Post image for Grow Longer & Stronger Hair With Argan Oil

If hair could grow at the snap of our fingers, that would be a miracle… Read more »

Jan Blom -Feb 12, 2015, 6:02AM The trees you see in this video are argania spinosa, the famous argan trees that only grow in a semi desert area in the South Western part of Morocco. It is a very special kind of tree. Its roots go as deep as 50 metres into the soil and it can live to become 250 to 500 years old. It is also one of the oldest species of trees in the world, a living leftover of the Eocene era, some 25 million years ago. The fruit looks a bit like olive but it is unfit for human consumption. But the seed kernels inside the nut contain an oil that has been used by the local berber population for thousands of years for cooking and cosmetic purposes. Today, the available quantity is limited and the production process is lengthy and tedious. This production process begins with the goats who love the fruits so much that they taught themselves to climb the trees so they can reach them. The goats have no use for the nuts, which are much too hard to crack. They either spit or shit them out. The Berber farmers collect these nuts from the ground and clean them. And then the women can begin their tedious job of cracking the nuts and collecting the kernels. It takes these women 20 hours of work to crack the nuts of one tree which produces 1 litre of oil. By Moroccan standards, these women earn a decent wage of around 50 dollars per week. The women here do their work in a dark shed in the village of Tiout in the foothills of the Atlas mountains. Slightly higher paid are these women who are members of a production Coop in Essaouira, a beautiful old town on the coast North of Agadir. They also have better working conditions than the villagers Finally, the kernels are ground into a brownish paste which other women squeeze with their bare hands to extract the last drops of oil. In recent years, argan oil has been discovered by the international cosmetics industry because of its reputation for rejuvenating the skin. Argan oil is called liquid gold because it is sold on the international market for prices upwards of $300,- per litre. Processed by the cosmetics industry into products for skin care and bottled in small quantities in luxurious packaging, the price per litre of the final product sometimes exceeds 2000,- dollars per litre. But in the shop of Manahill Souss in souk El Had in Agadir, the purest argan oil is produced right in front of you and sold for such a low price, that you always have to stand in a long line of waiting Moroccan customers before you are being served.

This is a different level of wall designing. Very artistic and minimalistic. Who would that those old pictures on our drawers and those stuffs we often ignore in our house can be useful in this way. Its whole new level of creativity. I will definitely note this as one my future projects, Thank you so much for sharing :)

Post image for Make Your Own Lotion Bars For Smooth Autumn Skin

I made the switch from lotion to oil about a year ago, but I have to admit, there are times when I miss the ease of using regular old body lotion. Read more »

Such a lovely post and an inspiring idea! I tried to make these some time ago but they melted too easily… Should I have been using more wax? I guess I'll give it another go and experiment with different oils too! Thank you x
Jaimie -Jan 05, 2015, 11:44PM
I just made these and they are amazing! I'm obsessed. So easy to make and I smell like chocolate from the cocoa butter! I tried adding lavender, but I can't really smell it. Will experiment and try to get the right amount for next time. I want to make these and send them to everyone I know. Thanks!

Love this: "Life is too short to limit yourself to one thing if your dream is to do more!" And this: "Being free means being yourself. Embracing all that you are and all that you could be. Letting your hair down and running after every spark of inspiration that floats through your mind, no matter how silly it may look and no matter what anyone else thinks." !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
