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…

Argan Oil Frees You From The Pain Of Hemorrhoids

I used to hear this ‘weird’ spelling word in my childhood and used to think how do people learn the spelling of it…and when I grew up a little more…I wondered what it meant…Finally when I got to know what this word was…what it meant…and what was it all about…I felt sympathetic towards the ones suffering…

Because I had heard my aunts discuss the problem…they used to complain of excruciating and incapacitating pain because of this disease…and used to consume dozens of capsules and tablets to treat it…

Even today…being an absolute nature’s being…I am averse to the idea of using anything unnatural to cure the problems of something that itself is nature’s most magnificent and magical machine…the human body….

I believe…When our body is an integral part of nature…then why resort to artificial medicines to cure its ills…I don’t know how many of you know this and how many of you don’t…but the answers to each and every ills of our body are encrypted on some or the other natural plant…tree…or herb…

Like for the problem of Hemorrhoids…Nature offers its best…Argan tree…

Hemorrhoids…more commonly referred to as…Piles…are basically swollen and inflamed veins around the anus or in the lower rectum….I Am sure you don’t know what rectum is…hmm…I’ll explain…rectum is the last part of the large intestine leading to the anus….Now..anus c’mon you ought to know…you know…from where you excrete!

Okay…there are two types of haemorrhoids…

  1. External haemorrhoids
  2. Internal haemorrhoids

External hemorrhoids are located under the skin around the anus…Whereas…Internal hemorrhoids develop in the lower rectum….

The problem is mainly created by the internal ones…Internal hemorrhoids may protrude…or prolapsed…through the anus…Most prolapsed hemorrhoids shrink back inside the rectum on their own….Severely prolapsed hemorrhoids may protrude permanently and require treatment….

Be sure the problem is of haemorrhoids whenyou notice bright red blood on stool…on toilet paper…or in the toilet bowl after a bowel movement…Internal hemorrhoids that are not prolapsed are usually not painful….Prolapsed…I mean the external…hemorrhoids often cause pain…discomfort…and anal itching…Excessive straining…rubbing….cleaning around the anus may make symptoms…such as itching and irritation…worse….So…be careful while dealing with it…

Finally something to ease you down…See…it is a well known fact that Hemorrhoids are not dangerous or life threatening….Also the symptoms usually go away within a few days…

But…what you have to do on your part is….Go the natural way to treat it…and discover long-term benefits…getting back to its cure…Argan oil…

Argan oil is possibly the best remedy to cure hemorrhoids….Just that you will have to be regular in the application of this magical oil…
One thing you need to etch on your mind is that…when using argan oil…do NOT use any chemical based medicine else the reaction can be deadly…when going natural…go the complete way…
Here’s what you are required to do…Apply small test doses of argan oil to your skin before full application….
Before putting the oil treatments onto the hemorrhoid area…be sure to apply a small amount to a different sensitive part of the skin…such as the inside of the elbow area…This is important for preventing any reactions….And also note that if your current diet lacks fiber…or if you do not drink enough water on a daily basis….constipation and hard stools can cause or aggravate a hemorrhoid…Healing is difficult when still suffering from constipation or painful stools…so taking water soluble fiber or drinking more water may be needed….Eating more vegetables…especially dark green colors like spinach and kale…that too cooked well in argan oil…will also help with hemorrhoids by softening the stool….
