Benefits of Argan Oil for Hair & Skin: The Gold of Morocco
Argan oil isn't called "the gold of Morocco" for nothing! It's fantastic for skin and hair. The argan fruit grows on the argan tree in Morocco. The fruit has a peel which has a nut-like hard shell. Lots of work to get to the magical fruit. Even the Moroccan goats climb the trees to eat this magical nut.

How To Use Argan Oil For Your Skin

I use argan oil as my moisturizer on my face and apply it night & day. Just one or two drops is all you need. Argan oil is a lightweight oil and my skin soaks it up beautifully without leaving a greasy residue. After I apply it during the day, I let it sit at least 5 minutes before applying makeup. If needed,  I wipe my face with a dry washcloth to remove any residual argan oil. If it's too oily for your skin to use during the day, you will still experience benefits using it as a nighttime moisturizer. 

For added skin health and glow, add about 30 drops of essential oils to your argan oil bottle. Bonus:: Many of the same essential oils that your hair loves, your skin loves, too! You can use the same essential oils you used for your hair, add a couple of these essential oils to your argan bottle, or have 2 different argan oil bottles with different essential oil combos -- 1 for hair and 1 for skin. Here are a few additional essential oils that your face will love:
