WHAT IS EMU OIL

Emu oil and other Emu oil products are increasing in popularity around the world....

But what is Emu oil and what are the benefits?

HISTORY OF EMU OIL

The use of Emu oil can be traced back thousands of years. The Australian Aborigines were the first people to discover the great healing properties of Emu Oil, they used Emu oil to protect their skin from the harsh Australian sun, and as a remedy to keep their muscles and joints supple.

This ancient remedy didn't stay a secret long, the early explorers to Australia were introduced to the healing benefits of Emu oil. Western settlers soon began to see the benefits of Emu oil. In the 19th Century, the famous Irish explorer Robert O'Hara Burke tells how he rubbed emu oil into his arms when he was sunburned and as a result found that, not only did it help his sunburn, but his stiff elbow as well.

WHAT IS EMU OIL?

Emu oil is a natural by-product made from the refined fat of the emu, scientifically named Dromaius novaehallandiae. a large flightless bird native to Australia.

Emu oil is a bright yellow liquid, rich in antioxidants, vitamin A and polyunsaturated fats. Emu oil contains the essential fatty acids; Linoleic acid (Omega-6), Linolenic acid (Omega-3), Oleic acid (anti-inflammatory), Palmitic acid, and some traces of other fatty acids.

Emu Oil has the highest concentration of Omega 3 found in nature. These fatty acids are essential in our day-to-day lives to ensure that our bodies remain in top working order. The body does not make them itself, so it is important to get these fatty acids from other sources. Emu Oil is an excellent source of these important fatty acids.

WHERE DOES THE OIL COME FROM?

Emu oil is derived from fat deposits just beneath the skin of the bird. Emus are farmed all over the world primarily for their meat. Once harvested, it is processed, filtered, and refined to various standards to obtain the prized, bright yellow oil.

WHY DOES THE OIL WORK?

Emu oil contains omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. The fatty acid profile in emu oil is nearly identical to our skin cell’s profile. The fatty acids in emu oil (Omega 3 and Omega 6) increase the production of hormone-like substances: eicosanoids in our bodies to help heal skin and reduce inflammation.

Emu oil also contains no phosphorus molecules. Our skin is phospholipid deficient, which means there’s no phosphorus in our skin. It will not let anything containing a phosphorus molecule penetrate through it. Anytime you put anything on your skin that is phospholipid deficient, or has no phosphorus, it penetrates right through.

WHY IS EMU OIL GOOD FOR THE SKIN?

Emu Oil softens and moisturises the skin, heals chapped and dry skin, evenly tones the skin and softens wrinkles. Emu oil stimulates the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and rejuvenate aging or sun-damaged skin.

When massaged into the skin quickly penetrates and saturates all the underlying tissues. Emu Oil is also bacterio-static, so bacteria will not grow in it. It is non-allergenic. It is non-comedogenic, so it will not block pores causing spots. Emu Oil is so gentle, it can be used, quite safely, on the most sensitive of skins, and importantly, you do not need to avoid the area around the eyes.

The research also signals that applying emu oil to the skin may help increase the number of healthy skin cells.

WHY IS EMU OIL USED FOR PAIN RELIEF?

Clinical studies have shown that Emu Oil applied topically has natural anti-inflammatory properties. One of the most impressive studies was one done by Drs Whitehouse and Ghosh in Australia. Each of these clinicians has over 25 years of experience and have published extensively on the evaluation and development of drugs used for arthritis. Over a 14-day period they had 11 participants with chronic pain due to arthritis; joint swelling and bone abrasion applied straight emu oil to joints.

The results were amazing. In 14 days, Emu Oil had eliminated all inflammation caused by arthritis joint swelling and bone abrasion due to lack of cartilage. None of the patients experienced arthritis pain in their joints and bones after 14 days of topical application. Emu Oil did not just mask pain, but reduced the inflammation which lowers the risk of further damage caused by scar tissue formation within the joints. Improved joint mobility can restore normal motion, translating to better performance during activities of daily life.

IS EMU OIL A LIQUID?

Pure Emu Oil is a solid but it melts at temperatures around 22°C. Cooling it will return it to its solid state. It is just as effective when applied as a liquid or as a solid.

CAN I BE ALLERGIC TO EMU OIL?

Emu Oil is considered hypo-allergenic. Allergic reactions are extremely rare as the fatty acids profile in the oil is similar to our own skin cell profile

ARE THERE DIFFERENT QUALITIES OF EMU OIL?

The quality of emu oil can vary significantly from one producer to the next. Grade A (fully refined), Grade B (once refined), and Grade C (crude). When purchasing Emu oil or Emu oil products to ensure quality avoid anything that's not Grade A. This can also be reflected in the cheap price of low-quality oils.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF EMU OIL?

Emu oil is a natural product and there are few documented side effects. Some people may experience skin irritation when applying emu oil directly to the skin as a topical ointment. To avoid this, a person should apply a small amount of emu oil to a small patch of skin, such as the back of one hand. If an allergic reaction occurs, they should stop using the oil. An important fact to consider is the source of the emu oil.

Emus thrive when they have plenty of room to roam and are able to eat a rich diet, and will be a key factor in a high-quality oil. Low-quality living conditions may result in inferior quality oil. It is best to buy oil from a reputable supplier.

It is recommended that Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should talk to their doctor before using emu oil.
