Today I thought I would feature an especially beloved product, Emu Oil. When I recommend emu oil, people always ask me, “what is emu oil?” Well, it isn’t vegetarian, that is for sure. It comes from a bird, called an emu. It is best not to think too much about it, because if you just use it, you will be shocked and amazed. I first came across this wonderful product nearly 20 years ago. A rep from Jurassic Park, a company who makes emu oil, would come in to the store I worked at with a binder of before and after pictures that were hard to believe. There were horrible burns that were healed with minimal scarring, eczema so terrible you could feel the itch through the photo, completely relieved.
Why is emu oil so incredible?
Elasticity: It restores elasticity to tight skin. It really doesn’t matter why. You may have just had surgery. You may have old scarring. You may be chapped and tight. You may be saggy and droopy. Your skin maybe thin and papery. This stuff will make your skin supple and elastic. It is nothing short of shocking.
Healing: Scroll through before and after patients who used Emu Oil. The burn victims are some of the most incredible. With continued use of Emu Oil their skin was restored and healed in rapid order.
Soothing: This stuff is anti-inflammatory. When your skin is red and a mess of itching, call in the Emu Oil. It will soothe and calm your skin ills.
Emu oil is a combination of linolenic, linoleic, and oleic acids that actually get through your layers of skin. Usually, products that have any of these also have phospholipids that impair them from penetrating deeply. Emu Oil does not contain phospholipids so it gets to where you need elasticity, healing and soothing. Take the Emu plunge and try some out when your skin needs love.
