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 moisturizers. It’s well known in the pharmaceutical industries, the Institute of Sport in Canberra, and is currently being used worldwide by sporting bodies.

Emu Oil is rich in Vitamins A, D,E, F & K2 and Omega 3, 6, 7 & 9 oils. It is very moisturizing 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.

MOISTURISER: Emu Oil can be used on all parts of your body ie hands, arms, face, legs, hair etc. Great for sunburn or wind burn. (Apply after heat has gone.)
MASSAGE: It is a great carrier oil for mixing with other oils.
ARTHRITIS, INFLAMMATION, ACHING MUSCLES: 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. (Mix half Emu Oil and half Eucalyptus oil for an excellent liniment.) People have also had allot of success taking it orally as well 1 or 2 teaspoon a day. this may also help gut issues, see the above links.

ECZEMA, DERMATITIS AND PSORIASIS: It will significantly reduce irritation and inflammation of the skin.
BITES: Relieves and soothes irritated skin and insect bites. (Also works well adding some Eucalyptus Oil to the Emu Oil.)
BURNS AND CUTS: It promotes faster healing to these areas with reduced pain and scarring. ( Hospitals are using it these days for burn victims)

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 any bacterial organisms.

Southern Emu director Wayne Piltz, Moorok, who farms emus with son Darryn, has been in the emu industry for more than two decades and said it has been through some tumultuous times.

“I was involved in the initial build-up in the early to mid 1990s,” he said. “At that stage there were more than 100 farms. I found out last year that I’m the only licensed emu farm left in SA.”

They have 600 birds on the property, with about 28 hectares fenced into emu pens.

“This year we might hatch 600 chicks if we know we have the markets for them,” he said.

He has selected breeders, which can each produce up to eight eggs at a time.

Emus build up fat supplies in spring and summer ahead of their breeding season from March to June.

Emu farming helps to protect our environment. The Emu is native to Australia and can live in harmony with our land, thus 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 48 kms per hour.

Since 1991 we have believed that farming our natural resources in a sustainable way is our greatest asset. Eucalyptus is but one of the things that grows naturally on our property. The government is making it very hard for us to farm this way on Kangaroo Island! Our Wallabies and Kangaroo’s are culled (shot ) and left to rot in the ground. They revoked our Emu Farming licence and we are now only permitted to sell emu eggs for both edible and hollow eggs sales, not for meat and leather. We will continue to fight these regulations. Farming our natural resources is far better for the environment. We used to be sheep farmers way back in another life!
