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.

 

Health for the Whole Family: Using Emu Oil for Kids

Health for the Whole Family: Using Emu Oil for Kids

Parents stock their medicine cabinets with all sorts of remedies to keep their kids healthy; from insect repellent, to antibacterial creams to treat grazes and bruises, moisturiser to relieve dry and cracked skin during winter weather, and vitamins or minerals to aid digestion. Would you believe us if we told you that one all-natural product may help treat all these ailments and more? (You guessed it; emu oil)

There are so many great uses for emu oil, it truly deserves a spot in the family first-aid kit!

Here’s why no family should be without a bottle of emu oil…

Health for the Whole Family: Using Emu Oil for Kids

1. It may soothe problem skin

Do you have a cabinet full of half-used creams that you tried out for your kids’ chapped skin, eczema, rosacea, bug bites and rashes? If you’re having trouble finding an effective cream to treat these skin conditions, why not try a natural remedy instead, and add a few drops of emu oil to your kids’ skin. The anti-oxidant rich emu oil is easily absorbed into the skin, and may soothe a range of skin complaints, including dry, flaky and cracked skin. Emu oil is gentle enough to use on sensitive skin and babies too.

2. It may relieve the pain of bumps and bruises

Active little ones are always running around, jumping up and down, and inevitably getting bump and bruises. To help reduce swelling and relieve the pain, you can try applying emu oil onto the affected area and massaging into the skin. The potent anti-inflammatory effects of emu oil allow it to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and provide relief from pain. When the kids suffer from minor injuries due to bumps and tumbles, you know what product you need to whip out immediately.

3. It may treat cuts, scrapes and scratches

Emu oil is a great remedy for minor skin wounds, again, thanks to its anti-inflammatory and bacteriostatic properties (that help relieve pain and prevent bacterial from reproducing). The antioxidants in emu oil may also help protect the skin from further damage, and the linoleic acid found in pure emu oil may help to prevent scarring. Whenever you are treating a family member for a cut or scrape, remember to apply emu oil to the affected area.

4. It may boost your inner health

Sometimes (when no one is scratched, bitten or bruised and needs attending to) we get some time to think about our family’s general health and wellbeing. When you need an all-purpose health boost for your kids, emu oil could be the holy grail product you need. Emu oil is a rich source of omega fatty acids, which your body needs but does not produce naturally. These essential fatty acids have been shown to be highly beneficial to skin, hair, muscles and joints, and may also help regulate mood and settle digestion. If your family is not a fan of oily fish such as salmon, then a spoonful of emu oil is a great dietary supplement to help the whole family boost their inner health.

3. Mix up a glass of health

Method: Add a spoonful of honey and a dash of lime or lemon juice with a few drops of Emu Spirit 100% Pure Oil of Emu to a cold or room temperature glass of water. Stir until the oil is blended in and add a sprig of rosemary to garnish.

Use it for: A health boost in the morning before breakfast, or as a tea replacement to wind down in the afternoon. The sweet and sour taste can help to mask the emu oil, to create a more enjoyable way to ingest your daily spoonful of a natural health remedy.

Why? When ingested, emu oil’s natural anti-inflammatory abilities work from the inside out. Emu oil is a rich source of omega fatty acids, which are essential healthy fats that we can only obtain through diet.

As an added bonus, emu oil may help regulate mood, settle digestion and nourish your skin from within.
