Herboristerie El Khaïr, Marrakesh

24 Rue Al Gundafi
Riad Zitoun Kedim
Morocco 40000
Tel: 212 24 42 73 07's insider take:

This traditional hole-in-the-wall herbalist shop stocks a wide range of spices, medicinal plants, and exotic lotions, potions, and infusions. The most popular product, however, is vitamin E–rich argan oil. Available only in Morocco, it comes in a cosmetic version that does wonders for the skin, and an edible version that can be used in cooking and is said to lower cholesterol. The proprietor speaks English and will custom-mix aromatherapy oils and organic (no alcohol) perfumes. You'll find it on a quiet passageway between Riad Zitoun Kedim and Riad Zitoun J'did.

Open daily 10 am to 1 pm and 3 to 7:30 pm.
