Argan Oil Products

Beware most of the argan oil sold outside of co-operative's are mainly olive oil with argan oil mixed in

There are a lot of Argan Oil Co-operative's on the way to Essaouira.  The one on the way to High Atlas mountains are double priced.

Rabat shop keeper recommendation: I was able to negotiate an excellent price for a tea set and wood carving at Number 105 Souk Sebbat.  The shop is called Bazar Imoukh owned by Abdellah and Lahcen. (Cell: 06 67 14 83 71). The shopkeepers are kind, sincere and friendly and willing to make a good deal.  I dealt with a younger guy in his 20s.  Please give them a visit and tell them you heard about them off of a website by a girl who promised to advertise them.
