Emu Oil Naturally
How long has Emu Oil been used in beauty products?
America first got into Emu Oil in the 1990's, then it slacked off mainly due to some unscrupulous people out to make a quick buck, which hurt honest people working the Emu farms to the manufacturers of Emu Oil products. The industry has used Emu Oil in beautfy products since the 90's. After that the Emu oil ranchers, farmers & manufacturers got together to form the American Emu Association (AEA) & developed strict quidelines for the safe use of Emu Oil by consumers. The AEA standards are based on FDA regulations for food oils and most manufacturers refine the oil higher than even AEA demands. Now big cosmetic firms are getting very interested in Emu Oil because they can see how effective it is and no side effects.
What are some of the benefits of using Emu Oil?
It is THE most moisturizing product out there. Emu Oil has the capacity to go deeper into the skin layers, not just sit on top of the skin as many oils (including mineral oil) do. Healing takes places from within. Any ingridents that are added to Emu Oil are also taken with it.
Emu Oil is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, non-comedogenic (doesn't clog pores), sounds pretty good? It IS. Emu Oil also has the capacity to help reduce bad cholesterol, some people get an energy boost from it too (I don't).
What is your favorite item from the line you carry?
I personally test each product on my website, I have my family and regular customers try them out also. Usually I'm right about the product if I don't like it getting a consensus from the others. I have very high standards for the products I sell. The biggest difference in opinions usually comes down to the fragrance used in some of the products. Essential oils are powerful & healing as well. EO's are the only fragrances I use in any products. Some do not have fragrance either.. I have rejected many products as I am very picky what I put on my website. To pick a favorite would be really hard to do. My newest product is a Non-Sulfate Shampoo. I have had repeated customers requests for this and I have been searching for at least 2 years. I have rejected many shampoos until I found this one. This is VERY GOOD, even on my long, thick, coarse constantly dyed hair. If it passes my tough hair test (it does) and the rest of the "guinea pigs" agree, it goes on my site. This one was an overwhelming positive response. I'm pretty sure my customers will agree once they try it.
How is the oil harvested or made?
Emus have a large sack of fat on their backs. This is where all the Emu Oil comes from once rendered from the bird (yes, the bird is killed). From there the fat is immediately frozen & shipped to a processing plant to refine the fat into oil. The first pass is considered "animal grade" and can be used for pets, other livestock. It goes through another refining process, for the regular Emu Oil that is safe to use for people. Additional processing also will give triple refined oil and clear oils. The manufacturers of Emu Oil are always looking for ways to improve the refining process.
Is the oil safe for consumption, aren't there oil pills?
Yes, you can ingest fully refined Emu Oil. Emu Oil is very good for Arthritis, other joint pain, sore muscles, aches & pains, bruises. I have several medical problems which cause me to hurt all the time. I do not like taking pain pills (they make me too groggy to work, interact with my kids, friends, pets, or just plain "be normal") Chronic pain like mine can steal away your life. Using Emu Oil helps tremendously in getting my life back. I use both the topical products and the pills. I carry two different Emu Oil pills on my site. A.R.P (Arthritis Reducing Plan) and Multi-Omega pills which are Emu Oil and Flax Seed oils working in combination to reduce bad cholesterol.
Only very recently have I heard about Emu oil. Do you see it gaining popularity?
Most definitely! Many people, like me, can't use prescriptions very much (I get worse on
antibiotics, etc, and pain pills wipe me out so I can't function at all), others are just choosing more natural or alternative solutions to their problems or what they want to accomplish.
