Culinary Care – Argan Oil

 

Argan oil is one of those countable natural essential oils that have great say in the world market because of they can be efficiently used for so many purposes. They are not just a cure to any one ailment but can even work as enhancers to many needful places on the human body.

For centuries before modern times, the Berbers (indigenous people of Morocco) of this area would collect undigested argan pits from the waste of goats which climb the trees to eat their fruit. The pits were then ground and pressed to make the nutty oil used in cooking and cosmetics. However, the oil used in products available for sale today has most likely been harvested and processed with machines in a verifiably clean and sanitary way, namely -

  • cosmetic
  • culinary

The oil was sold in Moroccan markets even before the Phoenicians arrived, yet the hardy argan tree has been slowly disappearing. Overgrazing by goats and a growing, wood-hungry local population have whittled the number of surviving trees down to less than half of what it was 50 years ago. The tree is a relic of the Earth’s Tertiary Period, which ended about 1.6 million years ago, and it grows in only a few other places in the world. It is tenacious, withering and fruitless during extended droughts, and it lives as long as 200 years.

Argan oil is used for dipping bread, on couscous, salads and similar uses. “Amlou” a thick brown paste with a consistency similar to peanut butter is produced by stone grinding roasted almond and Argan oil and is considered a favorite local bread dip. The unroasted oil is traditionally used as a treatment for skin diseases, and has found favour with the cosmetics industry.

Supporting Women 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 and the income that is currently supporting the women will not disappear. The money is providing healthcare and education to the local women, and supporting the entire community as a whole.

Argan Oil Vs Shea Butter

 

Heard of Argan oil…heard of Shea butter…Heard of their amazing and unusual benefits…

But…Ever heard of a fight between the two?

Well…I am the referee fot his ring…And Ladies and Gentlemen…I present before you…the illustrious…Shea Butter…And the Apparent best…Argan Oil…

Read on to decide yourself…which one is the ‘really’ better oil

Will start from the scratch…The Argan tree and Karite tree (Shea Butter) are in the same family and as such are comparable in many respects….Both have fantastic qualities and one cannot be called better than the other….

Fine…I being the referee…can’t deny that both of these oils are great moisturizing oils….Argan oil is a better moisturizer than Shea Butter because of its high content of unsaturated fatty acids….Yes that means One point to Argan oil…This fact gives Argan oil a higher rate of absorption….Both Argan oil and Shea Butter are non-comedogenic…as in they will never clog your pores…defying the obvious quality of any oil…

Shea Butter has a higher nonsaponifiable…Okay I know it is too big and bizarre a word…but I was trying to refer to its healing fraction…And it is better than Argan here…thus giving it an edge in this category…One point to Shea butter here…Many people call these trees cousin trees…. Now that’s unusual…cousins fighting…(Okay I know it was corny)

One of the primary noticeable differences between Argan oil and Shea Butter is their consistency at room temperature’….Shea Butter is a solid and Argan oil is a liquid…Like an oil it is meant to be…

The only oil we know of which can successfully be blended with Shea Butter without losing the healing properties associated with Premium Grade A Shea Butter is Argan oil….So the cousins come together at this stage…

Okay…now coming to the medicinal properties…these oils have excellent moisturizing properties we have combined Shea Butter and Argan oil are hence a part of many Anti-Aging products….

Argan oil is specially amazing…The aroma of this oil is slightly nutty and dissipates in a few minutes….the  best part of this oil being…it penetrates deep into the skin…So that’s how…the application of argan oil at night before sleeping gives you ultra soft skin in the morning…

So…at the end of the day…I am not surprised to announce that the winner of this competition is the invincible…the best…the most beneficial….Argan Essential Oil…Happy using!

Argan Oil Extraction

 

It is pretty obvious that when you are so keenly interested in something…have a penchant for it then even the most trivial and minute of detail regarding the thing becomes important…

So…Similarly I have taken the responsibility through this article to enlighten you regarding the extraction of this amazing and beloved oil called Argan….

But…before that…know a little about the background of this extraordinary plant…The Argan tree is found mostly in southern Morocco and some parts of Algeria…It is a thorny…weather resistant fruit producing tree…It has a prominent place in the Moroccan civilization heritage…It was named Argania Spinosa in the early 20th century…Argan tree can live hundreds of years…150 to 200 years according to an estimate…

The weather in which it flourishes is basically hot…dry weather and chalky soil rich in lime are the kind of circumstances that are suitable for the growth of Argan…There is very low average rainfall in those areas of Morocco where Argan is found….But it can capture and absorb moisture necessary for its survival from deep within the soil due to its deeply penetrated roots…Total area where Argan is found today is call Argania Forest…

Hmm…the fruit…the magical fruit of this plant looks somewhat like an olive but just that it is a tad bigger…rounder and brown….Each Argan fruit contain very hard kernels…which contains one or three seeds…The Aragn oil is made from the seeds…But as all this seems it is not so…all this process doesn’t happen that fast…

Now…Finally….coming to the Extraction…

For the extraction of the Argan oil…the fruits after been collected by a beating pole…or from the ground….Then the Argan fruits are dried out naturally in the sun….From the smooth surface they become kind of bumpy and dark brown…When the fruits become totally dry…the flash is peeled off and the kernels are broken to remove the seeds….We tried breaking some…and it wasn’t that easy…

There is a slight catch in all this…Cracking the kernels…takes lots of work and effort and it is being done by hand….Taking the seeds out of the kernels…is also done by hand….

Once the seeds are collected they are being fed into a stone…and some say even clay…made grinder from the top…where another woman rotates the top part to squeeze the oil out of seeds….

Another part of the process is gently roasting the seeds…which give the nutty flavor to the oil….Once the seeds are ground into the paste…the paste is then squeezed between the hands to get the oil….

That oil gets purified to get the clean look as we know it…and we see….

The Argan tree grows wild and only in a semi-dessert type of soil…Today…it’s only possible to find it in southwestern Morocco…and since it’s rare and endangered…UNESCO put it under its protection…

Extraction And Uses – Argan Oil And Tree

 

Argan essential oil, well, that is not the only amazing thing that is obtained from the tree of Argan, in fact everything that is obtained from the tree, right from its leaves, wood and even the flowers and fruits, they’re all of great use for some problem or the other.

Argan oil is an oil extracted from the seeds of the argan tree, which is native to Southwestern Morocco. There are a number of uses for argan oil as well as for other products from the argan tree, and demand is often high for genuine argan products.

Since argan oil is difficult to extract, it tends to be very expensive, and this cost is passed on in products which contain argan oil, even in trace amounts. Depending on what you want to use the oil for, you may be able to find it in a health food store or a cosmetic shop; consumers can also order argan oil from cooperatives in Morocco.

To extract argan oil, people must remove an outer layer of pulpy flesh from a hard seed which must be cracked open to get at the seeds inside. The flesh does not smell very appealing, and it is also not very tasty; it is typically used as mulch or animal feed. The cracked shells are burned as a source of -

  • Fuel
  • Wood from downed argan trees
  • Make furnishings

Moroccans make very efficient use of this ancient tree.

Traditionally, women have produced argan oil, first toasting the seeds to release a rich, nutty flavor and then grinding them by hand to extract the oil. The resulting paste can be pressed to get as much oil as possible, and then fed to animals as a nutritious dietary supplement. The dark oil has a rich flavor which appears in some Moroccan foods, classically amlou, a dip for bread, and less toasted oil is used for cosmetics. It is also possible to recover seeds from the feces of goats, as the digestive process softens the hard shells, but these seeds tend to have a pungent odor which makes them less desirable.

This oil is naturally high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids, making it an excellent dietary supplement. It is also very good for the skin; vitamin E can help smooth cracked hands, knees, and elbows while nourishing the skin, and essential fatty acids can promote healthy skin as well. These benefits have made argan oil popular in cosmetics for centuries in Morocco and beyond, and small vials of the costly oil are often on offer at high-end cosmetic stores.
