The internship at Jiwa Damai is a unique experience. We always invite our interns to write an evaluation of their project and learning and an evaluation of their personal development, at the end of their stay. You can read here the thought of Rene, our intern, on her project at Jiwa Damai.
During my time at Jiwa Damai, I used the Permaculture garden facilities and the knowledge of other volunteers in order to explore my interest in nutrition.
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.
Inside, in a green atmosphere, fruits are drying while the filtering process of oil is done by hand.
Empty jars and glass bottles are ready to package the delicious virgin coconut oil.
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.

Read step 1 here and step 2 here. Once the coconut flakes have been produced, we Fresh spring water is added to the flakes and the liquid then extracted by hand. It is then filtered thru a fine piece of fabric and the water is allowed to settle on the bottom of the container. This process of filtering is done 12 times to produce the delicious virgin coconut oil, a health food and natural medicine.
Unlike the cooking coconut oil, which is extracted by heat, the virgin oil never exceeds the temperature of 30 degrees.

In our previous post, we began guiding you in how to produce virgin coconut oil in a step by step process. Be sure to check out step 1 here! Once the outer and inner shells of the coconut have been split open, the coconut meat is carefully extracted by hand from the inner hard shell. The fresh meat is then ground into coconut flakes with an electric grinder, fed by hand.
Keep following along with step 3 here.

To produce virgin Balinese coconut oil, the coconuts must first be totally ripe.
Tip: The young green coconut is full of delicious water. The dark brown one has ripened and is full of rich white coconut meat. From this meat the oil will be produced.
The outer shell is opened and its small, tan colored fibers become visible. This shell can be used for many different purposes. For example, you could get crafty and make your own floor mat or use the shells simply as firewood.
Once the outer shell has been opened, you'll find a smaller shell where the coconut meat is located.
The inner harder shell needs to be split open with a large, heavy knife to reach the rich meat. This shell is very hard, so a sturdy knife is necessary.
The meat can be used for coconut flakes, added to smoothies, dehydrated coconut chips, or oil production for a wonderful boost in essential vitamins and nutrients.
Have you ever felt inspired to produce your own coconut oil? Have you tried this method? If so, how did it work out? If not, what other methods have you used?
