Early history of use
The Australian Aborigines have been using
Emu Oil for thousands of years. They used
Emu Oil to help wounds heal quickly and to protect their skin from the
harsh Australian sun. This ancient remedy didn’t stay the secret of the Aborigines
for long as early Western settlers soon began to see the benefits of Emu Oil.
Emu Oil has been available in the UK for about 25 years now. During
this time the number of people using and benefiting from Emu Oil has increased
to tens of thousands.
Robert O’Hara Burke, a famous outback explorer,
used the oil to soothe his sunburn and in doing this he also found that it
helped his stiff elbow. It wasn’t long before most of the early settlers had a
pot of Emu Oil in their medicine cabinets. They began reporting remarkable
soothing and healing properties including relief of muscle and joint problems,
soothing of sun burn and helping to heal cuts, scrapes and bruises.
Modern uses of Emu Oil
Nowadays people are using Emu Oil all over
the world to help with a number of common ailments from sports injuries to dry
skin. A great deal of research has been done into this ancient remedy across
countries such as America, Australia and France and there has been very
promising results. Various Doctors have observed that Emu Oil can help ailments
such as eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, growing pains, muscle sprains and also
for hair regrowth. There is medical research and clinical trials to support the
anecdotal evidence provided by these regular users. These are widely reported
in the media and literature. We keep reports of all the scientific studies
regarding Pure Australian Emu Oil.
Emu Oil is also used for its cosmetic
value as a powerful moisturiser that doesn’t block pores, is suitable for all
skin types and has anti-aging properties that can help the skin to look more
youthful by keeping it supple, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
Unfortunately, there are also many
outrageous claims being made by Emu Oil distributors.
We do not make any claims that are not supported by proper scientific evidence.
We believe that it does no good to promote Emu Oil as the universal panacea
that some distributors would have us believe.
This is bound to disappoint and in the end, it is counter-productive. We have
heard no reports of it being good for headaches and it is not an aphrodisiac.
Emu Oil for Hair loss
Hair loss affects both men and women. By the age of 35, 40%
of men will have noticeable hair loss. For women, 65% will suffer obvious hair loss
by age 60.
Drug treatments takes at least a year to produce obvious results—and any
time away from treatment causes a recurrence of hair loss. Therefore, one would
need to continue using them forever.
these drugs are pricey and come with some very unpleasant side effects.
these drugs are not particularly effective because neither of them address the
real cause of hair loss.
Getting At the Root of Hair Loss
to experts, the top 3 causes of reduced hair growth are aging, hormonal
changes, and a family predisposition. But in most cases, what appears as hair
loss is actually hair degradation. With aging, a substance called
dihydrotestosterone (DHT) causes hair follicles to shorten their anagen, or
active phase. Hairs in balding patches will transform from thick, vital hairs
into fragile, colorless ones. Despite their lifeless appearance, most of these
hairs are still alive and connected to a steady supply of blood. However, as
the anagen cycle shortens, more and more hairs die and fall out. Over time, all
the follicles will become too thin to survive, and complete hair loss may
The key to reversing hair loss is to
“awaken” your sleeping hair follicles … before it’s too late.
Emu Oil “Wakes Up” 80% of Sleeping Hair Follicles
Michael Hollick, M.D., Ph.D., of the Boston University School of Medicine, led
a groundbreaking investigation into Emu Oil’s ability to revive hair follicles.
found that treating skin with Emu Oil resulted in a 20% increase in hair growth
activity, compared to skin treated with corn oil.
examining the hairs themselves, Hollick noted that they were “much more
robust,” and that “skin thickness was remarkably increased, suggesting that Emu
Oil for hair loss, both stimulated skin growth and hair growth.”
the most remarkable finding was that Emu
Oil awakened over 80% of hair follicles that had been “asleep”… and
caused hair to start growing again!
that there was an enhancement in the growth activity of the hair follicles…[a]
very good scientific indication that we were stimulating skin growth,” Hollick
believe that using emu oil for hair loss will have an amazing effect on hair
growth due to its abundance of essential
fatty acids (EFAs). One of those EFAs, oleic acid, may be the
secret behind emu oil’s ability to penetrate deep into the skin.
Margaret C. Craig-Schmidt, Associate Professor in the Department of Nutrition
and Food Science at Auburn University, said, “The high presence of oleic acid
in the emu oil may be one of the reasons
that [emu oil] is able to penetrate the skin to a large degree and at the same
time be able to carry active compounds through the skin where they can have an
effect in the body.”
Oil Hair Growth Study Results
clinical study from England,
a few drops of Emu Oil were applied and massaged into the participants scalp.
Participants saw an average hair regrowth of 8% per month and an average of 48% regrowth over six months.
Beware of “Rendered” Emu Oil
the increasing popularity of emu oil for hair loss, unscrupulous vendors have
introduced “rendered,” unrefined emu
oil into the market. This means the oil has only been filtered, and may still
contain contaminants. Additionally, there are different means by which emu oil
can be refined. One method, for instance, uses caustic chemicals such as lye.
The best suppliers will use an all-natural means of refining that relies on
clays to filter the oil. Check the label before purchasing to make sure your
brand of emu oil has been properly refined and purified.
for Best Use
- According to hair re-growth experts, emu oil
should be massaged into the scalp
3 times daily to maximize results.
- Whenever convenient, apply a larger quantity of
oil and leave it on for 20-30 minutes before rinsing.
- When one follows this protocol, signs of
re-growth usually become evident within 30-90 days
Australian Emu Oil vs American Emu Oil
The Emu Oil we buy comes directly from Australia.
It makes no mysterious trips to Canada
before it gets here. It is not American.
We would not sell American Emu Oil because it is the product of intense farming
practices requiring the use of antibiotics, steroids and other undesirable
hormones. Please look below at what the main differences are:

Did you know that Australian Emu Oil is exported to the USA?
One of the
largest companies utilizing Emu oil in the U.S.

The genetics of
the Emus are superior in that each generation of Australian birds exists under
the following conditions:
Australian Emus consume a diet that is
almost exclusively, and in some cases exclusively,
made up of natural leaves, bushes and insects that provide the Emus with a
resistance that birds in the U.S.
generally do not have, thus eliminating the need for medications.
and U.S. Emus produce different types of oil when raised in different
geographic areas. Some of this is due to
dietary differences, some due to external.
All Australian Emu Oil, in our opinion, is of a superior quality. Some lots of oil that may vary in colour
appear to be even more biologically active than other lots.
There is a
biologically active yellow-coloured component present in most Emu Oil, but more
abundant in some batches. There have been patents granted by the US government
(to a group of Australian researchers) relating to the anti-inflammatory
capabilities of this yellow-coloured component.
These Australians have conducted over a decade of research on all facets
of Emu Oil and the genetics of Emus.

is a natural healing oil which is highly penetrating, anti-bacterial and has
anti-inflammatory properties beneficial to the body and skin. It is an
odourless white solid at room temperature but melts between 18 & 22°C.
What are the benefits of Emu Oil?
Emu Oil moisturises even the driest of
skin, evenly tones it and softens wrinkles. It is also deeply penetrating so
when rubbed into the skin it quickly saturates the underlying tissues. This
makes it great for muscle and joint problems where it can provide pain relief
and ease stiffness.
It can also help to promote cell regrowth
and is therefore very effective on cuts and scrapes as well as in shampoo and
conditioner form to combat hair loss.
Emu oil contains sterols, with
HDL-Cholesterol (good cholesterol),alpha tocopherol(Vitamin E) Vitamin A and
collagen are present in significant quantities.
Varying amounts of natural antioxidants
besides the naturally occurring Vitamin E (carotinoids, flavones) are also
present in the raw oil.

Where does Emu Oil come from?
is a product of the flightless Australian bird called the Emu. It comes from
the thick pad of fat on the bird’s back which nature supplied as protection
from other fighting birds and from the harsh Australian sun. The bird is
processed by typical livestock processing means. Special care is taken in
processing the bird in order to preserve and remove from the bird the subcutaneous
layer of fat. Once the subcutaneous layer of fat is removed from the emu bird,
the layer of fat is processed to obtain Emu Oil.The fat is triple-refined by
molecular distillation in a rigorously tested and regulated process licensed by
the Australian Government. This process removes all protein, bacteria and
What is in Emu Oil?
Emu oil contains the essential fatty
acids; Linoleic acid (Omega-6), Linolenic acid (Omega-3), Oleic acid
(anti-inflammatory), Palmitic acid, and some traces of other fatty acids. Emu
Oil has the highest concentration of Omega 3 found in nature. These fatty acids
are essential in our day-to-day lives to ensure that our bodies remain in top
working order. The body not make them itself, so it is important to get these
fatty acids from other sources. Emu Oil is an excellent source of these
important fatty acids. Pure Australian Emu Oil has no hormones, bacteria or
steroids in it.
What makes the oil so sought after?
Other than the fact that Emu Oil can be
used to relieve a number of medical conditions as well as keep skin and hair
healthy it also contains two very important essential fatty acids.
– These fatty acids are good for the heart and help to keep cholesterol levels
Omega 4 (Linoleic acid) – This is another essential fatty acid which the
body needs to
promote cell growth, however, it is not
produced naturally within the body so must be obtained through the diet.
These essential fatty acids are important for
controlling the body’s functions such as blood clotting, inflammation, and cell
growth which makes Emu Oil the perfect solution to dry skin, cuts, bruises and
joint pain. These essential fatty acids can now be part of your diet in Emu Oil

· Natural Anti-Inflammatory
‘’From clinical experience with Emu Oil, it becomes obvious that its two
major actions were its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to
penetrate the skin." Dr. G.R. Hobday, Australia.
‘’In addition to cosmetic uses, laboratory experiments and analysis of
Emu Oil both in Australia and in the US have confirmed that Emu Oil has the
ability to reduce inflammation of the joints. Emu Oil naturally contains a high
level of linolenic acid (a substance know to ease muscle ache and joint pain)
and oleic acid, which provides a local anti-inflammatory effect." Dr.

the oil - penetrating, emulsifying, non-comedogenic, non-irritating, and highly
moisturizing - are true.’’ Dr. Alexander Zemtsov Texas Tech University.
‘’Why does Emu Oil have such a penetrating effect? Because of the lack
of phosphorus in our skin. Our skin is phospho-lipid deficient. In other words,
there is no phosphorus in our skin. If you put anything on your skin that has
phosphorus in it, our skin is "programmed" to keep it from
penetrating. Any time you put anything on your skin that is phospho-lipid
deficient, or has no phosphorus, it penetrates right through. ‘’Allen Strickland, Ozark, Alabama.

· Burn Pain and Scarring,
Speeds Wound Healing
American Burn Association, Chicago
Illinois, March 18 - 21, 1998
Title: "EVALUATION OF EMU OIL IN LUBRICATION AND TREATMENT OF
HEALED BURN WOUNDS"
Authors and Degrees: M. Penturf, Ph.D., Rd; S. O'Banion, RPh, J.
Institution, City and State: TEXAS
CENTER, LUBBOCK, TEXAS
Emu Oil has been reported to have significant anti-inflammatory effects,
and has been used both in cosmetics and therapeutic vehicles. This experiment was
conducted to evaluate Emu Oil as a lubricant and an aid in reducing scar
formation in healed burned wounds.
Ten patients were evaluated in a randomized double blind study for a
minimum of six months. Patients served as their own control by utilizing bilateral
wound areas for application of Emu Oil and the placebo lubricant on independent
sites respectively. Patients were instructed to apply both lotions daily on an
as needed basis.
During scheduled outpatients clinic visits the Vancouver Scar Assessment
Scale evaluated patients' wounds. Photos were taken each clinic visit.
Patient's days range from 195 to 385 days before discontinuation. All the
patients were men, age ranging from 24-62 years of age.
Per scar assessment, significant differences were noted in pigmentation
and pliability (p<0.02). There were no differences noted in circularity and
height of the healed wound, (p=0.08). Pictures were scored by a four person
blinded panel on pigmentation, scar maturation and general health of the skin.
Emu Oil treated areas healed significantly better (p<0.02) than
control in photo analysis. Statistics were calculated by analysis of variance,
means were separated with the F-protected predicated difference test. The
results of this pilot study are promising, however, additional research is
needed to further elucidate any therapeutic qualities of this oil.
