All About Argan Oil
Pure Argan oil has long been an ancient beauty secret. It was known for centuries only to the
Berber women of Morocco who used the oil to nourish and protect their hair, skin and nails. The
miraculous oil comes from the nuts of the rare and protected Argan tree (Argania spinosa) found
mostly in the semi-desert areas of southwest Morocco. 100% pure organic Argan oil is also
known as 'Liquid Gold' because of its colour and clarity. This 'Liquid Gold' contains high levels
of vitamin E, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. Not only is it great for the skin, hair and nails
but it is also great for your diet!

nice bounce and shine afterwards, or after you have finished blowdrying and before using

All About Argan Oil
Argan Moroccan oil is great for strengthening weak or brittle nails. Mix equal parts of Essence
of Argan oil and lemon juice and soak for 10 minutes. This will soften your cuticles, limit nail
breakage and give nails a healthy radiance.
Furthermore, this Moroccan oil can be taken orally. The Argan nuts that are destined to be used
for skin care and hair care products are left in its raw state in order to preserve the integrity of the
essential fatty acids and vitamins; those that will be used for culinary oil are roasted to bring out
their distinctive nutty flavor. A drizzle of the oil over pasta or as part of a salad dressing is
perfect. Alternatively, you can stir it into soups, couscous, tagines and desserts to give the dish a
delightfully nutty taste. Because of the price of this rare oil, it is mainly used as a condiment or
as a dip for bread. But if money is no object, culinary Argan oil can be used in place of most oils
for general healthy cooking.
So there you have it - now you know why Argan oil is so highly regarded and indispensable. It
may only be a little bottle of oil but just look what it can do for you! Surely, everyone should
have a bottle of Argan oil in their home?!
