Argan Oil has been used by the Berber of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco for centuries. Until recently, Argan oil has been a well-kept secret by the Berber people of Morocco who have cooked with it for centuries. It has been nicknamed ‘liquid gold’ for its multiple health benefits.
Taken internally it has been proven to lower blood pressure and cholesterol and most impressively it has been documented as cancer-protective.
The production of argan oil and its by-products is the preserve of the Berber women, and the techniques of argan oil extraction are based on traditional knowledge that has been passed from mothers to daughters of Berber families down the centuries.
