Emu Oil for Muscle Pain

According to WiseGeek.com (clear answers for common questions), muscle inflammation “is a condition characterized by swelling, stiffness, non-specific pain, and muscle soreness or weakness.” This may be caused by a variety of factors, including auto-immune diseases. “In the absence of an autoimmune disease, most cases of simple muscle inflammation can be attributed to overexertion while exercising or participating in recreational sports.”


Regardless of the cause, the stiffness and pain resulting from the inflammation is often debilitating, if not limiting to the daily activities of living. While various remedies are offered, including ice and heat, a topical application of a muscle rub is often helpful. In fact, many rubs offer the hot and cold sensations to provide a numbing cool sensation, as well as increased blood circulation from the heat.

Emu oil is now added to many topical muscle creams due to its anti-inflammatory properties, as well as its transdermal properties. It has the ability to penetrate the skin and go deep into the muscles, while serving as a healing agent, AND as a carrier for other healing components of the muscle rub.

Emu oil alone is incredibly effective as well. In fact in an experiment by researchers at UMass Lowell, “fish oil reduced the thickness caused by inflammation in mice by 55 percent; emu oil by 70 percent.” While they are cautious to note that experiments in mice might have different results than in humans, but they are encouraged by the results.


The Unique Properties of Emu Oil ~ Part 2

In an earlier post we explored some of the properties of emu oil by posting links to scientific evidence regarding those qualities. We will continue to do the same for three more properties of emu oil, including the qualities of non-comedogenic, immunity boosting, and high absorption.
While emu oil is just beginning to make its mark in the world of clinical trials, there are some studies that seem to indicate that the qualities of pure emu oil are well founded. We will share a few of those studies with you regarding some key properties of emu oil. Click on the red text to open hyperlinked article.

· Non-Comedogenic ~ Does not clog pores
Moisturizing and cosmetic properties of emu oil: A pilot double blind study
In 1994, Dr. Alexander Zemstov conducted a "double blind" study on the properties of Emu Oil and he concluded the following properties of Emu oil: highly penetrating, emulsifier, bacteriostatic, low irritation potential, and non-comedogenic.”

· Stimulates skin immune system
Omega 3 and Your Immune System Because of the Omega 3 content in emu oil, it is said to boost the immune system in the skin. Here is an article that talks specifically about Omega 3 fatty acids with regard to immunity.

· Promotes faster healing due to rapid absorption
Emu Oil Research
The second to the last article on the above page, Emu Cream Assists Lidocaine: Local Anesthetic Absorption through Human Skin, suggests that the absorption from emu oil actually allows it to serve as a carrier for other medications into the skin to areas where healing needs to occur.  

Further information regarding these properties can be found in this article that focuses on hair loss but actually elaborates on other benefits and qualities of emu oil, citing specific scientific research.

Like Pure Water

Like pure water, 100% Pure Fully Refined Clear Emu Oil is clear. And the benefits are clear as well. Because of the further refining of this product, it penetrates your skin quicker and begins to work on the healing faster.

Regular emu oil is a creamy white and while it is still a grade A oil, and is great to use for all topical applications, the 100% Pure Fully Refined Clear Emu Oil has had all cloudiness (solids which melt at skin temperature) removed to give you a product that is so effective in its fast penetration that you can apply it right before your makeup without the need to wait, as it to absorbs quickly before you begin to apply your foundation. It will add instant moisture and even plump up fine lines around the eyes, and is great to use all over the face and neck to give your skin a smoother and healthier appearance. (Men can also use emu oil on their face to help with razor burn and those fine lines that they also get as they age.)

Just one or two drops are sufficient to cover and moisturize your entire face. You can even use it on your cuticles, split fingers, bruises, and aching muscles. It is perfect to use anywhere you want quick penetration and fast relief.

Once Upon a Time, There Was an Emu Farmer, Part 4

  Two very special emus reside on the farm at 4 D Acres. Barney is their pet and Blue is their farm mascot. You might wonder what the difference is. Blue travels with Mike for the purposes of ag education. He doesn’t get stressed on the trailer but Barney does. On the other hand, Barney is much more at ease than Blue with crowds at the farm, and so is a staple attraction at the farm tours.

Their guard llama is named Sambo. When compared to guard dogs, the llama can not be drawn out by a pack of coyotes, unlike the dogs which might be lured away. The llama does not leave what it is protecting. After a year old, the emus are generally big enough and strong enough to fend for themselves so Sambo is on vacation until the next batch of birds are put out on pasture.

In addition to the emus and llamas, 4 D Acres raise chickens, and they have had goats, pigs, cattle, sheep and dogs in the past. They have pet cats as well to keep the mice population low.

Current projects on the farm include preparing for the next brooding season. The upcoming winter season will bring craft shows and farm shows followed by lawn and garden shows in the spring. As the daylight grows shorter, days on the farm at 4 D Acres do not, evening chores just get done earlier.

Mike and Dee welcome any questions via email at info@4dacres.com and visits to the farm via scheduled appointments only.
