Coconut Simmering Granules
Fossil records from New Zealand indicate that small, coconut-like plants grew there as long as 15 million years ago. Even older fossils have been uncovered in Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Maharashtra, India.
Regardless of its origin, the coconut has spread across much of the tropics, probably aided in many cases by sea-faring peoples.
The fruit is light and buoyant and presumably it spread significant distances by marine currents.
Coconuts are extensively used in Hindu religious rites. Coconuts are usually offered to the gods, and a coconut is smashed on the ground or on some object as part of an initiation or inauguration of building projects, ships, etc.; this act signifies a sacrifice of ego, the idea that wealth stems from divinity, and the idea that, if due credit is not given, bad karma is taken on. In Hindu mythology it is referred to as Kalpavruksha.
Coconut is a very familiar scent and an all time favourite.
Simmering granules are a great alternative to fragrance oils. No need to add water. Just two teaspoons in your burner, light the tealight, and away you go.
They can also be used in ash trays, for fragrancing and decorating planters, or even for scenting letters and cards.
