Emu Oil Reduces The Sting Of Insect Bites and Stings


We’ve been using emu oil for years to take the sting out of insect bites. Pure oil alone will reduce the itching and pain. Emu Oil has been shown to work as a naturally occurring analgesic although as yet the individual compounds responsible have not been isolated. More research has been done on the anti –inflammatory qualities of the oil. These studies show clearly that emu oil reduces swelling, but again have not isolated individual compounds.

What we can tell you is that if you are bit or stung, pure emu oil will relieve the itch and reduce the swelling. When combined with menthol or other natural analgesic ingredients as in our DuoFlex Pain Relief Cream, the relief is even more effective.

A number of people also seem to suffer a post infection stage from insect bites. They are left with small red dots for long periods of time after the initial bite. Applying emu oil enhances the healing process and reduces scarring.
