Moroccan Trip 2014: Argan Oil
Goats in trees? Only in Morocco! Buzz took this photo during our recent buying on the road from Marrakech to Essaouira. We traveled with our friend and wood supplier, Khalil, who happened to be friends with the goatherds there. The goats actually scamper up low branches of the argan tree (Argania Spinosa) to reach the tree's fruit. The popular cosmetic ingredient, argan oil, is pressed from the argan tree nut. I love the luxurious argan oil - makes hair shiny and healthy-looking and skin soft - and have been using it for a couple of years. During this trip, we ordered pure organic argan oil from the women's Cooperatives Targanine, which will soon be available on our site.
