My March “What’s In My Suitcase?” Pick Part I

Welcome fellow travelers!!! In honor of International Women’s Day (on yesterday,) my first March pick is a product that pays homage to strong women, on a mission for healthy hair across the globe. Today’s feature is on an incredible Ayurvedic product- Arya Hair Oil, by Arya Essentials. The word arya by definition means, “noble, precious and pure” (,) derived from its Sanskrit root. Additionally, this Indian “liquid gold” boasts of the ability to strengthen hair, nourish the scalp, and promote hair growth. Thus far, this product appears to live up to its name! Most would agree, that a woman’s hair is her crown of glory- and it’s no different for us women on the go! Throughout our travels, we experience adverse climates and hard water, so we’re always in search of best ways to tackle our travel, hair woes. Having the appropriate products can be the real difference maker when living out of suitcases. I recently became acquainted with this remarkable blend of essential oils, so I’m thrilled to share my experience with all of you! Let’s take a closer look at this March suitcase pick.
Arya Essential hair oil offers the perfect mix of ingredients; coconut, sesame, amla, bhringaraj, fenugreek, lavender, and jasmine. It’s a soft, light amalgamation of oils that is comprised with the Ayurvedic Healing Principles in mind- Ayurveda “believes in the union of the mind, body, and soul. They believe the achievement of this union is necessary for an individual to be whole and balanced” ( The product is also paraben free, GMO free, sulfate free and synthetic fragrance free. The 3.4 fl. oz. spray glass bottle of essential oil comes inside of a beautiful soft blue box, with henna like detail embossed on the front. Upon opening, a fragrant scent of the ingredients immediately fills the air

Arya is easy to apply as part of the pre-shampoo phase.
o Step 1– massage into scalp and hair; leave on for 10-15 minutes, or for deeper conditioning, which I tried, leave on for 30-45 mins, and cover with a shower cap for deep conditioning. This must be done PRIOR to shampooing.
o Step 2– rinse oil out, and proceed with regular shampoo or co-wash regimen.

The instructions suggest using once a week for best results. However, after my initial test, I could detect a slight difference in the glossiness of my hair. Since then, it has increased, and appears to have thickened to some degree. I also appreciated that it didn’t leave my hair feeling overly greasy or weighed down. It was nice and light, and rinsed out easily. I’m still in the process of testing the oil out with various co-wash and shampoo regimens, but I’m happy to say, so far we’ve gotten off to a fantastic start! I also like that it comes in a spray bottle for an almost effortless application. The Arya Essentials Hair Oil gets two thumbs up!!! It fits perfectly in my inner suitcase pocket for transport, and will become a staple for future travels. After this positive experience, I can’t wait to try their body oil! Thank you to the Arya Essentials team for sharing this amazing product with me!
