The Many Uses of the Coconut Tree

Most of us have probably heard a little something about the many uses and benefits of coconut. We can cook with it, put it on our skin, and even in our hair. Coconut water has recently gained mass popularity for its super hydrating qualities and high levels of potassium. Coconut seems to be a natural and healthier alternative to conventional products in many ways. I, personally, use raw coconut oil to cook with and to moisturize or heal my skin. Currently, I put unsweetened, shredded coconut into my smoothies and on my morning cereal, which I then drown in unsweetened coconut milk.  Recently, a good friend even made me a delicious coconut martini. It’s everywhere! Aside from its edible fruit, however, the entire coconut palm tree could very well be one of the most useful and sustainable plants around.  From its palm leaves to its roots, the coconut tree can provide food, fuel and shelter. The infographic below from mercola.com does a great job of breaking down all of the parts of the tree and its various uses from around the world.
