Ease muscle aches and joint pains

If you are suffering from muscle aches and arthritic pain, the powerful anti-inflammatory properties of emu oil may help to relieve the pain in your joints and muscles. Taking emu oil internally may be more efficient in treating the pain, healing your body from within.

Omega 3 has been linked to heart health and brain function. Our bodies don’t produce Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, so they need to be obtained from the food we consume. Emu oil may be a good way to ensure you’re getting enough intake of nutrients like Vitamin A, D, E, F and K2. It can also be a good alternative option to consuming fish oil supplements – so you can avoid the fishy odour!

Supplementing your diet with emu oil capsules is a great way to deliver the anti-inflammatory goodness directly to your digestive system. Rather than treating just the symptoms, it can help to prevent inflammation in the body (therefore treating the cause of them problem).

What is emu oil and why is it good for you?

Taking Care of Your Skin in the Winter

Taking care of your skin in the winter

The low humidity and dry air in the cooler seasons tend to sap the moisture from your skin. You’re more likely to have dry, flaky skin in the winter months – especially if you are already prone to eczema break outs or other dry skin conditions. Whilst we have all raised the bar when it comes to our hygiene standards, it has come at a cost to our skin. Excessive hand washing using soaps and hand sanitisers with high levels of alcohol has led many of us to experience dry, cracked hands.

Let’s restore the moisture and keep our hands nourished this winter. How? You guessed it – emu oil!

Emu Spirit’s entire skincare range contains a very high percentage of Emu Oil. In fact, it is the main ingredient just after purified water.
