Argan oil - the liquid gold of Morocco

Argan oil is considered the liquid oil of Morocco. But why is it so precious and why is it so highly valued outside of Morocco? We'll tell you what this special oil is all about.

The argan tree (Argania spinosa) grows exclusively in the southwest Morocco and plays an important role in Berber culture. Everything about it is used: the wood is used as building material and as firewood, the nutritious leaves are used to feed goats and dromedaries. And the nuts are used to produce the precious argan oil, which is highly valued both in nutrition and in personal care .

An argan tree only bears fruit every two years. Harvesting the argan fruit is difficult: the Berbers have to wait until the fruit falls to the ground by itself.
