue another query that I’m  often bombarded with is the effect of face serums and oil, a trend that is ruling the roost these days and if they are really effective, on what skin types will it suit and in what ways and how to pick the right product from an array of so many. So, this was another reason I was looking for a trusted aide and tried a number of products.

Finally, I came across the instagram handle of this brand SATTHWA and then checked out their site. I had a word with the founder and told him that I would like to review their products for the above mentioned issues and they were gracious enough to send these two oils to me for reviewal.

Before reviewing, let me write something about the brand first. It is a 100% natural and organic certified Hair and Skincare brand. It was started by the visionary founder Mr.Prashant Parikh in 2016 and ever since, its hair oil and many new products like essential oils have benefitted many and there has been no looking back. They, at SATTHWA, go by the motto of “PURE TO THE CORE”, hence, the brand name Satthwa means “PURE” in Sanskrit.

So, here is my review for the two…….

(A)  SATTHWA PREMIUM HAIR OIL

PREMIUM HAIR OIL

This is the most sought after product from the brand and has been creating ripples. Its a premium Hair Oil, 100% chemical free, made with goodness of 9 oils namely, Olive oil, Castor oil, VitaminE, Almond oil, Grapeseed oil, Coconut oil, Jojoba oil, Amla oil, Emu oil. The power of these 9 oils makes this oil a powerhouse, regulates blood flow to scalp, darkens hair, making them thick, stops split ends, promotes new hair growth, prevents greying, unclogs pores, provides anti fungal  support, restores ph balance, provides antioxidants and keratin strength reducing frizz and  dryness.

Hence, it becomes the super food for our hair and scalp, replete with all the essential vitamins Vitamin K, E , Iron, Calcium, Magnesium, Omega-6 & 9, Ricinoleic acid, Lauric acid. It not only controls hair fall but also promotes hair growth and fights premature greying and absolutely clears dandruff.

Thousands of people suffering from these issues have benefitted and some special cases of bald patches, hair thinning have also seen hair growth success and positive results.


Now lets come to the nutshell reviews and final verdict.

1.   PACKAGING.  This oil comes in simple packaging of a convenient plastic bottle with a rotate lid of 100 ml capacity.It has a white paper cover on the outside that carries a detailed information about the product and its ingredients and its essential goodness along with the brand logo and the  Made in India and paraben free tag  highlighted.It also has directions of use written for best results.

2.   M.R.P.      100 ml  of the product comes at a M.R.P OF Rs 599/ which i feel is quite a catch  for the invaluable service of the product.This aspect is definitely a thumbs up from my side.A genuinely,  affordably priced product.

3.   Fragrance.   it doesnot have any particular or strong odour,smell or fragrance.

4.   MFG.    It comes with a shelf life of one year.

5.   HAIR TYPE.   Best for all hair types, especially, dry frizzy hair.


PROS  – It is completely natural, 100% chemical free and a no-side effects product. It is highly travel friendly and easy to use. Starts delivering results within few uses. It Delivers what it claims.

CONS – No cons as such but maybe the packaging could be made more attractive for such an amazing product. Also, a packaging with a bigger bottle and more product as the usage is high and refills are frantically needed.

FINAL VERDICT – I have been personally using this oil for more than two months now and I have seen a tremendous change in my hair. My hair fall has considerably reduced, my hair are so soft, gentle and minus the frizz in spite of styling and coloring  I have also used thids oil in many DIY hair masks, I will soon be sharing them on my YouTube Channel. My curls are soft, balanced, nourished, healthy, shiny and strong. I highly recommend this product for all your hair woes and hair care routines. I am going to consistently and religiously use this product to keep on reaping benefits.



(B)   SATTHWA JOJOBA CARRIER OIL

JOJOBA OIL

This is the  second product sent to me for reviewing by the brand upon my query and search for some good facial oils, the founder sent me the sample of Satthwa 100% JOJOBA (pronounced ho-ho-ba ), oil. Its an unrefined, cold pressed moisturizing carrier oil derived from a wild plant shrub. It has some tremendous giving and magical properties. It is highly hydrating and moisturizing  for the body as well as hair. Its  been known to be used for healing hair,skin and sunburn conditions. Its also known for its anti-ageing properties and its regular application provides soft, supple, nourished and a glowing skin  that is forever, youthful and happy. It is rich in Vitamin E and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

It fights even the most stubborn Dandruff  when mixed with few drops of lemon grass essential oil for best results.

Not only this, it also acts as a fabulous makeup remover, specially helpful in removing heavy makeup such as highly pigmented lip colours and eyeshadow, mascara etc.

Even while removing makeup it continues to protect our exposed skin naturally, keeping it soft and safe from harsh rubbing, removing, cleansing process and makes the entire process quicker and easier and keeping the skin nourished.

Its an excellent nourisher for NAILS, for moisturising cuticles,it boosts healthy nail growth and reduces nail breakage.

It acts as an excellent hydrating,moisturising massage oil for the body, rendering it no-residual oil on skin and giving it a healthy glow.

Jojoba Oil is extremely beneficial for Hair and prevents and stops hairfall as it acts as an antifungal and unclogging agent of hair follicles and scalp pores.

Firstly, I use this oil in my makeup removing routine whenever i apply makeup.

SNACK-IT-UP ft.. Snackexperts!!

A CRUNCHY, CRISPY, CHATPATA 💁HOLA !! TO ALL MY READERS❗️

Well, you must have guessed by now why I’m sounding so desperately 👅hungry, that too for little tit-bit munching on the side.
Well, That’s because I have discovered my munching friend recently!!!
and that’s none other than SNACKEXPERTS!!

Are you one of those people who loves munching, has a taste for the chatpata, crunchy small eats; who loves to eat yummy snacks; one who cannot have evening tea without any snacks or feel the need of munchies while reading, watching movies, travelling or gossiping with friends????/??

BUT BUT BUT❗️ You have given up on snacking; you are starving your tastebuds; or you are ridden with constant guilt everytime you tend to snack on that pack of mixture; that pack of wafers; those maida cookies; that sugar rush candy box or that chocolate cake❗️

WELL❗️ Lets accept it guys nothing comes before health and anything and everything that we buy from the market in packets and boxes these days is full of adulterated, unhealthy health hazardous, refined goodies that tempts us all but brings lot of health issues and addictive eating habits as well.


Nostalgia writs large❗️

There was a time when every household in our country would smell of some freshly made home goodies at tea time in the evening; as tea time is almost a sacred every day ritual in our country and inviting guests at tea time especially is a culture in itself. Mothers and ladies of the house would extensively prepare homemade healthy and fresh goodies; sometimes to be stored in jars for few days and sometimes freshly made and served. Only a little portion would be served everyday and some kept safely for guests as well! Those were the days!! We could polish off an entire platter and never worry even a little for any ailment, fitness issues or ill-health.

Tea time ritual

TODAY, as we reach around mids of 2017, a look back makes us realise the paradigm shift of the shape shifting world. We are always running; running to meet the deadlines; reach offices; schools and what not. TIME today has become the most hard to get commodity. It really gets tough for such elaborate rituals and a quick ready to eat bite or packaged snacks; on the go kind of thing seems most befitting. I’m not saying that today our households don’t indulge in home-cooked fresh and health goodies; we do and kudos to all the men-women and families for that! Its only, that the frequency has lessened and so has the preference.

Not to talk of the alluring, well-marketed unhealthy, yet tempting and easy options that our flooding the market today. Not only these are addictive and fast becoming our lifestyle, its trending as well! Almost like a fashion fad, status quo! Especially the children are falling prey to this trend. Also, as most of us are always conscious these days of what to eat and what not to; often when sudden guest plans catches us in tight corner with no time to stir up some fresh goodies and we have to get something packed or from the market; often our guests decline the served goodies and we become the reason of our own embarrassment.

Well❗️ there’s another side to our story as well. We are aware of the health hazards and most of us are trying our best to look for healthier options.BUT again, the same issue of market being flooded with so many options. While there are products whose label read healthy, organic, natural and so on; often found misleading, adulterated, greasy, refined, unhealthy and finally when we actually find trustworthy organic products; their whopping prices touch the roof.


Well❗️ enough of my rants and ravings! AND back to being the crunchy munch HOLA GIRL!

For now the time has come to introduce the newfound guilt-free joy my tastebuds have fallen for!Its a great snacking option and good on the pockets too.

The brand named SNACK EXPERTS, is the candy to my tongue these days.I got a chance to review their snack pack and was apprehensive at first but was amazed and highly impressed when I tried them.


SO, HERE BEGINS MY HONEST REVIEW OF THE SAME:

SnackExperts is an award winning online snack store that delivers nationwide; their base store is in Chennai. I received their products in a cute and sturdy recyclable cardboard package, that had their logo and tagline printed on top,…. saying……

“HEALHTY SNACKING UNLEASHED”

And on the back side of the package instruction the ways this pack can be reused are written. This I found quite cute and useful. For me, how much a brand makes efforts in packing their products speaks volumes about their sincerity towards their venture.

Upon unboxing I found five zip-locked, neatly packed assorted varieties of healthy munchies inside.

Each of the snack pouches looked tempting,fresh and mouth watering but best of all — they were healthy, less oily and wholesome.You can munch on these goodies without having to worry about any ill-health produce. They remained fresh for as long as their expiry date in their pouches.

Zip locked hygienic pouches

Each snack packet has a name synonymous to the ingredients inside;

The five packs out of their 50+ snack varieties that I received were:

1. DRY FRUIT MIX

Dry Fruits Mix

This snack pouch was a sweet tangy fruity delight. It tasted freshness even though they were dried fruits. A mix of golden raisins, green raisins, pineapple and cranberries. Not only it looked so colourful. It was a treat to the palate. We all know about the goodness of raisins and berries but how often we remember to use them? Only occasionally. Nutritionists and dieticians are often heard suggesting these as healthy options, so when they come in a snack pack,their usage is ensured by family and guests. These can also be used as add-ons in yoghurt, oatmeals, porridge, kheer and salads.


2. HONEY ROASTED CASHEW

Honey roasted cashews

These were an absolute tintillating treat for my tastebuds and were polished off sooner than all. Everyone who was served, loved the taste and it was addictive, nutritious and wholesome and even a little satiated that munch hunger pang.

The pack consisted of roasted cashews with yellow mustard seeds, chilly flakes, salt and honey glaze. They were mouthwatering and super yum and perfect to serve at party or at home. The fact that they are roasted makes them more healthy and they can be a good accompaniment with beverages.


3.KODO MILLET CRISPIES

Kodo Millets Crispies

This goodie pack was my most favourite of all. As it reminded me of a South Indian household and the elaborate preparations they make to cook up each savoury. It was a beautiful, typical homemade, authentic preparation. Just like the ones i have tasted many times at my South Indian friends’ home. You can’t get enough of this one and this will be a sure shot hit with everyone. Made of kodo millets, moong dal, rice flour, urad dal etc; they are fresh, tasty and crispiest to the core. You don’t worry about the calorie counts and other stuff while savouring these. They just make you happy, nostalgic and full.


4. OLD FASHIONED NUT MIX

Old Fashioned Nut Mix

This is a perfect mix pack of goodness and health and rich nutrition, often recommended by experts, to be snacked upon a handful a day. It is what its name suggests, an old fashioned nut mix, the healthiest to munch on. Its a mix of Roasted Peanuts, Pepper Cashews, Almonds, Walnuts. It would be a good snacking option on a regular basis for us and our families. Though I feel this lacks something in the taste department, I mean only the cashews are slightly salted, rest all nuts are blandly mixed. Well, We do try to include nuts in our daily routines, walnuts and almonds at least. Also, peanuts and cashews occasionally as well, but when we like to have it as a snack and that too from a brand like snack expert, we would like it to impress our tastebuds a little more.


5. CHOCOLATE FLAPJACK

Chocolate Flapjack

This snack was a first timer for me. I had never tasted a flapjack before. Its a chewy bar or granola baked usually with rolled oats, jaggery, butter, choco chips whole orange and honey. Its almost like a modern twist to a traditional chikki. It did not appeal to me at first bite, but definitely grew onto me. I simply loved the goodness of ingredient infused with taste for the palate. I think kids and youngsters and health freaks would definitely grow onto this as its a trendy mildly sweet savoury with an attractive list of ingredients as well. It will serve as a perfect dessert to a meal and can keep a watch on the exceeding pressure, all the festivities and parties put on our poor waistline. All in all a big thumbs up to this innovation.
