What is Emu Oil?

  • Nature’s “perfect emollient” ~ absorbs into skin quickly; eases swelling while hydrating the skin
  • A superb transdermal carrier that promotes healing from the outside in & the inside out
  • Emu Oil helps other ingredients get into the tissues deeper (like Hemp Extract, Arnica, etc.)
  • Comes from the fat of the Emu


How do I use Emu Oil?

Apply a small amount of Emu Oil to all affected areas (dry skin, rashes, pain, etc.), and rub in until all of the oil is absorbed.  Apply as needed…a little goes a long way!
