Essaouira is the relaxed alternative to being in active Marrakesh. The name in reality means "little village" and it is a paradise for painters as everything is blue and white and reminds you to the lovely streets of any cyclade greek island. It is 190 km (118 miles) away from Marrakech and the trip is very enjoyable as you go through villages, countryside, and we stop for a tea and several breads and sauces degustation.
From the moment you arrive you feel curious about what you see and you wonder what could you do with this precious oil. You can not find this oil anywhere else in the world, Argan oil is only produced in Morocco and exported internationally. Its curative and healthy properties converts it in one of the most valuable oils on earth.
We go in their space and see the manual extract of the oil. You can't stop thinking about the effort they make to extract just a drop. You are given samples to take away and you taste several hand-made pieces of bread with this oil.
This is one of our donation experiences. Humility defines these association of women who feel fortunate to just share the work they do. You will see this in the look of their eyes, in their smile when they let you come in. How can we be grateful to their kindness? On the way to Essaouira, you will be given an envelope with Dirhams. The quantity you find inside is what you paid when booking for this experience, deducting the expenses for transport, guide and food. You can now directly donate your money to them or decide to keep it.
