Once Upon a Time, There Was an Emu Farmer, Part 3

As mentioned in the prior post, the emu products became a central part of the operation, and emu oil is certainly not least among them.

Mike says regarding the emu oil, that one thing that really piqued his interest the oil was originally used by the Australian Aborigines as part of their native medicine routine. They would hang the hide from a tree in the heat of the day, and put a container underneath to catch the drippings that would come off the fat content on the hide. The oil was then used to treat their skin ailments. If they were injured, they would even wrap themselves in the hide so the oil content would treat their wounds.

Emu oil has been found to be transdermal, anti-inflammatory, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, and moisturizing. All of these properties contribute to the effectiveness of the oil in treating burns, cuts, bug bites, rashes, bruising, dryness and other skin ailments.

For that reason, emu oil is added to many cosmetic and health products, from skin moisturizer to muscle rubs. 4 D Acres offers a large line of products including pure emu oil, skin care products, analgesics, hair care, blemish care, bath care and more.

Also, Mike and Dee love to hear the reports about how the emu oil has helped people. In fact, on a recent visit with a gentleman, he told Mike that he used the emu oil for his dry elbows, but that his wife had recently been burned and used the emu oil on that burn. “She said the next morning she had no pain, and the redness was clearing up.” Another customer stated, “Oh, you said it would be good for burns, but I didn’t believe it until I got burnt, and I tried it. And oh, it’s fantastic. The next day the pain was gone and there was no scarring.”

Mike says that he would have missed all of these personal testimonies, and others, had he and Dee decided to have a livestock focus for their business instead of an emu product focused business.
