The Argan tree is believed to have originated in a village named Argana, which lay to the northeast of the Moroccan city of Agadir. As early as the 1500s, Moroccans have been using Moroccan Argan oil as a skin moisturizer and hair conditioner since ancient times. Phoenicians in as soon as 1550 B.C. have recorded the use of Moroccan Argan Oil by locals to heal and beautify their bodies.
And later on, efforts were made to introduce Moroccan argan oil to European markets, but the commodity never took off. In the 20th century, more and more farmers began clearing long-standing argan forests to plant oranges, tomatoes, and other crops seen as more valuable.
Moroccan Argan Oil is commonly known as liquid gold, and this miracle oil treats dry skin, acne, split ends, stretch marks, chapped lips, and cracked heels. It also works as an effective aftershave oil and leave-in conditioner. Most famous for giving hair strength, shine, and lustre.
Moroccan Argan oil absorbs quickly and does not leave an oily residue. After cleansing your skin with an all-natural cleanser, pour a single drop into your palm to warm. Apply in a circular motion to your face and neck.
Moroccan Argan oil has been proven to reduce sebum levels in individuals with oily skin. This oil’s high linoleic acid content helps to reduce inflammation caused by acne (not to mention rashes, infections, and bug bites) while helping to soothe damaged skin cells.
If you are using this as your moisturizer, but are still fighting acne, consider adding argan essential oil to your list of home remedies for acne. Place a drop in the palm of your hand and lightly dab a bit extra into problem areas. To fight stubborn or persistent whiteheads, be sure to make the toner above, using a couple of drops of tea tree oil.
Overnight Deep Conditioning Treatment
If you have dry, brittle hair, once a week, do an overnight deep conditioning treatment with Moroccan argan oil. Warm 4–10 drops in your hands before massaging into your scalp. Continue applying to the ends, twist, and place a shower cap on top. Your natural body heat retained in the shower cap will help the oil to penetrate, while keeping your pillowcase free of oil. In the morning, wash your hair, rinsing until all residue is gone. If you have dandruff or dry scalp, do an overnight treatment twice per week until the dandruff is gone. Continue with weekly treatments or as needed.
