Coconut

The coconut tree is known for its myriad properties. Called the ‘Kalpataru ’ or the wish fulfilling tree, the coconut bears a fruit which is extremely useful as well. Other than health, coconut finds its way into beauty treatments as well. The pulp of the fruit, the water and oil can be used for beauty enhancement. Coconut makes the skin look younger and more vibrant. It can be used as an exfoliator, moisturiser and acne treatment.
