Did you know Coconut Oil is HEALTHY for you & your Dog?
I first started using coconut for cooking, but now I use it as a skin moisturizer, hair conditioner, lip balm, and to dilute some of my essential oils.
After doing some more research and reading an excessive amount of articles on the health benefits of coconut oil, I have learned that there are hundreds of benefits of coconut oil, not just for humans, but dogs as well!
I hope your doggy enjoys these healthy & homemade coconut oil & peanut butter dog treat as much as Kenzo + Vík!
