How (and Why!) to Use Argan Oil for Skin Care

Sometimes when people decide to start using all-natural skin care products, it can take a little time to find “the right one.”

That makes sense—everyone’s skin is different.

And that’s why I’m so excited about today’s blog post. I want to tell as many people as possible about using argan oil for skin care!

I know that some people want to avoid putting oil on their skin, having experienced products that feel greasy or clog pores, but argan oil is different. Here’s a little information about it from my book, The Heart of Aromatherapy: An Easy-to-Use Guide for Essential Oils.
