The argan tree is an endemic tree found in Morocco. The green nuts produced by this tree makes it so special and sought after. These green nuts are used to extract argan oil. This oil is one of the rare types of oil. The production of this oil is limited to just a few regions where these trees grow. Thus, leading to high demand of product with limited supply options. Argan oil, therefore comes under the list of one of the highly priced oils in the world. This makes one wonder about the benefits that makes it one of the most desired oil commercially. It is known to have properties that cures many cosmetic as well as medical ailments.
The oil is traditionally produced by hand, by stripping the nuts off their soft pulp and then drying them under the sun. These dried nuts are then cracked open using stones to remove the seeds that are roasted to give a rich, nutty flavor to the oil. These roasted seeds are added to little water and ground into a thick paste. This paste is squeezed by hand resulting in extraction of the oil. It is said to take over 10 hours a day to extract just around a liter of this precious oil. Today, modern methods for harvesting using machines are put into action for large-scale production. This oil has a shelf life of about just 3 to 6 months. These complex extraction methods and short shelf life makes the oil expensive and rare.
