Argan Botanical Oil


Crude argan botanical oil (as opposed to commercially prepared oil), has a savory aroma similar to roasted peanuts or corn nuts.  The color is rich gold, amber like.

Argan oil  is used for food and culinary use in Morocco, primarily for dipping bread, or pouring over salad or couscous. It has also been used for centuries as a healing oil, for skin, injuries, and many health conditions.

It is pressed from the roasted kernel, which must be unshelled by hand–a time consuming process.  Argan nut is high in protein, and after the oil is pressed from it, the leftover cake makes a high protein feed for livestock.

It is  used topically to alleviate dry and flaky skin, and to treat the scalp for dandruff. It is also used as a treatment for burns, acne scars, and as a nourishing conditioner for hair.  And it is a great skin moisturizer for any cosmetic purpose.
