Practical Magic: Josie Maran Organic Argan Oil

I am in love with Josie Maran Organic Argan Oil. The type of love that prompted me to rush out and snag two more bottles to ensure I never (ever) run out.

What’s so great about it? You can use the oil as your daily moisturizer, as a treatment for split ends, to condition cuticles, as a body moisturizer, to soothe rough patches of skin on the elbows and knees, to soften feet or as a bath oil. Honestly, you can use it for just about everything.

My favorite use — and one that I consider life changing — is as a hair moisturizer. I have naturally wavy hair that is often dry and frizzy if I don’t overload it with product and spend 30 minutes blow drying. Put about five to six drops of Josie Maran’s Organic Argan Oil in your palm, rub your hands together and run the oil through your ends. Even without blow drying, the oil completely changed the texture and look of my hair. It was soft, shiny and frizz free. Believe me, I’ve tried every hair oil, serum and gloss out there. This is not your typical oil. It’s pure magic.

So what is Argan oil and why did it take me so long to discover it? A superior source of antioxidants, vitamin E and essential fatty acids, Argan oil nourishes and protects skin and hair by keeping cells functioning at their optimal levels. It helps combat free radical damage, protects skin from the environment, controls sebum production and reduces hyperpigmentation. All-natural and 100% organic, Aragan oil is produced from the Argan tree in Morocco. Apparently, it’s been used by Moroccan women for centuries for its nutritional and cosmetic benefits — and for good reason!

With my new found love of this oil, I also decided to give Josie Maran Argan Color Stick a go. The Argan-oil infused color stick is a sheer tint that gives lasting, natural-looking color to cheeks and lips. All shades are designed to flatter every skin tone; the Dusty Rose is my favorite.
