4 Ways to use Emu Oil
By Emu Spirit | January 22, 2022 | Blog
Pure refined emu oil is composed of essential fatty acids, with the largest component being:
Oleic acid – an Omega 9 fatty acid
Linoleic acid – an Omega 6 fatty acid
Linolenic acid – an Omega 3 fatty acid
Due to the high amounts of Omega 369 fatty acids in emu oil, research has shown that pure refined emu oil is naturally anti-inflammatory and possesses emollient properties, which means it may have the ability to heal and restore our skin, hair and joints, as well as our internal gastrointestinal health.
Emu oil has been used for hundreds of years to treat a wide variety of health ailments. Here’s 4 ways you can use emu oil today:
1. Treating eczema on your skin
Although there’s no cure-all for eczema, the symptoms can be treated and managed. Topical steroid creams can be prescribed to help relieve eczema symptoms, but they come with their own set of concerns.
Emu oil is an all-natural and chemical free non-steroid based treatment that has been found in studies to improve itching, inflammation, erythema, dry skin and scales associated with eczema. Emu oil is able to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin to delivery more significant results. Emu oil is suitable for sensitive skin and doesn’t clog your pores.
How to use emu oil for your skin: wash the affected area with soap and water, gently towel dry the skin, then immediately apply emu oil to the area. This will help to restore hydration to your skin and reduce eczema symptoms like itching and inflammation.
2. Soothing arthritis and sore joints through massage
Arthritis is an inflammatory and degenerative disease that can affect joints within the body. There is no cure, however arthritis symptoms can improve with topical application of emu oil. The healthy antioxidants have potent anti-inflammatory effects, and the deep penetration of emu oil into the skin ensures it goes to the swollen joints where it is needed.
Using emu oil can help to alleviate joint pain, tenderness, stiffness and swelling. Using it consistently can improve joint mobility and better performance of your daily activities. Not only that, it can also prevent further damage by preventing scar tissue formation within the joints.
How to use emu oil for your joints: take a small amount of emu oil (a little certainly goes a long way!) and massage gently in circular motions over sore joints and muscles. Repeat this process at least 2-3 times a day for maximum effect.
3. Revitalising damaged hair and dry scalp
The natural healing powers of emu oil has been used on various skin conditions for many generations. However, did you know its use and effectiveness has expanded into hair and scalp treatment? Caring for your hair is just as important as caring for your skin, so by incorporating emu oil into your hair care, you may be able to revitalise dry and damaged hair.
Emu oil’s effectiveness on your hair is due to its highly effective moisturising properties. This is because emu oil contains omega 3, 6, 7 & 9 and vitamins A, D, E, F and K2. It will absorb easily without leaving an oily residue, so your hair should feel smooth and silky.
How to use emu oil for your hair and scalp: apply emu oil directly onto the scalp after shampoo and conditioner. Lightly massage the oil into the scalp and cover the head with a towel. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing.
4. Boosting your inner health with a spoonful of emu oil
By now, we understand emu oil is a rich source of omega fatty acids, which is essential to your body because it’s something we need but our bodies do not produce naturally. These essential fatty acids have been studied and shown to be highly beneficial to our skin, hair, muscles and joints. It may also help to regulate our mood and settle digestion.
We’ve all heard of ingesting fish oil eating salmon, but if your family is not a fan of oily fish, a spoonful of emu oil can be a great dietary supplement to help the whole family boost their inner health.
How to use emu oil in your diet: prepare your regular breakfast cereal – just the way you like it. Take one spoonful of emu oil and drizzle over the bowl. Stir through gently and serve.
