Coconuts and dela seeds. Both the coconut and dela seed provide elements used in beauty and medicinal products. The Dela seed is crushed and added to oil and used as an ‘anti aging’ or after burn serum. Coconut oil is used in cooking and as a moisturiser. Whilst the trees may look ‘tropical’ one of the deadly hazards of the isles is that you steer clear from walking under these trees avoid falling coconuts.
