When it comes to cosmetics, we have thousands of options to choose from. Sadly, most of them are only chemicals that are not nature-friendly or even effective, at all. Luckily, we can find remedies that are good for our bodies, right in the heart of nature.
You might have already seen it advertised by the great cosmetics companies who brag about using this oil in their products. They may, but you can never be sure whether they really are, and if so, what is the quantity they actually use. That is why, the argan oil, as well as other natural oils, are best to be used in their organic cold-pressed form.
This magic oil comes from the argan trees in Morocco. The fruits are so full of nutrients, even the goats climb these trees to eat them. For centuries, the natives of the argan woodlands in Morocco have extracted the oil and used it for culinary purposes, but also to treat their wounds and rashes.
The oil is rich Vitamin A and Vitamin E, antioxidants, omega 6 fatty acids and linoleic acids. Unlike other oils, it is absorbed quickly in the skin without living it heavy or oily. Due to its nutrients, the argan oil is great for treating skin infections, bug bites, rashes or skin inflammations. It is a great moisturizer for your skin, your hair, or your nails. Find out more about how you can use the argan oil.
1. You can use it to make your 100% natural, home-made skin toner.
Boil a cup of water and add a green tea bag in it. Let it infuse for 7-10 minutes and when it cools, add 1-2 drops of whatever essential oil you like and 2-4 drops of argan oil. Keep the mixture in a closed jar and use your home-made toner twice a day after you cleanse your skin.
2. You can use it as a nighttime moisturizer.
Apply a single drop (2 if your skin is very dry) on your palms and apply it on your face and neck. It will be absorbed fast, and unlike other moisturizers, it won't leave your skin too heavy or oily. Keep it on overnight, to nourish your skin and reduce your fine wrinkles.
3. DIY argan oil exfoliant.
Directly on your palms, mix 1 tablespoon of brown sugar with 2 drops of argan oil, then rub it on your face in circular motions for 2-4 minutes. Due to the brown sugar, the argan oil will be better absorbed, it will remove the dead cells and clear your skin.
4. A natural remedy for acne.
Research has shown that argan oil reduces sebum levels in individuals with an oily skin. And thanks to the linoleic acid, it reduces inflammation and helps soothe the damaged skin cells.
5. You can use it to prevent stretch marks.
The argan oil improves the elasticity of your skin, so if your a Mommy-to-be, rub 2-3 drops on the problem areas every day, to naturally prevent stretch marks. If you already have them, use the exfoliant above once a week, before you take a bath, then apply the oil daily. And since we're talking about Mommies, they should know that it's also perfect for the babies' skin.
6. A natural after-shave.
Both men and women can use the argan oil after they shave their beards or legs because it soothes and moisturizes the skin and quickly heals any razor bumps.
7. It's a great leave-in conditioner.
Since it's a non-greasy oil, it can be used as a leave-in conditioner. It tames frizz and fly-aways, protects the hair from heat, providing it with a healthy shine. It nourishes your hair, it repairs the split ends and it makes your hair grow faster and stronger.
8. It's good for your nails.
The argan oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory proprieties which help to treat nail and skin infections. It's a non-greasy moisturizer for your nails and cuticles and it helps prevent those painful and annoying hangnails.
9. An effective treatment for hair loss.
If you're dealing with hair loss, massage your scalp 3 times a week with a few drops of argan oil. Due to its rich nutrient content, the oil stimulates your scalp, prevents hair loss and promotes new growth.

The argan oil nourishes the dry, cracked skin on your feet or heels. Massage the problem area with 2 drops (or more, if needed), then cover with socks and keep it on for 30 minutes, or even better, overnight.
