Can I get me some Vatika please?

One of the things that usually drives me nuts is when it seems everyone in their blogs and the forums are going nuts for a product or ingredient and you can't get your hands on it. It's a major pain in the backside.

One such hard to get your hands on product is Vatika Oil. I quite like this oil - I'm not sure if it's any more incredible than ordinary coconut oil, but I quite like it the smell and am not bothered to make my own, so it's likely to stay in my arsenal for a while. If you want to know more about Vatika Oil, check out this post by Shelli at Hairscapades.

Let's get onto the actual purpose of this post. Whilst visiting the family for Christmas, I went into our not so local Indian grocers (because they actually have one within a 5 mile radius, unlike my pedestrianising self up North) I picked up another bottle.

One for me, and one for you.

It's a 300ml (10.14 fl oz) bottle, so slightly bigger than my last giveaway, and the instructions are simple.

1) Comment on this post and include the word 'Vatika' in your comment somewhere.

The giveaway ends on the 1st of March 2012 23:59 GMT.

Winners will be picked by random - probably out of a hat because that's how I roll.

Good luck!


  1. Vatika oil is quite wonderful, I agree! I'm so glad you found you a supply. :-)

  2. I've been reading and hearing people rave about how Vatika oil benefits their hair. I had just assumed that since I already have coconut oil, it would be very similary, but Apparently there are herbs in there which offer other benefits.

  3. I've never used Vatika oil before - and it says it's good for your scalp and dandruff. Schweet.

  4. Wouldn't mind some Vatika ^_^ I have a teeny bottle at the moment it's so hard to get your fingers into :P

  5. Olli, I never use it from the original bottle. Buy a small flip top bottle from a beauty supply. Submerge the tightly closed Vatika oil bottle in hot water until the oil melts. Remove it from the water, take off the top and use a knife to pop the plastic "cork" out of the bottle. Pour some of the oil into the smaller flip top bottle. Now, when you want to use some oil, you can submerge the smaller bottle in water and it will melt more quickly for use and you can control the flow pouring out of the bottle with the flip top. You can also use a dye applicator bottle like I use (I show it at the beginning of my pre-poo tutorial):

    The thing with that is that the top doesn't close as tightly and you could end up getting water in the bottle. So, I think a flip top bottle is better.

    Good luck!



Thank you for your comment! It will make my day :)
