Making Argan Oil in Fez

Cracking open the argan nuts

Until recently you would have needed to go to the area around Essaouira to see argan oil being produced. Now, an enterprising Fassi has incorporated a demonstration of the oil production into his cosmetic shop in Fez.

Removing the kernels

The kernels are then ground in the stone mill to produce the oil.

At the moment the shop is so new that it does not even have a name yet. However, to find it, walk from Place Seffarine, pass the tanneries and continue straight ahead. You will find it next to a restaurant on the right hand side.
