Health and Beauty Benefits of Emu Oil

Health Benefits of Emu oil

Emu is an Australian bird and in ancient days, the oil extracted from their fat deposits were used by the aborigines of Australia for various healing and therapeutic purpose. Recently, Emu oil is becoming pretty popular for its health and beauty benefits all over the world. The list of benefits is so long and just makes one go and grab it from the stores. I wanted to write this article since I saw an Emu shop near my mom’s place. Today, I just did it as my mom has visited the shop and she was listing all the benefits of this precious oil !!

Initially, the emu oil was used only for healing ailments. A few of them were to treat wounds, pains and bruises. The same was used even for muscle, bone and joints disorders. Pure emu oil is said to be in good yellow color (considering the emu was grown healthy with good feed] and only such pure emu oil claims to do all the healing. The more it became popular and commercial, more is the threat of fraud/duplicate emu oils in the market. So, one has to be very careful before purchasing it from the shops.

Alert – One of my friend who purchased the emu oil from a local shop, had so many skin problems along with which she was cheated a large amount for a tiny bottle of that oil. So, I request everyone to do proper research or go only to reliable shops to purchase the same.

Some ways to distinguish original from the duplicate:

• Emu oil is non-sticky and the one my friend bought was very sticky.
• Get samples before you actually buy a bottle for yourself. My friend got serious skin problems.
• Check the color of the emu oil.
• Check the ingredients before buying the oil.
• Go to the shops that sell original products and not the fake ones.
• Check whether the emu oil is a certified one.

Availability:

Emu oil has been used overseas to make products like lotions, moisturizers, soap, bath oil, lip balm, shampoo, conditioners, etc. Emu oil as such is also available along with emu eggs.

Benefits:

• Used as an effective moisturizing ingredient in cosmetics.
• Helps to treat wrinkles and fine lines.
• Helps to treat stretch marks.
• Helps to treat arthritis.
• Helps cure acne.
• Helps in reducing hair loss.
• Helps to cure eczema.
• Used as a pain reliever.
• Helps cure headache.
• Helps burns and bruises.
• Helps in scar repair.
• Helps cure skin rashes.
• Helps cure sun burn

And the list goes on and on.

If at all we could spot the original emu oil and emu products, then I think we are one of the lucky ones who can enjoy all the above-listed benefits. I am still not sure about the emu oil available near my mom’s place. Once I find a trustworthy seller, I will share the address details with all you girls. Hope you all enjoyed the article and if any one knows more about the emu oil and emu products, do share the same here.

I guess vegans like me, or who like cruelty free products would find it very difficult to use this……I got interested and then read online about this…..

Me too will find it difficult to use an oil prepared from animals.. :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails :chewnails

Hi Mugdha.. I don’t think they will kill Emus for the oil rather they will take them from the dead ones..
