My Favorite Things: Argan Oil

82 Flares 82 Flares ×

I’ve raved many times about argan oil both as a cooking oil and it’s properties for skin care. I’ve struggled with sensitive and dry skin my entire life and there are only a small handful of products I can use safely.  Argan oil is one of them. Moroccans have long known about the properties of this oil but only in the last few years has it become a buzzword in the Western beauty industry. Today I’m sharing the love.  I’m giving away some argan because it’s one of my favorite things!

I’ve been fortunate that through blogging I have met some exceptional people.  Joél is one of them. She is the co-owner and co-founder of Saadia Organics.  Aside from her wonderful personality I know she is no snake oil doctor. There are a lot of people selling “pure” argan oil when in reality it’s watered down.  It happens all over Morocco too. But Joél gets her argan straight from the source, her mother-in-law in Essaouaira who grew up making raw argan oil.  How did the business begin? Here’s a backgrounder. But now onto the good stuff!!

Joél is providing a 50mL bottle of argan oil, a kiis and sample of beldi savon noir soap to one lucky MarocMama reader.  This is all you need to have a Moroccan hammam experience at home!  Another friend of mine, Mandy, who happens to live in Marrakech wrote this great article describing the Moroccan hammam experience. Take a read so you’ll know how to take advantage of these goodies if you’re the big winner!

 So are you ready to win?

    I love argan oil too !! it’s my favorite right now, I use the one from pro naturals too and it keeps my hair pretty and healthy. :)

    I’ve been using it now for about 4 months and the difference in my skin is amazing. Lately I’ve also been using it on my body to fight winter dryness. Again – amazing. Free Argan oil would be terrific!

    what excites me most about this giveaway is that Argan Oil is so rare I consider it like liquid gold. My daughter uses it in her hair almost every day and we are getting low. I would LOVE to get a free bottle of liquid gold. Thank you for offering this!!

    I have switched over from using moisturizing lotions to just using oils. They are great and my face has never felt better. I would love to win this!

    I couldn’t agree more! Argan oil is definitely one of my favorite things. I began using argan oil a little over a year ago and my skin has really improved! Is your argan oil certified organic? I used to have sensitive & dry skin myself. I finally found the perfect mix of products (especially for my skin): argan oil and a scrub I found from purelementnaturals.com. The scrub is called “Glow” and it’s oil based as well. Facial oils are the best! I would never go back to using a cream.

    My hairstylist talked me into using some Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner and it’s worked out well – I’m intrigued to try the oil for the skin. I had no idea that you could use it for cooking!
