How To Use Emu Oil


Emu Oil can be used topically or ingested internally.

Emu Oil Applied Topically



For dry skin and mild rashes a small amount of pure Emu Oil can be applied directly to the area and lightly spread over the surrounding skin. A drop of Emu Oil will cover an area the size of the back of your hand. You do not need to rub Emu Oil in – it will absorb within a few minutes. Apply as needed. For small wounds, burns and open rashes remember that fully refined Emu Oil is bacteriostatic (inhibits growth and reproduction of bacteria without killing them). You must be certain that the area is clean first. Then pure Emu Oil can be introduced by dropping right on the area or by applying it with a clean swab or applicator.

Emu Oil Ingested



Emu Oil has numerous benefits when taken internally. It is recommended that you ingest emu oil using Gel Caps. The Gel Caps allow the oil to pass through the stomach and are then released in the upper intestinal tract where absorption is optimized. If you have trouble with Gel Caps you can ingest Emu Oil from the bottle. However, it is highly recommended that you use AEA certified oil only and keep it in the refrigerator to extend shelf life. 1500 mg (recommended dosage) is approximately 1/3 of a teaspoon.

Emu Oil Combined With Other Products



Emu Oil's ability to penetrate through skin and hair barriers allows it to enhance the ability of any product it is added to. Mix Emu Oil with other topical creams, hair products, even hair dye to increase penetration.
