Making Homemade Soap Using Argan Oil
Morocco takes pride in being the source of very popular organic oil coming from a tree called Argania Spinosa. This tree bears a fruit that can be compared to olive although it is rounder and bigger. It contains three kernels shaped like almonds. When goats eat this fruit, they leave the nut and this is collected for the production of argan oil.
The process of producing argan oil can be very rigid because the nuts have to be cracked so that the kernels can be removed. The total number of hours that can be spent can vary from twelve to twenty hours just to produce a liter of this oil. This is the reason why this oil is a bit expensive compared to other types of oil. When the oil has been extracted, you are ready to derive from it the benefits of carotenes, Vitamin E, essential fatty acide, squalene and phenolic acid. These are helpful in the prevention of inflammation and in nourishing and moisturizing the skin. This is what makes it best for the production of homemade soap. When it is blended with lavender oil, the resulting soap can moisturize the skin.
For great aroma, it can be also used with jojoba oil. Further, if you want to produce a soap that can be used for treating skin infections, you can use argan oil combined with tea tree oil. There are other variations for the production of soap with argan oil. For the treatment of scalp problems, it can be combined with lavender and rosemary oils. Because of the effectiveness of this oil, it should be used sparingly in the preparation of specific soap products. You are assured of a great product that can produce great benefits for your skin and even your hair. This is why many rely on this oil for making their skin smoother and younger.
