What do we have in common with goats that climb trees? They eat the fruit of the argan tree found in Morocco, the same trees that create argan oil, which we love to rub on literally every part of our bodies. 

Argan oil, also known as "Liquid Gold," has been used by Moroccan women for centuries for its beautifying benefits. The oil is so popular because it is a 100 percent organic source of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, making it something of a celebrity in the world of beauty.

At left: Josie Maran Argan Sugar Balm Body Scrub, $28, heals all over as it hydrates.

Its many miraculous skin and hair benefits include  moisturizing, anti-aging and healing properties for the entire body. It softens dry skin, heals acne, lightens scars, reduces wrinkles, softens cuticles, repairs damaged hair and more. What's not to love?

Check out seven of our favorite products that contain the miracle oil.

    • One by one, 3 utility workers descended into a manhole. One by one, they died.

      When a utility worker in Key Largo, Fla., noticed that a section of a paved street was not settling properly, he decided to remove a manhole cover and descend into the earth. Moments later on Monday morning, the 15-foot-deep hole went silent. Sensing the man was trapped, a fellow utility worker climbed into the drainage hole to rescue him. When he, too, stopped responding, a third worker entered the same hole. All three men died, overcome by poisonous fumes underground, the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. A Key Largo firefighter who made a desperate attempt to save the men also became unconscious within seconds. The firefighter, Leonardo Moreno, an eight-year veteran of the

    • NASA’s Mars Rover Discovered Some Mud Cracks That Could Be Really, Really Important

      In November, we reported on a discovery that had scientists convinced they found evidence of ancient organisms, and today, NASA announced their scientists believe they’ve found another. All signs lead them to believe they’re mud cracks, which makes them the first to be confirmed on the Red Planet by the Curiosity mission. “Even from a distance, we could see a pattern of four- and five-sided polygons that don’t look like fractures we’ve seen previously with Curiosity,” said Curiosity science team member Nathan Stein in NASA’s announcement. High resolution images have pointed to the existence of deltas, gullies and river valleys on Mars, which is why scientists view it as one of the places in our solar system most likely to be/have been home to alien life.

    • ‘Dance Moms’ Abby Lee Miller Wants No Jail Time In Fraud Case; Feds Disagree

      Just two days before the first part of Abby Lee Miller’s sentencing in her multi-million dollar fraud and illegal currency import cases, the Dance Moms host is insisting that the hiding of over $800,000 was all because she became too famous too fast. Miller is also saying she never hurt anyone, she’s been humiliated publicly and she doesn’t deserve to be put behind bars –  though the feds really don’t see it that way. “Ms. Miller respectfully requests that the Court impose a non-custodial sentence after considering her acceptance of responsibility and the nature and characteristics of her conduct and her life,” say Miller’s lawyers in a sentencing memorandum submitted in federal court on Tuesday. “Indeed, upon proper analysis, Ms. Miller submits that a sentence of probation would be entirely consistent with the advisory Sentencing Guidelines,’ the paperwork by Robert Ridge and Brandon Verdream of Pittsburgh firm Clark Hill asserts.
