 New You Anti-Aging Tip: Use emu oil as a natural treatment for pain relief of muscles and joint aches.



Thousands of years ago, the aborignal Australians knew what they were doing when they started slathering emu oil on their skin. Today, modern research verifies that emu oil is a safe and effective treatment for skin care, hair loss and arthritis (to name a few) due to anti-aging omega fatty acids: linolenic acid and oleic acid. Some massage therapists even incorporate emu oil into their treatment, which is esepcially effective for people with dry, sensitive skin. Emu oil is also hypo-allergenic, non-irritating, odorless and leaves skin feeling smooth, not greasy—great news for those of us who want alternatives to flowery scented oils. The result is an anti-inflammatory effect that offers relief from muscle aches, joint pain, sciatica, shin splints, athlete’s foot and insect bites. (Yes, the list goes on).
