Coconut Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight
Whisk yourself away to a tropical paradise with Coconut Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden. Did you know that a coconut is not made of cocoa, and is technically not a nut, but a drupe? So where does the coconut get it’s name? In 16th-century Portuguese, the word coco meant skull or head. Coconuts have three indentations which vaguely resemble human facial features, making the large drupes appear similar to human heads. In early botanical studies, the coconut could be classified as both a drupe and a nut, however the definitions were refined in later botanical studies, classifying the coconut as a drupe. This lead to the portmanteau of coco and nut, giving us the delightful, easily recognizable word coconut. As wonderful as word history may be, you’re here to read about creamy, fresh Coconut Fragrance Oil.
