September 2nd is marked as the World Coconut Day in the Asian and Pacific Coconut Community, headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia. It is celebrated to highlight the versatility and the benefits of the fruit. In fact, if you notice, you will find each and every part of coconut (and also the tree) is utilised in some or the other way. We all are well aware of the benefits of coconut flesh and water. While the flesh is used to prepare a pool of sweet and savoury dishes, the water works as a hydrating drink, with multiple health benefits. We also extract oil from coconut that is both healthy and versatile - you can use it as cooking oil and also apply on your skin and hair.
Besides the flesh and the water, coconut shell is used as holder/container; the coconut skin works as a natural mosquito repellent and the leaves are often used to make mats and ropes. Much versatile, isn't it?
