Casablanca Market Moroccan Organic Culinary Argan Oil, Glass Bottle

$39.95

Argan trees grow only in Morocco, on a narrow strip of desert between Marrakesh and Essaouira.  They can survive incredibly harsh conditions where few other trees can, and the process for extracting their oil is highly labor-intensive. Most of this work is done by women farmworkers who must manually displace the fruit from the thorny tree branches, remove the flesh, and then crack the internal kernel with a rock to extract the precious oil. It's been said that it takes 15 hours of labor to produce one liter of Argan oil.

Casablanca Market is proud to play a key part in supporting these native women workers, as the results of their labor yield a wonderful nutty-flavored culinary delight, packed with powerful medicinal qualities.  One of Katia's favorite childhood dishes is roasted green and red peppers, punctuated with cumin, salt, lemon, and lots of Argan oil.  Her mother told her that God must love our land a tad more to make the Argan tree exclusive only to Morocco.

Argan oil has long been regarded as a superfood that strengthens the immune system, stabilizes blood sugar, and is even used topically for burn and arthritis relief.
