Morocco Things to Do: 725 reviews and 1,654 photos
On our way down to the Western Sahara, somebody mentioned "Argan Oil", so we stopped in Ouaalga when we saw a sign for the "Women's cooperative for Argan Oil", on the right. After being bumped about on the dusty road for 3/400 metres, found a young girl who spoke French and she took us round to the Coop. We ended up having a superb afternoon with the women, amidst much laughing and music. They brought out cushions and mats for us, bread made by themselves, tea and home-made honey and proceeded to give us a real Berber afternoon. They gradually lost their natural restraints at being photographed and fairly let me run loose. Regrettably, around 4 pm we had to take leave after buying some "Argan Oil", amid promises to come back and don't forget to send the photos, which I have done yesterday.
If you want to know the process for creating this oil, google "argan oil" and read the Wikipedia page.
Address: Ouaalga, province of Tiznit
Directions: About 27 kms. south of Tiznit on the right hand side of the road. Look for the white "Women's Coop" sign.
