Argan oil throws Moroccan women a new lifeline...

It didn't take a long time to learn what Argan Oil was. 
Argan Oil is Moroccan GOLD!

Are you interested how much this costs...
140 dirhams = 12,67 eur or 15.95 usd

I'm going to be beautiful forever! :)

UNESCO, and people excited by the oil's reputed anti-aging qualities have helped by creating a global market for the exotic oil, the unlikely alliance hopes to raise awareness about the inherent value of the trees, encouraging more careful grazing and stopping the local population from chopping the trees down for firewood. The people in the area are poor, as they now understand the value of the tree, they are protecting it.
UNESCO declared a 25,900-square-kilometer of land between the Atlantic and the Atlas Mountains and provided money to manage the trees' preservation. Chefs and society matrons took up the cause, praising the culinary qualities of the oil and its anti-aging effect on the skin. There is also a ban against grazing in the trees from May to August, when the fruit ripens to a bright yellow and eventually the goats climb the trees, eat the fruit and expel the pits, which locals continue to collect.

Read more in Wikipedia (it's very interesting!)


Inside an Argan oil cooperative




Making Argan oil in Agadir, Morocco

Argan Oil Society/Mission Of The Argan Oil Society

The Argan Oil Society is commited to educating and improving the lives of all those that care about the look and health of their face, hair and body. It is our goal to tell everyone about this still unknown miracle oil.

"The oil, which is said to have restorative and age-defying effects, has become one of the latest miracle ingredients in the beauty industry."
- The New York Times



Argan oil throws Moroccan women a new lifeline





To make sure that you've got a genuine 100% raw oil, 
read the label carefully to verify the following points:
- When buying from Morocco make sure that the name of the cooperatives that produced it is displayed
- Beauty products should be made from cosmetic grade, 
since culinary grade is produced from roasted nuts to give it the distinctive nutty flavor
- Seek "all-natural" and preferably certified organic
- "First cold-pressed". That means that the oil has not been heated over a certain temperature (usually 80 degrees F)
- Fairly-Trade Argan Oil
- Choose a dark colored UV-protected glass bottle, and not a plastic container
- 100% pure argan oil has a distinctive color, if you are sensitive to its natural smell, opt for a deodorized product
- If mixed with other ingredients, check them (e.g. acetic acid is thought to diminish natural properties of argan oil). Google them.

Acetate in my cream - oh yeah...that's it! But can you make cream like this without adding acetate? There must be a reason for it!
Next time I google before I buy!

more women...

'women...' was posted here 6.7.2010 - they were inside but these women...
oh, they stand outside and they rock! You agree?! :)



My advice to those who think they have to take off their clothes to be a 
star is, once you're boned, what's left to create the illusion? Let em wonder. 
I never believed in giving them too much of me.
- Mae West


Every woman is a rebel, and usually in wild revolt against herself.
- Oscar Wilde

For any woman to success in American life she must first do two things: 
Prepare herself for a profession, and marry a man who wants her to succeed 
as much as she does.
- Cathleen Douglas


Figure out who you are separate from your family, and the man or woman you're in a relationship with. Find who you are in this world and what you need to feel good alone. I think that's the most important thing in life. 
Find a sense of self because with that, you can do anything else.
- Angelina Jolie 

I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. 
The next day, she locked me in the cellar.
- Source Unknown 



WOMEN ROCK!

women...

A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving. 
A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants.
- Lao-Tzu 


Art is indeed not the bread but the wine of life.
- Jean Paul Richter


I can't work without a model. 
I won't say I turn my back on nature ruthlessly in order to turn a study into a picture, arranging the colors, enlarging and simplifying; 
but in the matter of form I am too afraid of departing from the possible and the true.
- Vincent Van Gogh


To speak of morals in art is to speak of legislature in sex. 
Art is the sex of the imagination.
- George Jean Nathan

 
The artist does not see things as they are, but as he is.
- Alfred Tonnelle


The object of art is to give life a shape. [Midsummer Nights Dream]
- William Shakespeare 


All art is an imitation of nature.
- Seneca


The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. 
The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson 


More art later this week...

EDITED version: your WOrds and my IMAges = WO*IMA #73

your WOrds of my IMAge #73:

The heat was overwhelming. I craved for shade, to rest my aching body.
Thirsty, tired, I booked a shabby hotel room. Cock crouches, mosquitoes and 
the buzz of a non-existing air cooler didn't bother me.
I slept like a baby, to be born again some day.

I always feel like somebody's watching me!

Thank you Susu and Tina!
WO*IMA is going to have a summer break - back again on 
Monday 2nd of August
Enjoy your summer days everyone!
