The popularity of Argan Oil has exploded since the many amazing health benefits offered by this ‘miracle oil’ have been made public. Cold-pressed from the fruit of the Morocan Argan Tree (Argania spinosa) Argan Oil can be used both cosmetically and culinary to improve everything from skin appearance to heart health.
The Amazing Argan Oil Benefits
Imagine a fruit so nutritious that goats will climb trees just to eat them!
Inside that little fruit, is the little nut that gives us argan oil. For generations, natives of the Argan Forest in Morocco have pressed the nut to extract this precious oil, to use as a dietary supplement, for wound healing and rash relief, and to nourish skin and hair. These slow-growing trees are so revered that in 1998 the Argan Forest was declared a Biosphere Reserve By UNESCO.
Often called ‘liquid gold’, argan oil is an organic product extracted from the kernels of the argan tree, which is native to Morocco. It is extremely rich in beneficial nutrients including fatty acids and vitamin E. Its properties make it particularly beneficial for the hair and skin, which makes it a popular cosmetic choice for many celebrities. It’s not just for the rich and famous, though – anyone can reap the argan oil benefits for their body. Here are some of its most common uses.
