Argan Life Oil

Argan essential oil is rather useful solution and deals effectively with all the skin diseases and also many chronic health problems, the oil was elevated in usefulness much before when a bunch of educated explorers stumbled across the age old traditional oil…

 

(NaturalNews) Known by the Moroccan Berber community as the “Tree of Life”, the Argan tree (Argania spinosa) has supported the people of these arid regions and their livestock for centuries. The leaves and fruit sustain goats, camels and sheep. Cattle live off the press-cake that remains after the oil has been extracted; humans eat the oil and the nut shells are used for fuel. Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the tree and is one of the rarest and most expensive oils in the world. Berber women have used Argan oil for centuries to protect and nourish their skin, hair and nails from the harsh conditions in which they live. Now Argan oil is gaining popularity as a “miracle ingredient” in the Western beauty product industry. It has extremely high levels of Vitamin E and 80% fatty acids which make it perfect for healing many skin ailments as well as protecting against premature aging caused by oxidation.
The active substances called triterpenoids that occur in Argan Oil offer amazing skin protection benefits. These include tissue healing (scars), anti-inflammatory, sun-protective and disinfectant properties.

The oil contains 80% unsaturated fatty acids and is more resistant to oxidation than olive oil.
Argan oil also contains 0.8% unsaponifiables (a large group of compounds also known as plant sterols or sterolins). Sterolins improve skin metabolism, reduce inflammation and promote excellent moisture retention.

Argan oil contains rare plant sterols (schottenol and spinasterol), not found in other oils. It is believed that these phytosterols are unique in their combination and that there are no other vegetable oils with a comparable phytosterol composition. In general phytosterols reduce inflammation and help block cholesterol absorption from the intestines. They also show anti-cancer properties.

  • Argan oil facilitates digestion by increasing the concentration of pepsin in the gastric juice. It contains flavonoids that act as a natural anti-inflammatory both internally and externally.
  • The oil is considered highly beneficial for arthritic or rheumatic conditions.
  • It is helpful for lowering cholesterol levels, stimulating circulation and strengthening the body`s natural immunity.
  • It is used to soothe skin ailments like chickenpox, acne, psoriasis, and dry eczema. It is also used to prevent stretch marks during pregnancy.
  • Traditionally Argan oil is also reputed to have aphrodisiac and tonic properties.

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.

Under The Aegis Of Argan Tree

Heard a lot of the oil…Argan..I think it is time for me to enlighten you about the mommy of argan oil…the one that gave birth to this wonderful…helpful…amazing…thing…

Hmm…Read on…to know about…Argan…The tree..

The Argan tree is thorny and can reach heights of 8-10 metres…probably originated in Argana…a village north-east of Agadir…It lives longer than the olive and requires no cultivation…

When goats eat the frui…the fleshy part is digested but the nut remains…It is later…the nuts are collected by farmers to produce oil…

The production of argan oil…which is still mostly done by traditional methods…is a lengthy process…Each nut has to be cracked open to remove the kernels…and it is said that producing one litre of oil takes 20 hours’ work….

About what it looks like…The trunk of the argan is often twisted and gnarled…allowing goats to clamber along its branches and feed on the leaves and fruit…

As for the fruit of it…the fruit has a green…fleshy exterior like an olive…but larger and rounder…Inside…there is a nut with an extremely hard shell…which in turn contains one…two or three almond-shaped kernels…

Argan oil is slightly darker than olive oil…with a reddish tinge…It can be used for cooking and is claimed to have various medicinal properties…such as

  • lowering cholesterol levels
  • stimulating circulation
  • strengthening the body’s natural defences

Also…Internationally…It is a part of cosmetic uses….

The residue from the kernels after oil extraction is a thick chocolate-coloured paste called “amlou” which is sweetened and served as a dip for bread at breakfast time in Berber households….It flavour is similar to that of peanut butter…just a tad tastier…

The wood and nut-shells of the argan tree are burned for cooking…the wood is also used decoratively in some of the inlaid boxes…The roots of the argan tree grow deep in search of water…helping to bind the soil and prevent erosion…

Households that make their own argan oil tend to use if for general cooking…Because it is expensive to buy…others may use it more sparingly…flavouring salads

Argan production is still basically a cottage industry…managed largely by women….But many people believe that if the oil became better known it could provide more employment in the region as well as enhancing the environment…

Dandruff is something that occurs out of sheer negligence…yes I mean…I remember the time when I got so busy with work and everything that I did not use to oil my hair (I used to oil my hair every time before a head wash)…

You know the Argan trees have been growing in Morocco for millions of years but the trees and the cottage industry were dying out so UNESCO made the argan forest in South-Western Morocco into a Biosphere Reserve in 1999….another important historical fact…This combines conservation with sustainable resources…Isn’t that amazing to know that they did so much to preserve our dear oil?

As far as the production of this oil is concerned…….Nuts are cracked and squeezed to produce the oil….It used to take several hours to crack enough nuts to produce one litre of oil but now machine presses are increasingly used….So that makes it a lot easier now…

  • Vitamin E
  • Essential fatty acids
  • Plant sterols

Argan oil has twice as much vitamin E as olive oil….The antioxidant Vitamin E is often regarded as having healing and anti-ageing qualities…
