Over 1000 years ago, the Aborigines of Australia discovered emu oil and used it to help heal wounds, relieve pain and protect their skin from the blazing sun. Today, several scientific studies have shown that emu oil has exceptional healing properties. In addition, emu oil contains omega 3, 6, 7 and 9 all of which are healthy fatty acids that do wonders for your health. Emu oil is indeed an excellent dietary supplement. Emu oil that is 100% pure is a natural health product that everyone should use on a daily basis.
Pure emu oil quickly absorbs into the skin right up to the blood vessels tanks to the fact that it is high in unsaturated fat (67%) compared with human skin, its high levels of oleic acid (omega-9), and lack of phospholipids, which are large molecules that limit absorption through skin (Dr. R. Nicolosi, U. Massachusetts).
Emu oil has exceptional anti-inflammatory and non-toxic properties (Whithouse, Turner et al., Australia). Its unsaturated fatty acids (omega 3-6-7-9) are known to ease joint and muscle pain as well as flare-ups (American Emu Association). Furthermore, oleic acid is the best means to transport active substances, thereby increasing their effectiveness.
According to dermatologist A. Zemtsov (Australian J, Dermat., 1996), emu oil is highly moisturizing, non-comedogenic (does not block pores), bacteriostatic (reduces the development of bacteria), non-irritating and emulsifying (mixes well with other substances. Moreover, emu oil can be used to regenerate the skin (Dr. M. Hollick, U. de Boston), minimize wrinkles and other skin problems (G. Habday, Western Australia).
Emu oil is a non-photosensitizer (does not cause sun sensitivity), providing an additional barrier to protect the skin from harmful rays (M. Lehman 2000).
Emu oil helps to heal deep wounds that affect muscles, tendons, nerves and the skin. It is also an excellent means to rebuild tissue (Dr. Hopkins).
For burns, the results are conclusive: emu oil is soothing to apply, reduces inflammation and seepage, helps to heal quickly and restores the skin’s original pigmentation (Dr. John Grisworld, Director of Timothy J. Harner Burn Center, Texas).
Despite appearances, there is a wide variety of emu oil products on the market—with varying degrees of quality. Some emu oil products are excellent and effective, while others are mediocre. What causes such a difference in quality? Emu oil is very difficult product to manufacture. From raising emus to bottling the emu oil, there are many steps to follow. Each of these steps can cause a significant drop in emu oil quality. This article describes a five-step test you can perform to determine the quality of your emu oil.
Emu oil is known to quickly penetrate deep into the skin—a distinct advantage versus other products. However, some emu oils penetrate better than others. Low-quality emu oils remain at the skin’s surface, leaving a greasy feeling behind. Do a test! Remember that emu oils that penetrate your skin quickly are more effective than those that stay on the surface.
Emu oil that is odorless, white and homogeneous is definitely a product that has undergone an excellent transformation process from emu fat to emu oil. The better the transformation process, the better and longer-lasting your emu oil will be. Contrarily, low-quality emu oil is characterized by odors, yellow coloring and non-uniform consistency (the oil remains at the surface and the fat remains at the bottom. The test is easy: all you have to do is look and smell!
Although you don’t ingest emu oil, it nevertheless penetrates your skin. That means that emu oils that include growth hormones, as with any other type of food and cosmetic product, can be dangerous. Growth hormones have been proven to cause certain types of cancers, weaken the immune system, vulnerability in children, early puberty, sperm deficiency and other illnesses. To determine if your emu oil has any growth hormones, look at the label at the back of your bottle. It should mention that it is “free from growth hormones.”
Two types of businesses sell emu oil: producers and importers. If you have the option, choose emu oil that comes from manufacturers. Importers generally buy emu oil from many different producers, which makes ensuring quality control very difficult. How were the emus fed? How were they raised? Which transformation process was used? Does the oil contain growth hormones or antibiotics? Furthermore, the longer the emu oil has to be transported before reaching the shelves, the more likely its quality will reduce over time. The quality of emu oil from importers is extremely irregular because each bottle contain oil that comes from different producers. Do the test! Look at the address of the company on the emu oil bottle and verify if it owns an emu farm.
The containers in which emu oil is bottled is very important. Low-quality plastic bottles can contaminate both your emu oil and ultimately your body. If there is absolutely no indication of the type of plastic the bottle is made out of, consider the container as being of low quality.
Emu oil must be stored at a cool temperature or in the refrigerator so that it lasts a long time. The cap must be screwed tightly on the bottle to ensure that air does not penetrate it. If these storage conditions are met, emu oil can last up to two or three years.
Only a small amount of emu oil is needed to reap its benefits (a few drops suffice). Apply over a large area of your skin. It is important to apply emu oil as often as possible (several times a day).
