Emu Oil Australian

EMU OIL has been used by the Australian Aboriginals for thousands of years. They have relied on its consistency of healing and therapeutic qualities to survive Australia’s harsh climate. From the number of studies conducted it has been shown that Emu Oil really does work. It is one of nature’s finest emollients and moisturisers. It’s well known in the pharmaceutical industries and is currently being used worldwide by sporting bodies.

Emu Oil is rich in Vitamins A, D, E, F, K2, Omegas 3, 6, 7 and 9. It is very moisturising and healing, it protects, nourishes and softens the skin. Emu Oil has the unique ability to penetrate the layers of skin so essential nutrients can be carried more efficiently deep beneath the surface. Emu Oil has an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin and has an anti-degenerative effect on skin cells. Emu Oil will build up a natural layer of moisture whilst opening up the pores of the skin letting your skin breathe naturally. Emu Oil is extremely low allergenic therefore, ideal for sensitive skin. It produces no known side effects and in its natural state doesn’t support and bacterial organisms.

Moisturiser: Emu Oil can be used on all parts of your body, i.e. Hands, arms, face, legs, hair etc. Great for sunburn, or wind burn (apply after heat has gone).
Massage: Emu Oil is a great carrier oil for mixing with other oils.
Arthritis, Inflammation, Aching Muscles & Digestive Disorders: Taken internally or externally it will penetrate deeply and work to cut down inflammation, open up blood capillaries and promote increased blood flow and oxygen to problem areas. This is essential for the healing of muscle and joint problems. Internally: 1-2 tsp daily. Externally: mix half emu oil and half eucalyptus oil for an excellent liniment.
Eczema, Dermatitis & Psoriasis: It will significantly reduce irritation and inflammation of the skin.
Bites: Emu Oil relieves and soothes irritated skin and insect bites (it also works well adding some Eucalyptus Oil to the Emu Oil).
Burns & Cuts: It promotes faster healing to these areas with reduced pain and scarring. (With burns wait for heat to go first).

Emu farming helps to protect our environment. The Emu  is native to Australia and can live in harmony with our land, this reducing the chemical dependence and land clearance needed for introduced species. The Emu is the largest of all Australian birds, it cannot fly, and can run at speeds of 48kms per hour.

FAQ – Our Emu Oil is 100% pure. It changes consistency with temperature it is like coconut oil, this is the best way for you to understand.  Simply shake before use and warm if you need to, I transfer it into a jar so its easy to get out at anytime. It is a wonderful product.

Emu Oil is naturally a creamy semi-solid consistency and only begins to liquefy above 24 degrees C. When your Emu Oil becomes very thick simply warm it under hot water. It will return to its natural consistency again when it cools. As ambient temperature varies, the consistency of Emu Oil will vary from thick at cold temperatures to completely liquid at high temperatures. If left undisturbed at room temperature for a number of weeks, Emu Oil can naturally divide into 2 fractions, one liquid and the other more solid, creamier form. The longer it is left, the more separation occurs. Together, these two fractions contain the entire benefits of Emu Oil. Separated, they do not contain all the beneficial components of the oil.
Some companies offered only the top liquid component, touting it as the “best” of the Emu Oil; however, we now know much more about the oil and research has concurred that both fractions should be present to be most beneficial for softening skin and reducing pain and irritations. When your oil separates, simply shake it together.

Did You Know…there’s a natural oil from the Australian Emu bird that has been shown to stop hair loss—and even regrow hair—in as little as 30 days?

Believe it or not, sterilized oil from the fat of an Australian bird may be the solution to the problem of hair loss. That’s right… using emu oil for hair loss will amaze you with the great results.

emu oil for hair loss   The emu is a large flightless bird found only in Australia. The meat of the emu is marketed as    a low-fat alternative  to beef, and its oil is a by-product of meat  production. The oil is derived    from emu fat, which is refined to remove all traces of smell and organic substances.

In 1860, a London journalist reported on how early  Australian settlers used emu oil to heal wounds, reduce  pain, and relieve various muscular disorders. Even earlier, Aboriginal Australians had already used emu oil  for similar purposes.

Today, emu oil for hair loss has regained the spotlight for its potent healing  properties, including a truly remarkable capacity to stimulate hair growth and re-growth in as little as 30 days

Hair Loss Affects Both Men and Women

By the age of thirty-five, 40% of men will have noticeable hair loss. For women, 65% will suffer obvious hair loss by age 60.

Drug treatments for combating hair loss include minoxidil (the ingredient in Rogaine) and Finasteride, a type of steroid that stimulates hair follicles.

Both treatments take 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.

Additionally, these drugs are pricey and come with some very unpleasant side effects such as weight gain … decreased s*e*x drive … and groin pain.

Ultimately, minoxidil or Finasteride are not particularly effective because neither of them address the real cause of hair loss.

Getting At the Root of Hair Loss

According 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 result.

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

Professor 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.

Hollick found that treating skin with emu oil resulted in a 20% increase in hair growth activity, compared to skin treated with corn oil.

After 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.”

Perhaps 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!

“We found 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 stated.

Researchers 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.

Dr. 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.”

Beware of “Rendered” Emu Oil

Due to 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.

Directions 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.

New Emu Oil Hair Growth Study Results

In a 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. Find out how you can use emu oil to prevent hair loss and more.

What Causes Hair Loss?

We’ve all grown up listening to stories about what causes hair loss: vitamin deficiencies, poor circulation to the scalp, too much hat wearing, etc. Surprisingly, these theories have been disproved. Hair loss, according to experts, is caused by a combination of aging, hormonal changes and family history of baldness. Hair loss can be permanent if destruction occurs to the hair follicle, or, it may just be temporary due to transitory damage to the follicles.

 In men, testosterone is converted to DHT (dihydratestosterone) within the hair follicle. Testosterone is converted to DHT by an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase, which is produced in the prostate, the scalp and various adrenal glands. Over time, DHT causes hair follicles to degrade and shortens their anagen, or active phase. Technically, the follicle is still alive and connected to a good blood supply. Some follicles will die, but most will simply shrink in size and produce weaker hairs. The shorter anagen growing cycle means more hairs are shed and remaining hairs become so thin that they cannot survive daily wear and tear, according to experts. Hairs in balding areas gradually change from long, thick, colored hairs into fine, unpigmented, fuzzy hairs.   Emu oil for hair loss

What can be done about Hair Loss?

That’s a good question! If the hair follicle has died, there is no hope for hair regrowth. However, if the hair follicle is just “sleeping”, many consumers report an “awakening” of the hair follicle with the use of Emu oil! Emu oil is an all-natural tissue nutrient; by applying it to the skin, it helps make the skin become healthy and alive again.

There are other products on the market today that are heavily promoted for Hair Loss…let’s take a look at some of them and compare:

Minoxidil – this is a class of drugs originally used to treat high blood pressure. Pharmacists call this drug “dose-dependent”, meaning treatment must be continued in order to maintain or increase hair growth benefits. It is the drug found in such products as Rogaine and HealthGuard. Pregnant or nursing women should avoid this substance in both oral and topical forms. According to reports, oral minoxidil can cause a fall in blood pressure, and increase in heart rate and weight gain (fluid retention). This product is also quite pricey.

Finasteride – a prescription drug marketed in tablet form. It costs about $55.09 for a one month supply. Side effects include decreased libido and groin aches.

Having said all that, let’s talk about something safe and affordable: Emu Oil!

Michael Hollick, MD, Ph.D., Professor of Medicine, Physiology, and Dermatology at Boston University School of Medicine conducted a study involving emu oil and hair growth. His study found that there was a 20% increase in growth activity of skin that received emu oil, compared to skin that received corn oil. Looking at the hair follicles, Dr. Hollick realized they were much more robust, the skin thickness was remarkably increased, suggesting that emu oil stimulated skin growth and hair growth. Additionally, the study showed that over 80% of hair follicles that had been “asleep” were awakened, and began growing. This is what emu oil may do for you!

DIY Cat Deterrent with Eucalyptus Oil

Here at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery we are proud to stock 100% pure essential oils, all Australian made. Our very own Eucalyptus oil is so versatile and we are constantly finding and documenting more recipes and uses. We have been producing 100% Pure Eucalyptus oil since 1991. Eucalyptus oil is antibacterial and anti-fungal, removes oil based stains and sticky things, acts as a penetrating oil, as well as having medicinal properties. Therefore is an ideal natural product for in and around the house, in the workshop and for the body. One of our most popular is our cat deterrent. Please read on for more information including the recipe.

CAT DETERRENT – Even the most ardent cat lovers don’t appreciate the smell of cat urine indoors or outdoors. Cats who use flower beds as a litter box present an even more serious problem. While it’s difficult to convince cats to do anything they don’t want to do, you can make homemade cat repellent that may convince cats to take their business elsewhere. Homemade cat spray is safe and environmentally friendly.

Here is a few ideas to keep them at bay from areas you dont want them:

Eucalyptus and Lemon may be the very essence of freshness to humans, but to animals, especially cats, it’s off-putting. Cats have 40 times the number of odor-sensitive cells in their noses as humans, according to PetPlace. Because of their superior smelling abilities, they are sensitive to citrus-based products and Eucalyptus oil. Eucalyptus oil is used as a deterrent for any number of animals, among them fleas, mosquitoes, mice and rats and — you guessed it — cats. Use both of these natural repellents to your advantage.
Into a spray bottle mix, 600 ml of water, 400ml of vinegar, the zest of one lemon and 20 drops Emu Ridge eucalyptus oil. It does a great job! This method not only helps deter your cat from destroying furniture or walls, but gives your a house a beautiful clean fresh smell as well!

 

You can also Soak a cotton bud/ball in Eucalyptus oil and put it in the pot plants that they like to keep them away and pop them any other areas that are off-limits to cats.

Even some oil on a tissue in the vents of your car another favorite spot for cats to mark will keep them away! For 100% pure Australian Eucalyptus Oil go to our online SHOP 

Another Handy Hint:

Indoors – Cats dislike water and the prospect of getting wet. Indoors, if you catch your cat approaching an area you want to keep him out of like scratching furniture, give him a quick spritz of water from a spray bottle. Repeat this process until he doesn’t return to the area again.

 

Outdoors – For outdoor areas, you can purchase an automatic sprinkler attached to a motion sensor and place it in your garden. These sprinklers spray cats who approach an off-limits area with a harmless burst of water, discouraging them from coming back.

 

 

Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil

This unique oil is the only one of it’s kind in the world. It is distilled from the leaf of the Kangaroo Island Narrow Leaf Mallee (Eucalyptus cneorifolia). Emu Ridge is the only commercial Eucalyptus Distillery remaining in South Australia.
Distillation of the oil began in the 1880’s and dozens of stills were established, making it one of the Island’s major industries.
One company, F.H.Faulding & Co purchased Emu Ridge in 1923, establishing two plantations in 1938 for the purpose of systematically harvesting it on a rotational basis. (The Narrow Leaf responds well to pruning.) Most success, however, was achieved by individuals who set up stills as a seasonal sideline.
Our oil is distilled in the traditional method at Emu Ridge. The leaf is placed into a pot containing water, beneath which a fire is lit, steam carrying the oil is passed through a system of cooling pipes, the oil separates and is piped off into containers. The raw oil undergoes another refining process to produce the final product crystal clear oil.
Native farming is far better for our environment, no sprays and chemicals, a great renewable resource and natural product.
