3 surprising ways to use emu oil
Thought emu oil was just for aches and pains? Or maybe you bought a bottle to soothe your eczema. This natural Aussie hero is famous for its hydrating and pain-relieving qualities, but it’s really an all-round health champ. Here’s a few of the little-known ways it could improve your wellbeing.
1) Soothe your digestion
Research into emu oil shows promising results in the area of digestive health. Emu oil has anti-inflammatory qualities, so scientists from Adelaide University have been studying the effect of the oil on ulcerative colitis. They found that it can repair damage to the bowel caused by common chemotherapy treatments and may prevent ulcerative colitis developing into bowel cancer.
While research is yet to confirm the full therapeutic effects of emu oil, it’s thought that this natural product’s anti-inflammatory action may offer real relief for those suffering other inflammatory bowel disorders, such as Crohn’s disease and IBS.
2) Grow your hair
If you’re starting to lose your fine head of hair, emu oil might be the answer! The oil has been known to stimulate hair growth and even ‘wake up’ dormant follicles. One study, by Professor Michael Hollick from Boston University School of Medicine, found that treating scalp with emu oil resulted in a 20% increase in hair-growth activity, compared with corn oil.
If you want to give this natural remedy a try, rub a few drops of the oil into your scalp daily. Or, try using an emu oil-enriched shampoo and conditioner.
3) Combat ageing
Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural part of ageing, but emu oil might be able to help slow time’s effect on your face. The hydrating and antioxidant-rich oil makes a unique beauty product because it penetrates right through the epidermis (the outer layers of the skin) to deliver its nourishing goodness to where new cells are made. This makes emu oil an excellent moisturiser, hydrating skin and plumping it from within to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
If you’ve bought a bottle of emu oil to help with arthritis or other health concerns, try massaging a few drops into your face for a high-powered nightly serum. Or, try our luxurious skin-care products that are enriched with emu oil and other natural anti-ageing goodies.
