TOP 5 Health Benefits of ARGAN OIL

Argan oil is produced from the kernels of the argan tree and is said to have many healing properties and alternative uses. Although some of these have never been scientifically proven it doesn’t mean these natural ingredients won’t work for you.


  1. Anti-inflammatory

Although argan oil has not been scientifically proven to treat skin conditions such as eczema or acne, its anti-inflammatory properties may be beneficial for those suffering with conditions such as this. It may be used to calm down the skin and reduce the pain and irritation.

  1. Moisturising the skin

Argan oil reduces oiliness of the skin through its sebum reducing capabilities. So for those who have naturally more oily skin this may be beneficial when used as a soap or scrub.

  1. Anti-oxidants

This is not supported by any major scientific proof and would need to be researched more however due to the anti-oxidant characteristics of argan oil it may decrease would healing times when taken in a tablet form. This could be especially useful oil for those who have a weakened immune system through either illness or harsh treatment, or for the elderly who may struggle to heal after injury.

  1. Anti-ageing

Argan oil has a property to increase the elasticity of the skin and therefore reduce the effects of ageing on the skin, making the skin feel light.

  1. Reduces stretch marks

The Natural Life

Welcome to my blog, where I will be sharing of my experiences of my discovery of the natural world, and peel back the fast-paced society that we now live in. Breaking life down to its core, to show off the natural world. On a journey to discover what we can do with the elements we were first given, embrace a more natural and homemade life and to see the worlds most untouched patches.

My aim is to educate myself in what I can do to make my life more homemade using natural ingredients and get the most of the health benefits the earth has handed us. Although I am studying as a Student Paramedic, I do believe that treatments other than medications should be used in conjunction to treat patients and their wellbeing.

Starting by looking into homemade soaps and the health benefits of using natural ingredients over some harsher chemicals that are used in the cosmetics industry; by the end of my research I will hopefully be able to make my own. Eventually I hope to expand to review methods being used currently to make our world more sustainable with the aim to retain some of its natural beauty.
