One of the advantages of using Ultra Pure Lamp Oil is that it is environmentally friendly. It is odourless when it burns and is free of soot and smoke.
Emu oil can be taken as capsules, or it can be applied topically to affected areas.
Research does seem to support this.In the publication "Emu Oil - A Clinical Appraisal of this Natural and Long Used Product" for use on Epithelialised Wounds by Dr G H Hobday, he concluded that emu oil had demonstrated both scar reduction and anti-inflammatory action. Emu oil hastened post-surgery healing, and the healing of burns, by reducing inflammation, minimising scarring and soothing pain. Because emu oil is sterile, it could be used in an open area of the skin." Hobday also concluded: "It reduces irritation in eczema, the scarring of keloids and has advantages in skin grafting."
Emu aren't killed FOR their oil. They're raised in emu farms and killed for their meat... The fat and meat are then separated, and the fat is melted down and refined to oil. Most of the emu is used after it is killed... The feathers, hide, even claws do not go to waste. Sad, but at least they are not being killed ONLY for the oil.
Emu Oil is good for the skin for a couple reasons. First, it is know to regenerate skin cells and promotes collagen growth. Second, it contains high levels of Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids which are very important for skin health. Emu Oil has been proven to be anti-inflamatory, anti-fungal, anti-microbial and works as a mild analgesic (pain reliever). The aborigines of Australia have been using it for thousands of years and more recently, Emu Oil has been used by the Australian's & New Zealander's in hospitals as the first line of defense in burn treatment. Emu Oil is also the BEST carrier oil known to man. It can carry other herbs and nutrients deep into the layers of the skin like no other oil. Emu Oil is being used for scar management, general skin health, burns, cuts, scrapes, bumps, bruises, arthritis, acne, hair regrowth among many other things.
There are no studies to indicate that you should not take emu oil with Warfarin. Currently, the two seem to be a safe combination.
Yes. Emus are farmed for both their meat and "emu oil", a substance therapeutic for arthritis and rheumatism.
