All about Argan Oil 
I have used and tried a lot of fixed oils in Aromatherapy. I like many for different reasons (you can read about these in my last blog, Scents, Salves & Supplements Stunning Skin.
Making Argan Oil

Argan oil is the latest oil I have tried and I am most impressed with it. I use it straight as well as a base for Aromatherapy treatments. In my last post I gave you a brief description: Made from the kernels of the Argan tree, this oil is fabulous for skin, hair and scalp. This oil can be used on the face as it does not clog skin like heavy oils can. It is great to heal burns and eczema. To moisturize your scalp and wash away flakes, massage Argan oil into your scalp at least an hour before you shampoo it out. You can also easily get rid of frizzies, by rubbing a drop in your hands and then smoothing it onto the frizzy spots of your hair. 

Argan oil is unique from other fixed oils; it is known as a dry oil. This means it will sink in your skin or hair completely and not leave a greasy feel. Now, of course if you pour on more than your skin or hair can absorb at once it can feel greasy. Here is how to use it.

  • Use a few drop Argan oil s as a leave-in conditioner to give hair shine, bounce, manageability, moisture, and eliminate frizz. Rub a few drops in the palms of your hands and then over your hair. 
  • You can put liberal amounts on skin that is healing from
    burns, eczema, dermatitis, and other imperfections. See, Scents, Salves & Supplements Stunning Skin to read more about which essential oils to use in skincare.
  • You can rub a bit on skin after bathing while still a little wet to get a small amount of this healing oil all over your body. It give your skin a bit of shine and healing moisture.
  • You can use a small amount of this oil on your face. I use it under my eyes, on my lips, and on any spots that need more moisture. It gives my face a healthful glow and makes small lines look less visible.    
  •  Use on dry hands for quick relief. Rub into your nails and
    cuticles to keep them hydrated.
  •   Rub liberal amounts of Argan oil into your scalp before you
    shampoo. I put extra on a stubborn spot of dermatitis on my scalp. I often massage in more once the original amount soaks in. I tend to leave it on about 3 or 4 hours while I am doing household chores before washing out with my homemade shampoo (Click on the blog, My Favorite Homemade Soap/Shampoo and Shaving Foam Recipe to learn how to make it). This is great to get rid of flakes and keep them away for awhile. It also encourages hair growth.
  •  When adding essential oils that benefit your skin and hair to your Argan Oil, start with 5-10 drops of essential oil per ounce of Argan oil you use. Less on more sensitive skin.
