Villa Jerada Organic Toasted Argan Oil

250 ml Bottle - Morocco

Argan oil
Gold of Morocco!

In the arid, near-desert landscape of the southern Atlas Mountains of Morocco grows the ancient Argan Tree. The thorny tree, sole species of the genus Argania, yields a pulpy fruit, beloved mainly by goats, containing a hard kernel; within each kernel are just a very few seeds. And in the heart of each seed is oil: an oil coveted throughout the world.

The Argan Tree grows only in southwestern Morocco, and for generations, Argan oil was virtually unknown elsewhere. But as Morocco becomes recognized for its amazing food, the secret has come out about this amazing oil. Not quite like any other oil, this cold-pressed argan oil is a nutty, lightly toasty, richly flavored yet light-bodied oil that's high in essential unsaturated fatty acids.

Argan oil - the hidden gem in skin preservation and a wonderful preservation of our inner being.

Is it hype or truth?

What is true is that a little goes a long way. Use as a dab on your face or as a finish to a salad, Argan oil has the power to change.

Not only can it be used to rejuvenate your skin and make you look good, Argan oil has shown to reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering blood pressure and reducing cholesterol.

Some initial testing has shown that this "liquid gold" may reverse the metabolic changes that occur from high sugar diet, to naturally fight diabetes, and with its high levels of antioxidants it has shown initially that argan oil may retard the growth of many of the cancer cells associated with prostate cancer.

That's a pretty impressive list of potential goodness packed in an oil. Now, it is important to understand there is no scientific evidence or studies that we can point to "prove" these claims. And don't conclude that if a little amount is good, a whole bottle a day is better. It's not.

Use Argan oil sparingly for culinary use, and the results will be extra special. Argan oil when combined with almonds invigorates both nuts into a wonderful amlou (recipe) that is a treat on bread. When it comes to greens, argan oil makes for an inspired change in your vinaigrette.

Called liquid gold, called a miracle oil, with claims as big as curing the world's issues, Argan Oil is good for acne, stretch marks, age lines, dry, dull, or frizzy hair, Eczema and Psoriasis; it's food for the skin. Here, we just think about it as food for our soul.
