    Argan oil was first used for culinary purposes in Morocco.

     

    For thousands of years, women used to make it a culinary oil and use it medicinally, topically for arthritis complaints and to treat burns.

    But the culinary version of argan oil is made by cracking open the argan nuts from the argan tree fruit to get the kernels, we roast the kernels first, which are then cold-pressed by machine to get argan oil.
