Argan Oil: Liquid Gold

argan oil

Argan Oil. It is otherwise known as the golden oil. Many cultures have a long history of  incorporating oil into their beauty and diet regimes. It is a key ingredient in many of the beauty products which we use on a daily basis, but what are its benefits and how are we supposed to use it? I’ve been loving Argan oil for quite some time. Recently, however, I took a closer look at this miracle product and found some interesting facts.

When buying Argan Oil there are several things you should look for:

Many companies use the words “Argan Oil” but unless it says 100% on the package, then chances are that the product contains silicone, dyes or artificial preservatives.

To keep its amazing properties intact, Argan Oil is best kept in dark containers. Also, plastic will speed up its breakdown so a glass bottle is the best.

Unless you are lucky enough to purchase the oil straight from the source, chances are that it won’t be very cheap. Since argan oil comes solely from the nut of the Argan Tree, found only in specific regions of Morocco, it is not mass produced.

The scent should be wonderfully mild and nutty. If it has a strong smell or no smell, then it is most likely over processed.

A good quality oil should absorb quickly into your skin or hair without leaving a residue.  I love applying it to damp hair for that extra boost of shine. It’s also fantastic for taming flyaway hair which is so common during cold winter months. For those of you struggling with a dry scalp, try applying a touch of oil at night. It will absorb overnight and in the morning you can wash your hair as usual.

A drop in the morning and at night has been a lifesaver for my skin, making it more radiant than it has been in years. I’ve also recently started applying it instead of a body lotion. I love how it makes my skin soft and glowing.

When applying Argan Oil to your body or hair, remember a little goes a long way. It’s great for all skin types and in all cases a drop in the palm of your hand will usually do.

There are many wonderful oils that are easily accessible and each has it’s specific strengths. If you are looking for a great all-round miracle worker then this is for you!

  1. Argan oil <3 Switched to argan oil a little while ago and I am not going back, ever. The product is amazing and really does work wonders.

    1. Agreed! The other oil I want to try is Rosehip but I’m having a hard time finding it….
      xo

  2. Haven’t tried Argan oil yet, but deffo should! I have heard it does wonders for hair and my hair could use some.. 😀
    x

    1. It really does and it’s super easy to find. Also, you only need a tiny bit!
      xo

  3. I’ve been looking for a good one for my hair for some time. I didn’t know you could use on your face! Great informative post Caroline!
    x Kirsty

  4. Now I feel I NEED IT!! Gonna look for it!!! 🙂 Great post!! 🙂
    http://dhariascloset.blogspot.com

    1. You do! I think it’s a great addition to any beauty routine.
      xo

  5. I didn’t know you could use it on your skin as well, I must try it. Lately, my skin has been so dry I’ve been using coconut oil and that seems to work well. My husband goes to Kirribati every year and the women there use it in their hair too. I’ve been trying that at night and it works well if you just use a small amount.

    1. Coconut oil is wonderful too! You can definitely use argan oil on your skin. I use it instead of a night cream.
      xo

  6. I’ve read a lot about it and now i must try it!!

    xx

    1. Oh, let me know if you love it!
      xo

  7. I love Argan oil…. great result on my hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Kisses darling!!!!

  8. Oh, hell yes! i love this oil… It is packed with oodles of benefits.
    I use it as a substitute to eye cream, for my lips, my face and the best part is, it is not at all greasy! 🙂

    1. Ha! Great answer, thanks so much for stopping by.
      xo

  9. Love the primavera argan oil, it is such a great little product and I have had it for ages and there is still loads left, a little really does go a long way.

    1. Agreed! I’m loving it.
      xo

  10. I think it’s wise to look for the label to say 100% organic “whatever” oil, just to be sure what you’re actually applying on to your skin. I’m currently using a bottle of almond oil for nails & hands and loving it.
    Argan oil is one of my all time favorites, since it’s just so good for so many different things.

  11. I swear by argan oil too! And you’re right, there are ‘copies’ out there passing off as the real thing and may do more damage than good! x
