The emu oil benefits are something that was discovered by the Aboriginal Australians where the bird is native. It is believed that the consistency of emu oil is great as an anti-inflammatory and is extremely beneficial in many other ways.
Depending on the bird’s diet, there are different grades of emu oil that are used for different purposes. Emu oil is primarily comprised of the unsaturated fatty acids of the emu.
Derived from the fat reserves of the bird, the oil can be purchased in many different forms including salves, ointments, balms, moisturizers, creams and lotions. While the benefits have not necessarily been proven, the products are still very popular and people swear by the products as a natural medicine for many different conditions, mostly relating to skin.

It is thought that emu oil benefits the skin because it penetrates the skin much quicker and has a longer lasting moisturizing effect than other skin products, keeping skin naturally softer, healthier and vibrant. Native Australians have used the oils to treat arthritis, cuts, bruises, and even coughs to name a few. However, it has also been discovered that emu oil can be used to treat sunburns, swelling due to insect bites, sores and even fevers.
Some of the other health benefits of emu oil include using it as a treatment for acne due to its non-abrasive nature. It can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and even stretch marks. Moisturizers can help smooth rough skin around the elbows, heels and knees, soften cuticles around the nails and reduce any itchiness or flakiness that comes with weather and/or wind. It also aids to improve skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema.
Emu oil has also been thought to be excellent for the hair, many using it as a moisturizing conditioner. It also deeply penetrates the scalp and is thought to strengthen hair follicles and stimulates hair growth. It is much less harsh than other hair growth products on the market.
There are numerous benefits to the use of emu oil. It comes in so many different types of formulas, consistencies and varieties that there is one out there for anyone that suffers from any of these types of conditions. It is a simple and easy natural fix to numerous problems and extremely affordable compared to visiting a dermatologist.
