Sometimes plant leaves can look so lackluster, especially when they collect dust. Take a little coconut oil on a rag and go ahead and wipe it on the leaves of a houseplant. Be careful if you have any real sensitive or fragile plants. For most plants, though, it seems to nourish them as it cleans and conditions them.
Another thing that putting coconut oil on your plants will do is kill off any microbes or small bugs. So, it’s not just about making the plant look nicer but also about making it healthier, too.
You know those plants that have huge leaves? The one I’m thinking of is the “Elephant Ear Plant”. I know there are others in the tropical plant family that have large leaves, too but I’m not sure of their names. It is safe to put coconut oil on this group because they are hardy and the leaves are thick.
I haven’t tried it but I’ll bet if you put coconut oil on your kale or other vegetables, as they are growing, you would protect it from parasitic invasions. It will also keep the plant from having bugs crawling on it.
Some of the uses I have come up with for coconut oil may seem strange but today I have a beautiful plant in my home that I have used coconut oil on. It looks healthy and vibrant. This makes it add to the beauty of the room, not detract from it.
Remember, when thinking about the uses for coconut oil to-
