Discover the many properties and health benefits of Argan Oil.
Argan oil is an oil from the kernels of the argan tree, which is a tree unique to southwestern Morocco.
It is very versatile and can be used in nutrition, skin and hair care and even medicine.
In North Africa, Argan oil is often used in cooking. It can be used as a bread dip and in salad dressing.
Studies have shown that daily consumption of argan oil may prevent cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and obesity.
Nutritional studies have also shown that daily consumption could reduce levels of bad cholesterol. (LDL)
Argan oil is known to treat skin diseases and heal skin burns. It also deeply moisturizes, nourishes, repairs dry skin and restores its beautiful glow.
Argan oil has become very popular in the United States and is often marketed as “Moroccan Oil” and is used as a hair conditioner.
Look for organic and pure argan oil with no additives.
Dot lightly around your eyes at night before going to bed.
Use on your decollete, hands and all over your body after your shower.
Lightly heated, it is an excellent hot oil hair treatment. (Massage into your hair scalp and leave 30 minutes. Wash your hair with an organic shampoo and do not use a conditioner).
