Hi everyone! Today I’ll be sharing with you a surprising product that helps relieve my muscle and back pain. Morrocan Argan Oil. Yup! Surprised?
HAHAHAHA ITO NA! SA MGA NAGTATANONG! Yung super effective na nakapagbigay ginhawa sa chronic back pain ko! Surprisingly walang anghang OMG T_T buti sinubukan ko.. Makapagpahid nga bago matulog 🙂
Years of using a computer and carrying it on my backpack has taken its toll on my body. Especially my upper back, neck, and shoulders. It’s almost weekly that I visit a massage therapist to relieve the pain somehow, but it just keeps going back. And it’s getting costly too. I’ve also tried almost every muscle ointment in the market today. Could it be the warmth spice that’ giving us the relief? Or is it placebo?
It’s not until I discovered that beyond the numerous skincare uses of pure Moroccan Argan Oil, it also serves as an anti-inflammatory agent that helps relieve muscle pain without the spice. Watch my video below to find out ways I use this miraculous oil!

What is Argan Oil?
Argan Oil, one of the rarest and most expensive oils in the world, contains numerous benefits as a miracle ingredient that not only protects and nourishes your skin, but reverses environmental damage, wrinkles and premature aging.
17 Remarkable Benefits & Uses Of Argan Oil
1. Relieving Arthritic and Rheumatic Conditions
The oil is considered highly beneficial for arthritic or rheumatic conditions. Flavonoids present in Argan oil have powerful anti-inflammatory properties which can be used to treat both external and internal problems, including relieving the pain and swelling of arthritis. Argan oil contains a high level of triterpenoids, in particularly butyrospermol, which are important, biologically active compounds that well known for their anti-inflammatory benefits. Its high linoleic acid content increases the production of prostaglandins 1, which are known to help rheumatologic conditions too.
For relief from sore muscles and joints, massage a few drops of pure Argan oil into your skin over the affected area.
2. Healing Acne
The triterpenoids naturally found in Argan oil offer amazing health benefits for skin including the treatment of mild acne and the healing of acne-related scarring. It’s also been proven in studies to lower sebum levels in those with oily skin, reducing greasiness and improving overall appearance.
For stubborn areas, place a few drops of Argan oil into the palm of your hand and lightly dab it on.
2. Fight Dermatitis
Eczema or atopic dermatitis is a common skin condition characterized by inflamed and itchy patches of skin, and as Argan oil is well-known to be extremely effective for reducing rashes and itchiness, it can minimize dermatitis flare-ups like eczema by hydrating the skin so that it can better perform its barrier function. The oil contains essential fatty acids like oleic acid, linoleic acid, and omega-3 fatty acids to help lock moisture in the skin and protect cell integrity.
3. Reduces Premature Aging
As mentioned, Argan oil contains a high level of fatty acids, in fact, it is comprised of roughly 80% fatty acids which work wonders to erase signs of premature aging. That’s why Moroccans have famously used it for preventing premature aging and its signs, such as crows feet and wrinkles. Regular use of Argan oil has been proven to reduce the depth and severity of wrinkles, as well as to fade age spots by restoring skin’s youthful elasticity and by increasing the regenerative rate of healthy skin cells.
4. Eliminating Razor Bumps
Razor bumps are not only unsightly, they’re uncomfortable and sometimes even painful, especially if you shave and slather on sunscreen. Argan oil can help soothe and heal those razor bumps for both men and women, after shaving your legs and bikini line, or your face. Just warm up a few drops of the oil in the palm of your hands and gently massage it into the affected area. You may also notice that the number of ingrown hairs are reduced as well.
5. Protects Against Environmental Damage
Applying Argan oil to UV damaged skin can actually fade sun spots and heal the dry leathery skin that results from overexposure to UV by promoting the regeneration of healthy cells.
6. Improves Skin Appearance
Even if you don’t you have skin problems like acne, eczema, wrinkles or scarring, you can take advantage of Argan oil to improve your skin’s appearance, making it soft and supple. The saponins in Argan oil help to reactivate the skin cells’ ability to regenerate, keeping your largest and most important bodily organ healthy and strong.
7. Lowers Cholesterol
Culinary-grade Argan oil, when used as a substitute for other less-healthy oils in the diet can help to lower bad cholesterol levels. The unique combination of plant sterols found in the oil – schottenol and spinasterol – actually block the absorption of bad cholesterol from inside the intestinal tract.
8. Aids Digestion
Culinary grade Argan oil contains organic compounds that when added to food increases pepsin concentration in the body’s gastric juices, thus improving digestion. Pepsin is an important enzyme in gastric juice that digests proteins found in meat, eggs and dairy products. Better digestion means more energy, less hunger, improved weight loss, and an all around healthier body.
10. Prevents Stretch Marks
The healing power of Argan oil on the skin doesn’t stop with aging and cancer treatments. This miracle oil can also be used to prevent stretch marks from pregnancy, pubescent growth of hips and mammaries, or from rapid weight gain by softening and strengthening skin. It works by helping to improve the elasticity of the skin and keeping it hydrated, which makes stretch marks less likely to form. Apply it by warming a few drops in the palm of your hands and gently rubbing it onto areas like the hips, thighs, and stomach where they’re likely to develop.
11. Repairs Split Ends
When applied to hair, Argan oil prevents drying and environmental damage by coating the hair shaft. The oil seals in moisture and smooths flyaways, making hair more manageable and less prone to breakage from brushing and styling. Argan oil can also help to seal in colorants such as henna and amla, increasing the length of time between colorings. Rich in Vitamin-E, Argan oil nourishes hair, repairing split ends, and increases hair’s shine and overall healthy appearance.
12. Curing Dry, Brittle Hair
In addition to using Argan oil as a leave-in conditioner to repair split ends and prevent frizz, if your hair is dry and brittle you can use it as an overnight deep conditioning treatment to leave your hair soft and moisturized. To do so, warm 5 to 10 drops in the palm of your hands and then massage it into your scalp. Continue to apply it throughout your hair, all the way to your ends, and then twist your hair up and put a shower cap over it. The shower cap helps to retain your natural body heat so that the oil penetrates your hair, and it also helps to keep your pillowcase free of oil. In the morning, simply wash your hair as you normally would, rinsing well to make sure all oil residue is washed away.
Repeat once a week, or if you have dandruff or dry scalp, do this twice each week until the problem is gone.
13. Protect Your Hair From Heat Styling
Unlike many styling agents which can cause long term damage to hair due to the many chemicals contained within, Argan oil helps to enrich the hair and nourish it with nutrients to repair the damage. Before using any styling tools, apply 2 to 3 drops of Argan oil using your hand, palm first. Then use a brush or comb to distribute it evenly throughout your hair from roots to tips which coats it with the oil, keeping it protected from heat damage.
14. Treat Hair Loss
It works by ensuring that you don’t lose more follicles than you’re able to grow – when that happens, hair loss becomes noticeable. A number of studies on the oil’s effect on hair re-growth have found that it can stimulate the scalp due to its rich nutrient content to produce more hair. Some research has also indicated that it helps hair grow faster in a shorter period of time.
15. Strengthens Nails
When applied to the fingernails and toenails, Argan oil helps to promote stronger, healthier nails naturally, thanks to its high levels of vitamin-E. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities of Argan oil may also help to fight off nail and skin infections associated with poor nail health.
The oil makes an excellent non-greasy moisturizer for the nails and cuticles. To use it, be sure to remove all nail polish first and then rinse thoroughly. Place just a fraction of a drop on each nail one at a time, and then rub it into the cuticle and nail bed. Leave it on until you’ve finished treating all of your nails and then wash thoroughly. The oil helps to condition your nails while keeping the cuticles moisturized to prevent painful hangnails.
16. Heal Dry, Cracked Feet
Dry, cracked skin on the feet and/or heels can not only be uncomfortable, it can make you want to hide them, even when the weather is warm and crying out for that cute pair of sandals. Fortunately, Argan oil can help. Rub a few drops onto your feet, paying close attention to those rough areas. If your skin is very dry, you may need to add a little more in order to completely moisturize them. Afterwards, don’t rinse. Leave the oil on and cover up your feet with a pair of socks so that it can soak in. Leave them on for at least 30 minutes, but ideally, overnight. You’ll be amazed at how they look and feel in the morning!
Where To Buy Pure Moroccan Argan Oil
When using Argan oil for topical purposes, such as applying to skin or hair, you want to look for cold-pressed, responsibly sourced, additive free Argan oil. I only trust Magic Potions’ Moroccan Argan Oil. It’s not 100% pure because they added a hint of citrus to make it smell pleasant (which I love).
You can buy White Allure Pure Moroccan Argan Oil at Magic Potions or Lazada Philippines for 32USD or 1,200php. It’s 100ml so super worth it!
