Coconut Bowl Use and Care

My family is from Fiji, where Yaqona, also known as Kava, is consumed on a regular basis, go to any resort in Fiji, and you’ll most likely be invited to a Kava ceremony where you’ll drink Kava from a coconut bowl.
Maintaining your coconut bowls is easy.
- Hand wash in warm, soapy water and air dry.
- Coconut bowls are best suited for room-temperature food, drink, or cool foods.
- Apply a small amount of coconut oil every 2-3 months (depending on the frequency of use) to add shine and reseal its pores.
- Do not place in a dishwasher or soak for extended periods of time.
- Do not use it for hot food and drink, as heat can cause the bowl to crack.
- Do not place it in a microwave.
