Argan oil is not well known for being an oil that you can eat! It's more popular for its benefits for your hair and skin, but in fact Moroccans have been eating and cooking with it for centuries. And with good reason. It has a delicious soft nutty flavour and is super healthy for you too!

Packed with micronutrients like polyphenols, antioxidants like tocopherols (vitamin E) and many essential fatty acids (such as linoleic and oleic), argan oil has many proven benefits to your health, as well as for your hair and skin. It can be used in SO many different ways in both cooking, haircare and skincare, it is really one of those must have, multi-use household and kitchen essentials. It is worth noting that the culinary and beauty argan oils are slightly different. In the making of culinary argan oil, the kernels are roasted before being cold-pressed to bring out the nutty flavour.
