5 Ancient Health Remedies cayenne pepper

Cayenne

It took less than 50 years from the discovery of America by Christopher Columbus for the Cayenne pepper to spread across every continent of the world and be adopted into countless cultural cuisines and medicinal practices.

Excluding garlic, there isn’t a food on the planet that has as many health and nutritional benefits which are supported by over 3000 peer reviewed studies. From protecting you from heart disease to boosting your immune system, Cayenne does it all. However, the most popular medicinal use for Cayenne throughout history has been pain relief.

When combined with Olive Oil and Beeswax, Cayenne can be made into a salve that keeps for a long time and has natural healing and pain relief properties when applied to closed wounds.

 

5 Ancient Health Remedies blackberries

Blackberries

Aside from being a yummy staple in any good pastry chef’s kitchen, the blackberry has a long history of medicinal value throughout Europe. Its history dates back as early as 2,500 years ago and is an ideal food for anybody looking a natural and healthy remedy to ageing.

The blackberry contains hundreds of phytonutrients and phytochemicals that have immense anti-aging properties which help your body to detoxify and repair itself after a workout. Blackberries are also rich in tannins which reduce intestinal inflammation and reduce belly bloat, giving you that much desired trim belly. The blackberry also contains large amounts of Vitamin E, which assist in combating arthritis, chronic inflammation and other age-related illnesses.

We have only scratched the surface on the health points of blackberries but it’s easy as pie to obtain them all. Just add a cup to your morning breakfast to reap the benefits.

 

5 Ancient Health Remedies ginger

Ginger 

Ginger is a flowering plant from the jungles of Southeast Asia. Its “tubers” or “roots” are the part of the plant that have commonly been used in cooking and medicine for thousands of years.

The unique flavour of ginger comes from one of its natural oils called Gingerol. Research on Gingerol has shown it to have anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-oxidant, neuroprotective and gastroprotective properties.

Ginger does a lot to keep you healthy. It’s also an incredibly effective natural remedy for nausea so be sure to load up after a big night out by adding a little bit of ginger to your morning tea.

 

5 Ancient Health Remedies echinicea

Echinacea

What did the ancient indigenous peoples of North America take when they caught a cold? Unfortunately, they didn’t have access to Codral Cold and Flu as we do today. They did however have a secret weapon in the form of a flower called Echinacea.

Echinacea is a flowering plant in the daisy family. They are commonly called coneflowers and are found exclusively in the eastern and north America where they grow in dry wooded areas. Echinacea are famous for their natural flu fighting properties and their ability to strengthen your immune system.

The best part is you don’t have to book a long flight to North America next time you catch the flu. Echinacea extract is widely available in pill or gel form at most major pharmacies across Australia.

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life

We understand how difficult it can be to prioritise your health, especially during the hustle and bustle of modern life. Fortunately, there are many ways you can improve your day-to-day health and well-being by incorporating Emu Spirit into your schedule.

Here are just a few…

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life

A Drop in your Daily Diet

For many, breakfast is a luxury often missed, and while we don’t recommend skipping too many of them, we understand that it’s a symptom of a busy life. But just because we don’t have time to eat doesn’t mean we should completely ignore an opportunity to improve our gut health and digestive system.

Taking one or two Emu Oil Omega 369 Capsules on the way out the door in the mornings is a great way to reduce general inflammation in the digestive track and improve overall health, and it only takes a second of your time.

And for those breakfast aficionados, a couple drops of 100% Pure Oil of Emu in your yoghurt or cereal will greatly improve your heath by adding Omega 3, 6 and 9 to your meal without jeopardizing the flavour.

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life

Soothe Joints from Working from Home

For many, working from home became the silver lining of the Covid-19 pandemic. All at once, thousands of people across the country were able to show up to work in their pyjamas experiencing a form of liberation they’d previously only dreamed of. However, it didn’t take long to be made painfully clear to many that the couch isn’t exactly ergonomic.

Never fear! Office injuries such as general joint pain and repetitive strain injury (RSI) can be alleviated by applying emu oil to the sore area which will help reduce inflammation, stiffness and swelling, as well as help prevent scar tissue from developing within the joints.

Now you can cancel that trip to the physio and continue working in the comfort of your pyjamas.

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life

Massaging Muscles Post Workout

It’s unanimous amongst the experts. Daily exercise is just as important as a nutritional diet if you wish to stay in tip-top shape. Unfortunately, it’s quite normal to feel pain and soreness in your muscles after a tough workout. This has been coined “Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness” or “DOMS” by the professionals and it’s a result of small tearing in the muscle fibres.

Fortunately, due to emu oil’s deep penetrative and anti-inflammatory properties, massaging the sore areas of your muscles with 100% Pure Oil of Emu will accelerate the healing process and get you back in the gym before you know it.

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life hair care

Hair and Scalp Care

For many people, the daily routine of hair and scalp care is an unconscious one. Shampoo, condition, rinse and dry. But there is so much more that can be done to protect your scalp and ensure your hair stays silky and smooth, and it only takes a couple more seconds of your time.

Emu oil is a major source of Omega 3, 6 and 9 which have been scientifically found to increase hair elasticity, nourish the hair follicles, prevent hair loss, stimulate hair growth and moisturise and improve dry and flaky scalps.  Simply massage 2-3 drops of Emu Spirit 100% pure emu oil into your scalp once you step foot out of the shower before drying your hair.

It won’t be long before you look back at your old hair-care routine as incomplete.

 

Emu Spirit for Every Day Life pets

Pet Protection for Paw Pads, Coat and Joints

It’s not only human hair that benefits from emu oil. If your pet’s paw pads or coat is looking dull, brittle or flaky, it may be a good idea to apply a few drops to your hands and rub it into their coat thoroughly. Emu oil is 100% safe for pets (even if they lick it!) and can assist in treating a whole range of pet related problems such as healing skin irritation, reducing allergies and alleviating joint soreness. The best part is, you won’t have to worry about fighting your cuddly cat or pet pooch to accept Emu Oil as they generally love the smell.

Emu oil is commonly used to treat a range of internal and external ailments, including eczema, dermatitis, and inflammation-related issues. For years, many of our customers have sworn by their Emu Spirit 100% Pure Oil of Emu to help them through all the things life throws at your family – nappy rashes, bug bites, burns and cuts, all the way through to arthritis and rheumatism.

But did you know there’s 4 other ways you can use emu oil?

emu spirit pure oil of emu chapped lips

Chapped Lips

A change in weather, hot and dry humidity or a dehydrated body usually shows up on your lips. Severely dry, chapped and cracked lips can be painful, but there’s a way to speed up the healing process. Emu oil can be used to reduce skin and lip toxicity, due to its super-moisturising nature. Emu oil creates a natural barrier on the skin (and can be used like a lip balm) to protect the thin and sensitive skin on your lips.

emu spirit pure oil of emu cold sores

Cold Sores

The pesky cold sore can be triggered by exposure to hot sun, cold wind, a cold or viral illness, a weak immune system and even through stress. How does emu oil work its magic for treating cold sores? Answer: its anti-inflammatory properties. Inflammation can be described as pain, redness, swelling, itching – this is very much like what this annoying ‘fever blister’ is. Why is emu oil more effective than tea tree oil or grapefruit seed oil? Because it moisturises the skin while working on a miracle; treating the inflammation at the same time.

emu spirit pure oil of emu pet care

Pet Care

Don’t forget about your furry family members! Not just suitable for newborns, kids and adults – emu oil is safe to use on pets too. Your pets can suffer from dry skin, chapped paws, dry noses and itchy spots. They can benefit from a few drops of emu oil regularly to keep their body moisturised. Emu oil has been shown to quickly restore damaged skin on pets, and most importantly, it is safe for consumption in case it is ingested.

piercing and tattoo aftercare emu spirit pure oil of emu

Tattoo and Piercing After Care

You may think the pain is worth it during a piercing or tattoo; but what about afterwards? Your skin may be very irritated, flaky, scabby or itchy around the area of the piercing or body art. It may be tempting to pick or scratch at it, but this will only make it worse and the healing process longer. Instead, use a few drops of emu oil directed on the patch of skin to help it heal properly and quickly. Because emu oil can effectively penetrate the layers of the skin and inject much needed moisture, it’s a natural solution for tattoo and piercing aftercare.

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:

4 Ways to use Emu Oil skincare

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.

4 Ways to use Emu Oil inner health

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.

 

Massage Techniques for Arthritis with Emu Oil

We all enjoy a good massage, and it can be beneficial to anyone for relieving tension and stress, but for some it can also be used as a regular part of managing chronic conditions, including arthritis.


Approximately 3.85 million Australians are impacted by arthritis, suffering from chronic pain, inflammation and stiffness. Among them, some cope with the pain by using regular massage to improve their joint mobility, help them relax and to sleep in some comfort.

Here are 5 of the best massage techniques for easing arthritis symptoms:

1. Relaxation Massage
This technique uses long strokes, circular movements and kneading to loosen tight muscles and improve circulation. The blood circulation releases tension and stress to encourage the body to relax.

2. Deep Tissue Massage
This technique targets problem areas, directly addressing the chronic pain. Deep tissue massages focus on the deeper layers of the muscle and muscle tissue, and is usually received regularly to help temporarily relieve symptoms of arthritis.

3. Lymphatic Massage
This technique is known as a detox, as it uses light, patterned strokes to help drain fluid into the bloodstream. Lymphatic massage works well for arthritis sufferers as it drains the excess fluid from inflammatory points.

4. Shiatsu Massage
This employs a ‘finger pressure’ technique, which is applied to pressure points of the body (e.g. elbows and knees). The goal is to stretch and rotate the joints, usually going through the areas where an arthritis sufferer is experiencing the most pain.

5. Reflexology Massage
This technique is an Asian practice based on the concept of placing pressure on areas of the body to help heal other parts of the body (for example, placing pressure on the big toe to help deal pain felt on the head). Reflexology is designed to alleviate stress and anxiety whilst also assisting with pain relief.

Massage Techniques for Arthritis with Emu Oil 

Now that you know what each of the massage techniques entail, it’s well worth considering incorporating these 5 massage styles into your lifestyle if you are coping with chronic pain. What’s more, it’s also important to consider what kind of massage oils are being used in the practice.

Over the years, as more studies have revealed emu oil to be a top choice topical massage oil, many massage therapy professionals opt for pure emu oil in their practice. The reason is two-fold: Emu oil provides the added benefit of fast pain relief. This is due to its high concentration of Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids, which help reduce inflammation. It also absorbs quickly into the skin and contains natural healing qualities of Vitamin A, E & Oleic Acid.

Massage Techniques for Arthritis with Emu Oil

Whether you want to BYO massage oil, or you’re even considering trying massage therapy at home – Emu Spirit 100% Pure Oil of Emu is your secret weapon to pain relief.

How to Deal with Chronic Pain

Living with chronic pain is never easy. In fact, it most likely has a major effect on your way of life. If you suffer from arthritis, fibromyalgia or chronic back pain, you may have heard health professionals advising you to accept the pain, learn to live with the pain, and pace yourself… but the most important factor in managing pain is the role of the patient. Self-management is the best way to improve your level of activity and keep pain to a minimum.

Here’s 5 things you can do now to deal with chronic pain:

How to deal with chronic pain emu spirit emu oil

1. Learn deep breathing to help you relax

Let’s start with something simple – breathing – something we all know how to do! Help your body relax by learning some meditation and deep breathing techniques. Tension and tightness seep from muscles when they receive a quiet message to relax. This may help to ease pain as you begin to focus on the breath; fill your abdomen with air, let the air fill from the abdomen up, then let it out (picture a deflating balloon).

2. Boost chronic pain relief with exercise

You may never be in the mood to move your body too much, but exercising can encourage your body to release natural endorphins (the brain chemicals that help to improve your mood while also blocking pain signals). But wait, there’s more. Exercise has another pain-reducing effect; it strengthens muscles, helping you to prevent re-injury and further pain. If you needed another reason to exercise, here it is.

3. Cut back on alcohol and smoking

Why should you reduce your alcohol consumption? The answer is simple. Pain makes sleeping more difficult, and alcohol can make sleep problems worse. Drinking less or no alcohol can improve your quality of life. Additionally, smoking can worsen painful circulation problems, and worsen chronic pain. Consider cutting back and observe the counter-effects it has on your body.

4. Get a massage for chronic pain relief

Massage can help reduce stress and relieve tension. This is because the techniques used relaxes muscle tissue, which in turn reduces painful contractions and spasms.

Massage therapy professionals have found using emu oil topically for massage provides the added benefit of reducing inflammation and pain relief. It absorbs into the skin and contains natural healing qualities of Vitamin A, E & Oleic Acid.

5 Tips for a Happy, Healthy Summer

Summer is here, and for many of us that means it’s the time for long barbeques, hitting the beach and catching up with family and friends during the festive season. It’s also the time of excessive sun exposure, hay fever, dry skin and bug bites.

With a few easy lifestyle reminders, summer will be a breeze.

Here’s 5 tips to remember for a happy, healthy summer…

 

5 Tips for a Happy, Healthy Summer

With the harsh Australian sun’s UV rays in mind, stick to a sun lotion that has at least SPF 30 – or even better, SPF 50. Try to avoid sitting in the sun during its peak hours between 10am and 4pm. Reapply sun screen every two hours immediately after swimming. For an extra layer of sun protection, apply a base of pure emu oil to your skin before slapping on the sun screen.

Try to reduce your exposure to allergens that can set off your hay fever by vacuuming and cleaning your home regularly to remove excess pollen, and changing your clothes after you’ve been outside. Consider trying emu oil capsules to boost your immunity over the summer.

3. Protect Your Hair

Constant heat, sun damage and chlorine can take a toll on your hair, leaving it dull and dry. Try to avoid heat styling during summer, and use a conditioning treatment to add moisture back to your hair. For a natural alternative, use pure emu oil to coat your locks and bring it back to life!
