What Are The Benefits of Emu Oil?
#1 – Apply Emu Oil At Night For Optimal Cell Regeneration; i.e. younger, healthier looking skin
Emu oil is transdermal (i.e. it really gets in there) and contains essential fatty acids including Omegas 3, 6 & 9. These essential fatty acids are vital to a healthy body, and nourish the skin. Chronic dry, flaky skin can be a sign of a deficiency of essential fats in your diet. Emu oil also contains Oleic acid, a substance that has a local anti-inflammatory effect on dermal tissues. It’s really great to apply Emu oil at night when, as much research has shown, cell regeneration is optimal.

#2 – Unrefined Emu Oil
One tip I can share is that there is a huge difference between refined and unrefined emu oil.
Unrefined emu oil has not been bleached, re-melted and/or filtered and, thus, retains more of its vitamin payload. It's harder to find. Much. And is often called “soap grade”. It does have a slight scent … but oh well. But it's the real deal. And your skin will know the difference.
Often refined emu — because it's crystal clear — has been diluted with a less expensive oil like soybean. So consumers are paying a high price for soybean oil with a bit of emu. Suppliers who don't offer the unrefined speak in highly negative terms about it … because they can't get it in quantity. The unrefined is milky and opaque, loaded with skin-loving vitamins and moisturizer. It's thicker than the unrefined too. I just think it's silly to call your products natural and then use refined anything.

#3 – Emu Oil
Emu oil is a gentle and effective anti-aging ingredient for skin care. It has natural qualities that can help the skin feel soft, rejuvenated and helps repair the skin. It is highly penetrating, soothing to sunburn and irritated skin, non-greasy, absorbs quickly. Non-comedogenic, does not clog pores. Contains vitamin E and A, a known skin repairer and anti-oxidant, oleic acid, a skin cell regenerator and anti-wrinkle agent. Helps thicken skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines for mature skin; increases firmness. Other uses of emu include wound healing, rich in omega 3-6-9. Also it has anti-inflammatory properties, eases muscle and joint pains. Emu oil relieves the sting of insect bites.

#4 – Emu Oil: What Doesn't It Do?
I can't say enough about Emu Oil. I always keep a bottle or two and use it almost daily. It is an amazing moisturizer, but even better its anti-inflammatory properties are astounding.
- Diaper Rash – Gone (or even drastically healed) in one, maybe two applications on the baby's bottom.
- Eczema – Apply alone or add to a small amount of good quality lotion (baby or adult, preferably natural). It makes the steroid cream from the pharmacies obsolete.
- Eyes – Moisturizes. Reduces and prevent wrinkles. Reduces dark circles. I apply it nightly. One tiny drop and apply just like you would eye cream.
- You can also use it to moisturize cuticles. Add some to your favorite lotion for an extra burst of deep moisture. Find products that contain emu oil for pain relief.
- Use it on your entire face (especially if you live in Las Vegas).
#5 – Emu Oil Helps with Hair Growth
Emu oil has been proven to improve circulation in the scalp and can help increase the growth rate of hair. Shampoos and conditioners containing emu oil along with other quality ingredients can make healthier and longer.
