Argan Tree and Oil

Ever heard of the argan tree (argania spinosa)? Outside morocco, it is not much known; but it is the perfect crop for hot deserts with extreme temperatures and little water or poor soil. Its oil which comes from the nuts of the tree, is said to: treat aging,  keep the skin fresh, treats cancer, treats cardiovascular diseases, treats arthritis, and treats measles in children. Its tree can live up to 200 hundred years.
