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.

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.

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.

Before and After using Emu Spirit

We often receive feedback from our wonderful customers who have found relief from their health issues by using Emu Spirit daily. Apart from written testimonials, we sometimes receive amazing photo submissions which is always a welcome surprise. After all, if the proof is in the pudding, these “before and after” images certainly assure us that the effectiveness of pure emu oil is astounding and should be worth sharing.

Without further ado, here are some of our amazing before & afters, and the science behind the case:

Before and After using Emu Spirit | The science behind the case

The case: Emu oil has been used here to treat burns and other wounds, helping to reduce inflammation, scarring and soothe skin irritation.

The science: Researchers from the Southern Medical University of China discovered that topical applications of emu oil could reduce inflammation in scald wounds. The results are promising; emu oil aided in reducing scar formation in healed burn wounds, and was found effective when applied even 1-3 days after the injury!

Before and After using Emu Spirit | The science behind the case

The case: This is a before and after comparison after applying Oil of Emu on the scalp daily. We can see some excellent results as the hair is growing back thicker at the crown of the head!

The science: A study from Dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine researched the factors that stimulate and inhibit skin and hair growth using emu oil and corn oil as a comparison. Results showed there was about a 20% increase in DNA synthesis, which means that there was a 20% increase in the growth activity of the skin that received (a processed emu oil), compared to those that received corn oil.

Before and After using Emu Spirit | The science behind the case

The case: This shows just how quickly Emu Spirit can work its healing magic. After applying Oil of Emu on a skin burn as a result of our customer accidentally grabbing a searing hot cooking pan. This resulted in sore, swollen and blistered skin – ouch! Immediately, she applied Emu Oil over the cooking burn area of the skin, and saw immediate results over 24 hours.

The science: Emu oil is rich in antioxidants such as Vitamins A, D and E, Vitamin K2, essential fatty acids, linoleic acid, palmitic acid and oleic acid. It’s incredibly nourishing for your skin because it is naturally rich in collagen, nutrients and healthy fats, which makes emu oil regenerative in nature.

Before and After using Emu Spirit | The science behind the case

The case: This is “swell” example of Emu Oil’s effectiveness in treating a seriously swollen knee. Our customer used Emu Spirit Muscular and Arthritic Rub daily and saw a significant reduction in the swelling. By utilizing the superior unique penetrative and anti-inflammatory properties of emu oil, the swelling (e.g. the inflammation) had drastically decreased.

The science: A research conducted by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, Australian Government shows that emu oil has an effect on inflammation in human cells. The suppression of these pro-inflammatory cytokines is consistent with a study using a mouse model of inflammation, which reported a decrease in both IL-1α and TNF-α following topical application of emu oil (Yoganathan et al. 2003). They also reported that the decrease in these pro-inflammatory cytokines was associated with a decrease in inflammation.

Before and After using Emu Spirit | The science behind the case

The case: This is a classic example of when we need to seek natural remedies when all else fails. This customer experienced a bug bite that turned into a rash. Several steroid-based topical treatments didn’t help, however rubbing Oil of Emu twice daily on the inner elbow shows a noticeable reduction in redness, itchiness and skin dryness after 4 days of use.

The science: According to Dr. Leigh Hopkins, Pharm. D. in the US all cells produce hormones which are coming from these fatty acids. These hormones affect all aspects of the activities of a specific cell. They play a role in inflammations, the healing process and the dying of a cell. If you don’t consume sufficient of these “good” fatty acids, your body cannot work efficiently. The oil supplies through its essential fatty acids the need to have the cells function normal. If you see the skin as the largest cell wall there is, you can say that a dry, raw skin is a sign of a lack of essential fatty acids.

4 Ways to use Emu Oil


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.


4 Ways to use Emu Oil scalp care

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 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.

A stocked up kitchen and spending most of your waking hours in the same home is a recipe for inconsistent meal times and increased snacking throughout the day. It may be difficult to stick to a regimented meal plan, but by preparing your meals and designating set meal times, this will help to:

– Ensure a well-balanced diet, regulate your consumption and prevent over-indulgence

– Curb the temptation to order take-out food

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!

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.

5 Tips For a Healthier Christmas

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s a notorious time to indulge. While it’s so easy to eat more than your usual portions amidst the festivities, it’s never a great feeling the next day. Thankfully, if you can eat consciously during the Christmas period, you’ll be able to get through it without too much impact to your health and waistline.

Here’s our 5 simple tips for a healthier Christmas:

5 Tips For a Healthier Christmas

1. Don’t go to a party on an empty stomach
Being too hungry will almost guarantee you overindulging on unhealthy foods. It’s a good idea to eat a light meal before you head out, so you don’t fill up on high calorie meals. Grabbing a yoghurt, smoothie or piece of fruit before you head out will help you curb your cravings so you’re not grabbing the first snack you see when you arrive at the party.
It’s also handy when you’re not sure what your host will be serving.

 

5 Tips For a Healthier Christmas

2. Don’t stand near the food table

This one is easy to remember. Avoid standing near the food table because you are more likely to pick at the food. Instead, walk around and go chat to everyone. The further you are away from the food, the more likely you won’t end up consuming too many calories. When you do eat, eat sitting down. When we eat standing, we’re not paying attention to what we’re eating and how much we’re eating. Grab your plate, fill it up and find a seat.

 

5 Tips For a Healthier Christmas

3. Limit your alcohol
Getting caught up in the festivities means it’s easy to have one too many. Limit your alcohol intake by making every second drink a glass of water. This way, you stay hydrated throughout the event, and you end up consuming fewer calories.

5 Tips For a Healthier Christmas

4. Serve yourself
If you’re eating your meal hosted by a close friend or relative, try and serve yourself. You’ll be able to have more control over your portion size, and avoid feeling obligated to eat everything on your plate so as to not offend the host! You can also hold the dressing, or ask for the dressing or sauce on the side to help keep the calories of your meal lower.

5 Tips For a Healthier Christmas   

5. Drink pure emu oil the next day

If your gut is feeling worse for wear the next day, try taking a spoonful of pure emu oil. With its proven anti-inflammatory properties, emu oil could be beneficial in alleviating the symptoms of a wide range of digestive issues. Studies have shown emu oil may have the ability to improve intestinal repair naturally, while also reducing inflammation in the digestive tract.

 

Is your Allergy Medication Interfering with your Appetite?

Allergy season is well and truly upon us, and the tornado of pollen coming your way means we’re heading to the pharmacy in droves. But did you know the allergy medication could have unpleasant side effects to your diet? Researchers have suggested that allergies and weight gain might go hand in hand, and that could be associated with the drugs you take to treat them.

While there isn’t a clear link between weight gain and allergies, researchers suggested that inflammation could play a role. Fat cells release chemicals that promote inflammation, and an allergic reaction triggers inflammation as well. This means, people with high levels of inflammation in their bodies are likely to suffer both conditions. A double whammy.

A more basic explanation is that some older medications are sedating, causing you to be a couch potato. Drugs that make you tired are more than likely to interfere with your regular exercise routine. Secondly, antihistamines can make you thirsty, and the signal for thirst can be confused with the signal for hunger. That in turn might make you likely to eat when you really should be taking a sip of water. Whatever the explanation, we have a few suggestions up our sleeves to help combat spring allergies without ruining your summer beach body.

 

Here are a few tips to keep allergy season from derailing your diet:

  Is your Allergy Medication Interfering with your Appetite? 

1. Opt for newer antihistamines. If you want a medication that won’t make you prone to skipping workouts, choose one of the non-sedating options.


Is your Allergy Medication Interfering with your Appetite?

2. Get diagnosed.
Sometimes over-the-counter medications just don’t cut it. They might make you hungry, tired or generally miserable. Consider seeing an allergist. Knowing what you’re allergic to makes it easy to find prescription medications without all the side effects. You could even have an allergy shot, which doesn’t have the side effects that antihistamines do.

Is your Allergy Medication Interfering with your Appetite?

3. Stay hydrated.
Make sure you’re always sipping on water whenever you’re taking allergy medications. This can help prevent your mind from confusing thirst with hunger. Add fruit, cucumbers and herbs to your water to make it more interesting. Better yet, add a few drops of pure emu oil to further help reduce inflammation-based symptoms of allergies.

Is your Allergy Medication Interfering with your Appetite?

4. Fight allergies with food.
If allergy medications are causing you to overeat, try to indulge in healthy food. Some foods can provide allergy relief such as onions, peppers, berries and parsley, all containing ‘quercetin’ – a natural plant chemical that may reduce ‘histamine reactions’.

All the Good Fats

Emu oil contains all three types of omega fatty acids (3, 6 and 9). Approximately 50% of its fat content is from monounsaturated omega-9 fat, called oleic acid. It makes it an excellent fatty acid supplement. Emu oil also contains various natural healing compounds like antioxidants, carotenoids, flavones, polyphenols and phospholipids. It’s important that your emu oil comes from a reputable source, as the oil is readily absorbed into your skin. Where possible, choose TGA listed products, such as Emu Spirit, which means the product has been assessed by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration under the Australian Department of Health) for their quality and safety. Emu Spirit’s products are made with pure oil of emu, using our patented rendering process that produces a stable, 100% pure oil that maintains the same natural molecular structure as the raw, natural product.
