Argan Oil

Argan oil has definitely grown it's way into my heart in terms of body care.  One of the great things I love about it is that this one oil is beneficial for the entire body.  It is quite costly however a little goes a very long way and the skin softening benefits are like no other oil I've used so far.

Argan oil is an oil that is produced the the oils from kernels from the Argan Tree. It is more resistant to oxidation than olive oil which is great for using it to use as a carrier for herbal infused oils.  It is loaded with skin, nail, and hair beautifying fatty acids like omega 3 & 9.  To get the best benefits from its use it's best to purchase pure organic certified Argan oil .  Try to find Argan oil seeds that are harvested from southwestern Morocco which provide the purest Moroccan Argan Oil on earth.
