    I have a recipe which calls for the use of Argan Oil. I am finding it very difficult to buy in my local stores and I was wondering if I could substitute another oil. Do you have any suggestions?

    i had to mail-order to get argan oil, and it's expensive too! in claudia roden's book of middle eastern food, she generally suggests a good quality olive oil substitute, so that is what i generally use.

    Hi there & welcome to the NA*ME forum!

    Argan oil is used not just for it's wonderful health benefits but for it's unique, rich & nutty flavour. If you cannot source Argan oil where you are, I would suggest using peanut or walnut oil (as long as there are no allergy issues). A very good quality olive oil is fine but you will loose the distinctive argan flavour.

    Hope that helps.

    Rezika.

    Nothing really tastes like Argan oil. The Argan tree is only in one country in the world (at least only one country produces it, that I know) which is in Africa, as I recall. The closest thing I've ever had is walnut oil. It's available here in the UK, but we do get a lot more "exotic" type stuff than the States do.
    BTW, if you buy it for just one recipe and have loads left over, it is a FAB beauty treatment. You can make face masques with it, or just use it as a general moisturiser, it is great for face/neck/decoletage/elbows/eyelashes/brows. Apparently women in Africa have been using it for ages as a beauty treatment. It's very rich & full of antioxidants & such.
    Hope this is helpful.

    Argan oil penetrates into the hair pores or shafts and enhances the elasticity of hair. It also proves to be very nourishing for the growth of hair.
