Health Products - Emu Oil

Emu oil is an oil made from the refined fat of the Australian Emu, (Dromaius novaehollandiae), Australia's tallest native bird which grows to more than 1.5 m (5 feet) tall and weighs over 45 kilograms (100 pounds).

These giant flightless birds are farmed for their meat as well as their oil and the emu is the second largest living bird after the African ostrich.

History

Emu oil has been used for thousands of years by the Australian aborigines for the treatment of burns, wounds, bruises, and as a pain reliever for muscular aches and pains, insect bites, sunburn, windburn, dry skin and joint disorders. 

Properties

Emu oil consists of approximately 70% unsaturated fatty acids of which the largest component is oleic acid – a mono-unsaturated fatty acid. Emu oil also contains about 20% linoleic (Omega 6) acid and 1-2% linolenic (Omega 3) acid. Emu oil is a complete neutral lipid, since emu oil lacks phospholipid, penetrates the skin easily and it also has anti-inflammatory and immune enhancing properties.
