5. Anti-Inflammatory Compounds

You wouldn’t think of it since most people believe that this incredibly healthy oil is only for your hair, but Argan oil is loaded with anti-inflammatory compounds that can work both internally and externally. Argan oil can be used as a massage oil on aching joints or sore muscles. For ladies who suffer from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, bladder problems,  unexplained weight gain, and poor digestion, consuming a tablespoon or two of culinary grade Argan oil can help to stop inflammation from the inside of the body, which can ease pain.

 

6.  Fights Chronic Health Problems

Numerous studies show that Argan oil can help fight the damage that free radicals cause. Free radicals are the main cause of premature aging, chronic health problems such as arthritis, as well as damaging our DNA. Argan oil can even help to protect you from certain types of cancer such as prostate cancer, colon cancer, and cancer of the bladder. Inflammation can also lead to cancerous growths throughout the body, both internally and externally in the form of skin cancer. Argan oil has been shown to offer protection from all these concerns.

7. Super Skin Toner

One important step in everyone’s skin care routine is skin toning. Add 2 to 4 drops to every 8 ounces of your favorite skin toner for a flawless complexion. You can also make your own non-toxic, all natural skin toner by steeping one cup of green tea for 10 minutes. Strain the tea or remove the tea bag and allow to cool. Add two drops of orange, lemon, or rosemary essential oil and 4 drops of Argan oil. Shake well before each use. Apply to your clean face with a clean cotton ball each morning and night just before you apply your moisturizer. Try this healthy, all natural toner just once and you will never go back to those commercial type toners ever again.

 

8.  Super Exfoliating

You don’t need to spend a fortune to look great. Whip up your own homemade exfoliator using Argan oil for bright skin that uses all of the benefits in the anti-aging power in Argan oil. Mix 1 tablespoon of brown sugar along with 3 or 4 drops of Argan oil. Rub this mixture in your palms first, and then gently rub it on your face using a circular motion for one minute. Rinse with lukewarm water. Repeat once each week for beautiful skin your friends will be jealous of!
