When I arrived at Jiwa Damai as an intern, I had to organize the production of the Coconut House.  A very interesting and exciting project that I enjoyed doing with the help of Margret and Libby.

The production begins with Nyoman and Ketut opening  the coconuts in the tropical garden.The coconut meat is extracted before being transformed in flakes with a grinder.

Nyoman and Ketut are opening the coconuts which were just harvested from the trees.

Inside, in a green atmosphere, fruits are drying while the filtering process of oil is done by hand.

The green roof of the coconut house immerses the room in a green light.

Empty jars and glass bottles are ready to package the delicious virgin coconut oil.

Production, packaging and labeling are carefully organized

You can use it on your skin or for cooking. It is a really healthy food with lots of benefits. I had the pleasure to enjoy it in the delicious Balinese meals that are prepared by Made. Finished products are then nicely put together in the small shop of Jiwa Damai and other outlets.
