Let's talk coconuts! 🥥

Happy World Coconut Day! To celebrate coconut day, we've dedicated a whole blog to this amazing ingredient that we use in so many of our Mia Belle products..



What's so great about coconuts!?


It's SUSTAINABLE due to the environmental impact of growing and harvesting and renewing coconuts is low (one of our favorite reasons!). The coconut tree, which is also known as the "tree of life", contains so many useful materials for health, beauty, and wellness. Coconut has been proven to be a much more sustainable alternative to other oils, like palm oil. It also does not need to be cut down (like other trees) to reap its benefits from the coconuts, making this plant an inherently sustainable option for high-volume oil production.


🥥 The coconut is not a nut at all, but a stone fruit!

A bit of a backstory from the coconut..


Historically, Coconut Oil was used as a remedy for treating illnesses and infections, healing wounds, promoting the growth of strong bones, and protecting skin against blemishes. The first evidence of coconuts was believed to have been found in New Guinea around 12,000 years ago!

Since then, Coconuts have been used in many different ways across the globe and is extremely versatile, have a look below at their uses!


Coconut Water- Can be drunk directly out of the coconut, also known as coconut juice

Coconut Flesh- The white meaty part can be eaten but can also be used to make milk, oil, and cream.


Coconut Oil- Can be used in a variety of ways from cooking, and mouthwash and is now commonly used in beauty products such as moisturizer and hair products.


Coconut Shell- A beautiful piece of décor for the home which people are creating bowls, candles, and décor.


Coconut Husk- This coconut fiber can be used for ropes, brushes, doormats, scrubbers, and more!


Coconut Leaves- In some traditional areas of the world, you can find coconut leaves being used for shelter, wedding decorations, brooms, and baskets!


Coconut Flowers- You can even use the flowers! Coconut flower nectar is a great replacement for refined sugar.


Coconut Trunk- Firewood is commonly used from the trunk itself. Burning the coconut husk is thought to help keep mosquitos away! Once a coconut palm tree has stopped producing coconuts the trunks can be used as lumber.



🥥 A single coconut palm tree can have up to 180 coconuts harvested in one harvest!
