Emu Oil for Hair Loss?

emu oil for hair loss

We know Emu oil is a great anti-inflammatory, but can it help with hair regrowth?

Emu Oil vs. Corn Oil Study

Although we still need to conduct further studies about the effects of emu oil on hair regrowth, a study conducted in the US by Dr. Michael Hollick on Emu oil and hair regrowth found that there was a 20% increase in growth activity of skin that received emu oil, compared to skin that received corn oil.

Results of the Study

Looking at the hair follicles that were treated with emu oil, Dr. Hollick realized they were much more robust and the skin thickness was remarkably increased. This suggests that the emu oil stimulated skin growth and hair growth. Additionally, the study showed that over 80% of hair follicles that had been “asleep” were woken up, and began growing!

Benefits of Emu Oil for Hair

Emu oil contains essential fatty acids Omega 3,6,9, which helps keep hair, skin and nails healthy (amongst other things). Emu oil is also really great to use if you have a dry scalp or psoriasis on the scalp. Massaging Emu oil into your scalp stimulates the skin and hair follicles while the anti-inflammatory properties of Emu oil help reduce redness, inflammation and itchiness. Taken orally, Emu oil will also benefit hair regrowth.

How to Use Emu Oil for your Hair

Emu Oil can be used daily to treat dry scalp or psoriasis on the scalp, or if you want to improve the condition of your hair and stimulate hair growth for a thicker head of hair.

Follow these 3 easy steps every day and incorporate it into your hair care routine:

1. Wet your hair, pour the desired amount of emu oil into your palm and gently massage your scalp, working it into your scalp through to the ends of your hair.

2. You can then leave it overnight or leave it in for 20-30 minutes.

3. Use shampoo afterwards to make sure you clean any leftover oil.

So, if you are looking for a natural method to help stimulate hair regrowth, and nourish your luscious locks, why not try emu oil?

Research Suggests Anti-Inflammatories are Key to Treating Acne

research emu oil treating acne effectively with anti-inflammatory

Emu oil is a natural anti-inflammatory known for its healing properties, but can it be used to effectively treat acne?

In March 2010, Dr Jenny J. Kim associate professor of dermatology at the University of California, Los Angeles, (UCLA) announced that there is now a new treatment to help fight acne which will lay the basis for future treatments.

Dr Kim said “Sometimes it is hard for patients dealing with acne… to understand why, even with ongoing treatment, they cannot get rid of their symptoms forever. I explain to them that these conditions are similar to having any chronic disease, like having diabetes – there is no cure yet, but we can control the symptoms. Just like insulin helps maintain a diabetic’s blood sugar, patients with acne… need to find a treatment regimen that works for them to maintain clear skin.”

What Causes Acne

There are many factors that cause acne such as excess oil production, skin inflammation, and skin cells that shed too quickly which then produce a number of the acne-causing bacteria. Hormones also play a part in acne which can often lead to acne lesions and flare ups.

Old Treatments

In the past, acne has been treated solely with antibiotics, however it is now believed that long-term antibiotic use can lead to acne bacteria becoming resistant and therefore less effective. This has lead to new treatment development.

New Treatments

So what are the new acne treatments? The answer: Anti-inflammatories. Dr. Kim states that the newer anti-inflammatory treatments lessen the severity of acne and reduces the redness and swelling of acne.

Emu Oil for Acne Treatment

Emu oil is a safe, natural and effective anti-inflammatory that reduces redness and swelling, and can be used in the treatment and prevention of scarring often associated with acne. Emu oil can be used as a topical or an internal (oral) application and due to its anti-bacterial properties, does not promote the growth of bacteria, keeping your acne affected areas clean while encouraging new skin cell growth.

If this new research is anything to go by, antibiotics could well be a thing of the past for acne treatments. Say hello to renewed, repaired and revitalized skin, with the help of emu oil.

How To Use Emu Oil to Treat Psoriasis


How To Use Emu Oil to Treat Psoriasis

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic, non-contagious autoimmune disease that affects the skin and joints. It commonly causes red, scaly patches to appear on the skin. The scaly patches are areas of inflammation and excessive skin production. Skin rapidly accumulates at these sites and takes on a silvery-white appearance, usually on the elbows and knees. Psoriasis can vary from minor patches to complete body coverage.

What Causes Psoriasis?

It is generally accepted that psoriasis has a genetic component. Skin cells switch from the normal production rate program to accelerated production and growth rate. They are pushed to the surface in as little as 2-4 days and the skin cannot shed the cells fast enough, forming the silvery-white plaque. The redness of the psoriatic lesions is caused by increased blood supply to the area of rapidly dividing skin cells.

Whether a person actually develops psoriasis may depend on something triggering a person who has a genetic tendency to develop psoriasis. This in turn triggers the immune system to over produce skin cells. Examples of triggers include systemic infections such as strep throat, injury to the skin, vaccinations, certain medications, and intra-muscular injections or oral steroid medications.

How to Treat Psoriasis

Medicated creams and ointments applied directly to psoriatic plaques can help reduce inflammation, remove built-up scale and reduce skin turn over.

If you are looking for a 100% natural and non-toxic option that is gentle on all skin types, emu oil might be one to try. 100% pure emu oil may help soothe affected skin and reduce the dryness which accompanies skin build-up.

Emu oil is a “tissue nutrient”, and may help to normalize skin cell growth to help reduce the excessive cell growth which causes the plaques on the skin.

How to Use Emu Spirit’s 100% Pure Oil of Emu For Psoriasis

Step 1

According to Mayoclinic.com, bathing helps to remove scales and calm inflamed skin. Prepare your skin for the emu oil by first soaking in a lukewarm bath. Add a quarter of a cup of Epsom salts. Do not use hot water or harsh soaps; tepid water and mild soaps with added fats are a better choice.

Step 2

Pat your skin dry with a soft cotton towel, then immediately massage the emu oil over affected areas to soothe and moisturize. Emu oil is believed to have anti-inflammatory effects. It is also rich with the essential fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6, which have beneficial effects on skin, and contains the antioxidant vitamins A and E. In addition, the lack of phosphorus in emu oil mimics the lack of phosphorus in human skin, so the oil is able to effectively penetrate skin tissue layers better.

Step 3

Wrap the affected areas with clear plastic wrap after applying the emu oil, and leave it on overnight.

Step 4

Remove the covering in the morning, and wash away any scales that may have sloughed off during the night.

Step 5

Reapply the emu oil after gently blotting the skin dry. In addition to the morning use and the after-bath application, you should apply the emu oil one more time during the day.

For added benefit, you can also take Emu Spirit’s Oil of Emu Omega 369 Capsules, or incorporate a spoonful of Emu Oil into your diet. Finally, take charge of your overall skincare routine and keep your face, body and hands nourished and hydrated using the Emu Spirit skincare range day and night.

Why Emu Oil is Effective for Skin Treatment

Emu oil is a 100% natural way to heal your skin while avoiding any trace of chemicals or harmful additives. It is non-toxic and gentle on all skin types. Studies have indicated that it is a versatile and effective solution for inflammation, bruising, burns, muscle pain, hair loss, arthritis and much more. Why has it been proven to be effective for skin treatment? Read on…

• Inflammation • Joint pain • Blisters • Burns • Stiffness • Bruising • Muscle pain • RSI • Arthritis • Rheumatism  • Dry Skin • Nappy Rash • Eczema  • Dermatitis  • Scars • Psoriasis • Hair Loss


Unlike other oils, Emu oil is totally void of phospholipids, just like human skin is. When you use oil-based products containing phospholipids, the skin naturally attempts to block penetration. This barrier leaves the cream just sitting on top of the skin’s surface. Because emu oil has no phospholipids, the skin allows it to penetrate the layers much deeper and quicker. This penetration allows for a more effective delivery of healing properties of medications. It also helps pain relievers to thoroughly reach muscles and joints.

Why Emu Oil is Effective for Skin Treatment

Treatment for Wellbeing

Used on its own, 100% pure emu oil or capsules can be effective for treating and reducing the appearance of:

• Dry Skin
• Nappy Rash
• Eczema
• Dermatitis
• Scars
• Psoriasis
• Hair Loss

Why Emu Oil is Effective for Skin Treatment

Treatment for Pain

When combined with pain relieving ingredients, such as menthol or clove bud, emu oil’s deep penetration allows it to go directly to the muscles and joints and contributes to a reduction in:

• Inflammation
• Joint pain
• Blisters
• Burns
• Stiffness
• Bruising
• Muscle pain
• Arthritis
• Rheumatism


In order for the emu oil to be effective, it must be processed correctly at the right temperatures. Emu Spirit’s patented rendering process, OilTek, developed by a world leading oil chemist, is exclusive to Emu Spirit and Emu Spirit’s products. This process produces a stable, 100% pure oil that maintains the same natural molecular structure as the raw, natural product.

We control all stages of production, from farming of the Emus, to the processing and the rendering of fat into the 100% pure Oil of Emu, using our patented rendering system OilTek at our Melbourne-based facilities.
