Firstly, let me start by telling you what on earth Emu Oil is, as taken from The Emu Oil Well website…
What is an Emu?
An emu is an indigenous Australian flightless bird.
Where does Emu Oil come from?
Emu oil is a product of the flightless Australian bird called the Emu. It comes from the thick pad of fat on the birds back which nature provided as protection from other fighting birds and from the harsh Australian sun.
What is Emu Oil?
The fat from the Emu is triple refined by molecular distillation in a rigorously tested and regulated process licensed by the Australian Government. This process removes all protein, bacteria and particulate matter. Emu Oil is a natural healing oil which is highly penetrating, anti-bacterial, and has anti-inflammatory properties beneficial to the body and skin. It is an odourless white solid at room temperature but melts at 20-22°C to become a clear golden coloured liquid.
What is in Emu Oil?
Emu oil contains the essential fatty acids; Linoleic acid (Omega-6), Linolenic acid (Omega-3), Oleic acid (anti-inflammatory), Palmitic acid, and some traces of other fatty acids. Emu Oil has the highest concentration of Omega 3 found in nature. These fatty acids are essential in our day-to-day lives to ensure that our bodies remain in top working order. The body not make them itself, so it is important to get these fatty acids from other sources. Emu Oil is an excellent source of these important fatty acids. Pure Australian Emu Oil has no hormones, bacteria or steroids in it.
What are the benefits of Emu Oil?
Emu Oil softens and moisturises the skin, heals chapped and dry skin, evenly tones the skin and softens wrinkles.
Emu Oil, when massaged into the skin quickly penetrates and saturates all the underlying tissues. It’s action moisturises the skin and provides anti-inflammatory effects to muscles and joints. Emu Oil is bacterio-static, so bacteria will not grow in it. Therefore, Emu Oil lasts a very long time. It is non-allergenic and as yet no side effects have ever been reported. It is non-comedogenic, so it will not block pores causing spots. Emu Oil is so gentle, it can be used, quite safely, on the most sensitive of skins, and importantly, you do not need to avoid the area round the eyes. Emu Oil heals and soothes sore muscles and joints, encourages re-growth of skin cells, and hair follicles. Emu Oil has anti-inflammatory properties which soothe joints and muscles. It is very effective because, when massaged into the skin, the oil penetrates right into the muscles and joints.
So, as you can see Emu Oil has amazing skincare properties and therefore I wanted to tell you all about a little pack I recently got. It is the perfect set for travelling with and is fabulous to take on holiday with you.
