Why Emu Oil is a Must-Have for Springtime

Why Emu Oil is a Must-Have for Springtime


Spring has finally sprung again (and if you’re unlucky, so have your allergies).

The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and it makes us ponder this: Emu oil is a multi-purpose remedy that can be used all year round. But why do so many customers bring their bottle of Emu Spirit out of the medicine cabinet especially in the springtime?

We can think of 4 reasons why your bottle of 100% Pure Oil of Emu is in heavy use this season…

1. Emu Oil provides an extra layer of sun protection

Why Emu Oil is a Must-Have for Springtime

Sunnier spring days means there’s a higher chance you will encounter sun damage to your skin, especially in Australia. Emu oil – when applied underneath a regular sunscreen – can provide you with additional defence from the sun due to its natural sun factor. While it’s not a replacement for sunscreen, emu oil can provide an extra layer of protection for your skin against dehydration from the sun. It’s great for households who are concerned about all the chemicals contained in regular sunscreen formulations.

 

2. Emu Oil eases itching and discomfort from bug bites

Why Emu Oil is a Must-Have for Springtime

Springtime is when the bugs and insects come out to play. Your family will be exposed wherever and whenever they’re outdoors. Many families rub emu oil on their skin before heading out, as a way to naturally repel mosquitoes and pesky bugs. This is exactly how emu oil was used by natives thousands of years ago. Emu oil is also great for soothing itchy, painful skin from insect bites – we’re sure the kids have had their fair share of emu oil!


3. Emu Oil bolsters your resistance to seasonal pollen and allergies

“Ahh-choo!” That’s the sound of spring, for the allergy-prone amongst us. The transition into warmer weather may trigger seasonal allergies, also called hay fever or allergic rhinitis. If your immune system overreacts to allergens like plant pollen, you’ll begin to experience a lot of sneezing, itching and congestion. For many of our customers, allergies run in the family. They rely on emu oil to give them a natural allergy immunity boost, by just adding a spoonful of pure emu oil to their daily diet. It may help relieve symptoms like the nose-dripping and the eye-watering, so you can just enjoy the sunshine instead of itching your way through the season.

 

4. Emu Oil helps to reduce Rheumatoid Arthritis flare ups

Why Emu Oil is a Must-Have for Springtime

So many Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferers swear they experience aching joints during a period of changing in weather; forget flowers – a flare up is the symbol for a new season. The most common use of emu oil is to manage the symptoms associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The Omega-3 fatty acids may help reduce the level of inflammation, as well as the muscle and joint pain caused by this chronic condition. Many customers use emu oil both topically and internally: they massage the oil directly onto your body, and ingest it by taking a spoonful or adding it to a cold drink such as orange juice. This method manages the painful symptoms from the inside and out (a strategy we most definitely recommend!).

 

 

How the Team use Emu Spirit at Home

How the Team use Emu Spirit at Home

Like many Australians, the Emu Spirit team have embraced a work from home schedule this year. We asked four of our team to share how they have used their much-loved Emu Spirit products at home, and how it’s helped them during their new lifestyle adjustments.


Curious about what we’ve gotten up to at home? Read on…

Andrew – CEO

How the Team use Emu Spirit at Home

“I’ve been doing my best to stay consistent with my health habits and keep up a healthy routine at home. In my spare time, I’m usually outdoors working on the garden. It’s been increasingly important to me that I prioritise time for myself, my family and my team. Taking a break and stepping away from the computer has helped me find a healthy work balance. The one thing I’ve been consistent with is taking my Emu Spirit Omega 369 Capsules every single day, as I have been for years. I take 3 capsules a day, and it has made a remarkable difference to my general wellbeing.”

 

Michael – Production Manager

How the Team use Emu Spirit at Home

“I’ve been keeping busy every day, working hard to meet the demand of our products (ensuring all our orders are going out in a timely fashion to our wonderful customers) whilst also balancing maintaining my health – I’ve actually been making a bigger effort to prioritise my health more than usual. Emu oil has been part of my everyday diet for decades. Recently, I’ve been getting more creative with how I incorporate a spoonful of Pure Oil of Emu into my daily life. I’ve taken a liking to the Overnight Oats recipe! It’s easy, quick and delicious. I prepare it the night before, and enjoy a healthy breakfast every morning. It gives me energy to start the day on a positive note, knowing I’ve done one good thing for my health.”

 

Debbie – Customer Sales Executive

How the Team use Emu Spirit at Home


“I think I’m adjusting pretty well to the work from home lifestyle. I love being comfortable in my home office and wearing what makes me feel cosy and relaxed while I do my computer work. I admit I don’t have the most ergonomic set up, so lately my arms and hand joints have been feeling more achy than usual. I’ve only used my trusty jar of Emu Spirit Arthritic & Muscular rub for my knees, but I thought I’d give it a go on my elbows and wrists. As I expected, after daily use for about a week, it’s already working wonders on my hands and fingers (and I actually don’t mind the refreshing eucalyptus scent)! The achy feeling has significantly reduced, and I can work at 100% again. I keep my little jar right on my desk as a reminder to apply it at the end of the day.”

“I am one of many who got a #pandemicpuppy and we love him to pieces. He experiences seasonal allergies and recently got a bacterial infection on his paws. When we noticed he kept non-stop licking his paws, we took him to the vet and got some antibiotics which seemed to do the job. Unfortunately, one week later, he started licking his paws again. While we couldn’t easily visit the vet, we decided to try applying pure emu oil directly to his paws every night. Lo and behold – after just two nights of application, he’s stopped licking his paws! I love finding yet another way to use my emu oil. My puppy loves the taste too.”
