Don't buy here. Triple prices than other places. Wait till Essaouira where you can buy same thing for 3 times less price !!!!! They show you how oil is made to attract you buying it.

It was a good experience to see the whole process of producing the Argan oil. You get to see it all close up and it was amazing how many products are available. From oil to lotions to honey. They will also ship your purchases.

My education is clearly lacking - While every woman in our tour group was quite familiar with Argan oil, I had never heard of it. The visit was fascinating. We first received a demonstration of the manual process needed to extract the oil. Since attempts...More
