Coo-Coo for Coconuts
Scattered groves of these elegant windswept beauties dot every island and landscape of the Caribbean. They're more than beautiful; they've helped us survive, using the oil, water, fruit, shells, bark, and fronds. They're a good example for how we can survive the modern world too. Try to bend "likkle bit" in rough weather, and you might not fall down.
While the nut carries an earthy, sweet, almost resinous scent, we've selected a perfumer's take on coconut that we think you'll love. A little sprinkle of ground vanilla bean on top for good measure.
Our Sargasso Botanica soaps begin with a base of coconut butter + aloe vera. To this, we add olive oil, mango butter, and wildcrafted Amazonian murumuru butter.
The world has gone coo-coo for coconuts. We get it. Like aloe, it's a wonder food. Eat and drink lots of it. Like this guy.

We swear by coconut water to cure dehydration headaches. But we also like it with whiskey over ice.
One last thing . . . since coconuts don't grow in much of the first world, could we suggest that you buy yours Fairtrade?
