Essential Oils – Argan Oil

Essential Oils – Argan Oil

b2ap3_thumbnail_argan-oil-stockists-img.pngWinter is the perfect time to experiment with essential oils and what better way to do so than with organic sustainable produced oils. Comes in the Argan Oil, the first of the essential oils I am intrigued by. It is a non- greasy oil rich in Vitamin E and omega-6 fatty acid called linoleic acid that has anti-inflammatory properties.

The story behind this precious oil:

Argan Oil is an oil produced from the kernels of the Argania Spinosa tree, endemic to Morocco, that is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties. The species Argania once covered North Africa and is now endangered and under protection of UNESCO.

Argan Oil remains one of the rarest oils in the world due to the small and very specific growing areas. All Argan sold today is produced by a women’s cooperative that shares the profits among the local women of the Berber tribe. The cooperative has established an ecosystem reforestation project so that the supply of Argan Oil will not run out. Berber women sit on the floor with rough rectangular stones between their knees cracking nuts with rounded rocks. Each smooth nut contains one to three kernels, which look like sliced almonds and are rich in oil. The kernels are then removed. It takes several days and about 32 kilograms of fruit - roughly one season’s produce from a single tree - to make only one liter of oil.
