We are Arganic; purveyors of hand-sourced Arabic organic ingredients, with provenance, integrity and ethical farming partnerships at our core.
I’m a proud Londoner born to Iraqi parents, passionate about health and heritage.
My mother who is a doctor was quite a purist, everything had to be made from scratch, and vegetables made up most of the diet to be economical. She would explain the health benefits of the things she would use in our dishes such as pomegranates, walnuts, and lentils. Using the Arabic pantry and flavours meant that fast, simple dishes were delicious and healthy.
Nutritious food meant naturally shiny hair and a glowing complexion, and therefore an uncomplicated beauty regime. I grew up using olive oil in my hair and rosewater on my skin. Once you realise that natural and simple works, there’s no way back.
