Review :: Arganica Organic Argan Oil Infused With Lavender And Frankincense

It's no secret argan oil is hailed as the next best thing since sliced bread.  Arganica is a relatively new brand, the brainchild of Jodie Tassello and Bianca Beldini, licensed acupuncturists with backgrounds in eastern medicine and active practices on the East Coast.  After an adventurous trip a couple years ago the duo had a chance meeting with a medicine man and learn about the wonders of argan oil and the women cooperatives in Morrocco that turn nuts into oil.  The two have put on spin on their oil in which they've combined organic argan oil with therapeutic grade essential oils to create a wonderful facial serum that heals a multitude of sins, evens skins tone, hydrates and nourishes. 

 If you haven't fully embraced the benefits of facial oil consider this:

 + Facial oil is a cost effective because you only use 1-3 drops per application which makes a bottle last for months.  In the Spring/Summer, just 1 drop could very well be enough to moisture your entire face and neck.

+ There is no need for preservatives in a pure natural oil so you don't have to worry about being concerned by the preservative system used like you would with a standard moisturizer/cream.

+ It's very easily absorbed into skin when applied to damp skin, despite what you may have always been told about avoiding putting oil on your face.  Not true!  Oil is great for skin.  Even oily skin.  Even problem skin.  And of course it's great for dry and sensitive skin. 

+ Not just for skin!  Facial oils can also be used on the body...great for cuticles and hair too!  

It's not by chance that two powerful essential oils lavendula angustfolia {lavender}and boswellia carteri {frankincense} were selected to be mixed in Arganica's argan oil.  Both these essential oils have wonderful healing properties with research from peer reviewed studies to back them up. 

I love that this oil contains only three ingredients, albeit powerful ones, and that Arganica oil is beneficial for all skin types.  The aroma is hebaceous but that quickly disappates after application.  After several weeks of application my skin was more even, rough patches (thank you winter) were a thing of the past and I experienced not one breakout or blemish while using it.  If you are on the hunt for a great moisturizer, be sure to check this out!

Sidenote: We've both seen first hand how argan oil has the power to eradicate skin issues like eczema.  I've given it to a friend with eczema and within a week it was substantially reduced and my sister used it on her son when he was an infant to get rid of his one-time eczema breakout.  We were both surprised at such quick results.

Bonus points: Bianca (Arganica Co-Founder) voluntarily sent me a copy of their organic cert from EcoCert.  That impressed me because I usually have to ask and sometimes its like pulling teeth.  I appreciate when its not a chore or struggle to get the info and they get extra props for that!
