Emu oil: What is it and how does it work?
Let’s start with the basics: pure emu oil is simply refined emu fat. It’s a natural product that’s been used for thousands of years by Australia’s indigenous people, and it can be used both internally and externally to treat a range of health concerns.
Emu oil contains a rare concentration of triglycerides as well as omega-3, 6 and 9 essential fatty acids. These properties make it a powerful healing agent that penetrates deeply to fight inflammation in the body.
Inflammation is the source of a number of health issues, including arthritis, muscle aches, eczema and psoriasis. It’s also associated with infections and it’s what makes wounds red and sore. Whether you use it topically on your skin or take it in capsule form, emu oil’s natural anti-inflammatory action makes it an effective treatment for a wide range of health concerns, and it can even help accelerate wound and scar healing.
One of the ways emu oil is able to do its job is thanks to its amazing penetrative qualities. This unique oil is nearly 100 per cent triglyceride lipid, which is almost identical to the make-up of human skin, so it absorbs quickly and deeply. That means that emu oil can easily reach joint pain and skin conditions that occur far beneath the outer layers of the skin, delivering its inflammation-soothing goodness directly where it’s needed.
That same penetrative quality makes emu oil one of the best moisturisers you can buy, because it sinks past the outer layers of skin to hydrate and nourish the epidermis from within. Plus, it naturally contains oleic acid, an antioxidant that regenerates skin cells and fights wrinkles.
Emu oil has another standout quality – it’s bacteriostatic, which means it can’t grow bacterial organisms, making it a safe and gentle option for even the most sensitive skin types, as well as burns and wounds. It’s also a fantastic carrier oil – it can transport other active compounds blended with it deeper into your tissues, where they need to go.
It’s totally natural and it works
Here’s what a few of our customers have to say about Talyala Emu Oil.
"The benefits of emu oil are plenty: against muscle cramps, hurting bones, arthritis, it makes the skin really soft and it is very beneficial on cracked fingernails, which now grow strong and healthy."
Inge Borg, Hazelbrook NSW
"I have Achilles tendonitis, have had this on and off for the last ten years. I have been taking different anti-inflammatories, most quite potent, with limited effect. I decided to try massage with emu oil, as well as taking the capsules. My heels feel better than they have in several years. I have cut my medication to once a day, and plan to continue with the emu capsules, as long as it is effective. I have shared both the oil and capsules with my two sisters who also have assorted arthritic aches."
