From the Alchemist’s Workshop – Argan Oil

Watch your step! Watch your step!

Hi, sorry, my name is Evelyn. It’s nice to meet you. Balbo is umm…busy at the moment, may I get you something to drink? Have you need for a room tonight? A hot meal perhaps? Oh, I see, you are here for the Alchemist’s Workshop, aren’t you. Well, you are just in time. In fact, early, now that Balbo spilled a whole barrel of Argan Oil on the floor here. Yes, that’s why I warned you of the puddle there. I wouldn’t want you to ruin those nice leather boots. They sure are fancy, I bet you have all sorts of fancy clothing. Do you come from the big city? Or are you from one of the smaller villages? You have pretty eyes. I bet they have seen many adventures and—

Ho there, friend! Please excuse Evelyn, she is an inquisitive kind. Did she ask you about your latest quest? Or what treasures have you discovered?

I don’t ask strangers that anymore, Balbo!

Ha! No? Well, did you welcome our new friend to The Dragon’s Beard?

Yes. Maybe…no. I was about to.

Well, then. Welcome to the Dragon’s Beard. Today’s studies will include a lesson on Argan Oil. And, yes, as I am sure Evelyn told you, I spilled a barrel of the stuff down the front of me and all over the floor.  Doesn’t it smell nice and nutty?

I think so, Balbo.

Good. Pour us all a round of ale, Evelyn. Let’s start!

What is Argan Oil?

Have you heard of the foreign lands of Morocco? It is often referred to as the Gateway to the continent of Africa. Realms far, far from here, yes. But equally as wonderous, my friend.

In Morrocco, a rare and exquisite plant called Arania spinosa L, has kernels from which Argan oil is produced. Granted, this plant is also found in southwestern Algeria, it is a culinary staple in Morocco.

Argan oil is used for all sorts of things in Morocco. For example, Moroccans will dip bread in it during breakfast, or even have it drizzled lightly on couscous or pasta. Sounds delicious, right?  

But that is not all, Argan oil is used in many cosmetic products and is known to have a multitude of benefits.

What are the benefits of Argan Oil?

Argan oil can help your skin and hair with the following benefits:

  • Provides hydration
  • Increases elasticity and reduces stretch marks
  • Improves burns
  • Enhances manageability
  • Prevents breakage
  • Minimizes breakage
  • Decreases frizz

It is important to note that Argan oil is used in many premium beard care products because of all the reasons above and more.

When using Argan oil on your beard, you will notice that it is softer and has a better shine to it.

Not too shiny, lol; not like a Paladin’s armor, more like a silver coin. Yes, your beard will shine like a silver coin!

Argan oil, like some of the other oils we have discussed in our lessons, will help ward off yucky bearddruff and split ends too. No one wants dreadful problems like those.

Liquid Gold

Argan oil is often called “liquid gold” due to its gorgeous golden hue. It is also a great natural gift to cosmetic companies since it is loaded with unsaturated fatty acids (oleic and linoleic acid) and antioxidants (vitamin E).

What does that mean for you?

Well, for one, the medium-chain fatty acids in argan oil have a shielding effect that can help inhibit damage created by overwashing.

Argan oil protects against styling damage and better yet, damage often caused by free radicals.

Do you know what that means, friend? It means the hairs of your growing beard will break and fall out less! Ho! Fantastic!

With its use, you can hope for a thicker and healthier-looking beard.

Aye, fellow adventurers, Argan oil will help guard you against environmental damage while giving your hair and skin a natural shine. But it will not defend you from the searing heat of a dragon’s fire. No, ha! You will need to do that yourself.

While some research is too new to provide proven results, hopeful studies link Argan oil to the prevention of diabetes, slowing the growth of cancer cells, and boosting heart health. If these things are verified as true in the future, Argan oil will truly become a magical potion.

Do you need to go to Morrocco to get some? Nope!

No need to pack your bags and sail across the great seas. Save your frequent flyer miles, my friends! No, no, no.

A long and arduous journey does not lie ahead of you; not if you seek the benefits of Argan oil here. In fact, Tabletop Beard has all the Argan oil you might need, right here in their premium all-natural beard oils, butters, and balms.

Looking good is feeling good and with ingredients like Argan oil and Tabletop Beard’s products will help you reach your next level and give you a soft beard too!
