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.

Skin conditions are sometimes difficult to deal with, not only from a cosmetic standpoint, but from a treatment and prevention standpoint. Clothing and makeup can sometimes help cover up a skin condition, but it is not always feasible, especially in warmer weather, and it does not address the problem at all.
Many skin conditions are similar in symptoms, but different in treatment and levels of cure and/or prevention. Because the differences between Psoriasis, Eczema, Dermatitis and other rashes are often confusing and misunderstood, it is best to consult your doctor as to the specifics of your condition.
When considering treatment options, you can remember that inflammation is a common root of the dry and itchy symptoms and adjust your daily skin care regimen adequately.
4 D Acres Psori-Care II is a cream containing emu oil that acts like a therapeutic balm by moisturizing the skin and reducing the itching, redness, and scaling associated with many stubborn skin conditions.
Here is what one of our clients has said about it.
Thank you so much! My daughter's psoriasis is improved, using Psori-Care, to the point ALL of the scaling is gone... only smooth red spots now. We've learned to slap emu oil on a burn right away to instantly relieve the pain and prevent scarring. Even my 5th grader told a school friend with a burn, "Oh! You need emu oil for that and it won't hurt or leave a scar." Simply amazing, really!!
I'm 20 years old and have had psoriasis for about 7 years. I never found any lotions that would make my spots stop itching until my dad found this product about 3 years ago. It makes my days go by a lot better because I don't have to worry about being uncomfortable and itching all of the time. It has even helped clear some of the spots where I use it twice a day. I don't use any other lotions for my psoriasis now.

We hope that you will consider giving it a try.

Your hair is ultimately an extension of your wardrobe as part of your overall image, but like a silk tie or a linen blouse, it must be cared for properly. Because it is fragile, it is important to carefully select the right products for your hair care regimen.
While your hair can be weakened through a less than ideal diet, or from an illness, it can also reflect weakness from heavy styling or lack of proper care.
Hair is ultimately made up of 90% keratin protein and 10% water. The proper care can help to maintain the delicate moisture balance in healthy hair.
Emu oil acts as a fortifying agent for limp dry hair; it helps to eliminate split ends and restores a natural healthy shine to the hair. Our Purple Emu Hair Shampoo gently cleanses your hair and scalp and leaves a pleasant fragrance. Our Purple Emu Hair Conditioner is a moisture-rich formula that softens hair leaving it tangle-free, silky and shiny.
For hair that is full of body and luxurious, use Purple Emu Shampoo & Hair Conditioner from 4 D Acres.
4 D Acres offers this shampoo and conditioner separately or as a discounted set. You will enjoy that it is gentle but effective as shown with this supportive testimonial.
"I like it a lot. It leaves my hair soft and no knots. It smells like a nice flower."

It seems as if dietary guidelines change every time we turn around. From low fat to no fat, from low carb to liquid diets, the list goes on. One thing that has been found to be true again and again in real scientific studies is that our bodies need fat – the right kind of fat in the right proportions.
Although some would argue that all you need to have the right nutrition is to eat a well-balanced diet, that is indeed easier said than done. Our busy lifestyles, on the run eating habits, and unavailability of certain food types because of seasons or geographic locations all contribute to a lack of nutritional balance.
When it comes to healthy fats, or essential fatty acids, we have been told that the best ones for our bodies are unsaturated fats, especially Omega fatty acids. They aid the body in maintaining a healthy metabolism and also in the reduction of cholesterol, by balancing the saturated fat content in the body. Not often found in the typical American diet, these fats are normally found in marine and plant oils, but also in emu oil. For this reason, it is wise to supplement your diet with sources of Omega fatty acids not found in your typical diet, and a gel cap is one of the best ways to implement essential fatty acids to your diet.
This all-natural dietary supplement is an excellent source of Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 essential fatty acids that are required for maintaining optimum health. 4 D Acres offers a convenient daily supplement called Emu-Gel Caps to provide you with these essential fatty acids. Don’t believe us, though. Take it from our customer!
I have been using emu oil capsules since the Wichita farm show. You were convincing when you talked about the change in your cholesterol readings. I think I told you at Wichita in November that I have suffered foot pain for several years because of bone spurs on my heels. I just realized that I don't have this pain anymore. I have not changed any of my meds.

If you were to have a dog and pony show – a travelling circus in the late 19th
, early 20th
centuries – you’d want your dogs and ponies to be in tip top shape! 4 D Acres
It’s no dog trick that you can keep your pet’s coat shiny and healthy by adding emu oil to their diet with just a few drops in their food. The rich emollients in the emu oil also help restore the beauty to their hair when added to your favorite pet shampoo. If your pet has had a real dog day and injured itself, the transdermal properties of the emu oil speed healing and aids in reduced scarring. See what this dog lover has to say about Rusty's Refined Emu Oil
Our dog ZAPATO is a large black and silver German Shepherd and Lab mix. We were told she was allergic to the saliva in flea bites, so every time she was bitten it caused a large red bump. Her vet put her on medication for 2 months and finally the bumps were gone. But then we had another problem, the medication had left her skin dry as toast, and she had huge white flakes in her fur. It looked like a very bad case of dandruff. What her vet sold me didn't work, and the biting and scratching got worst. Then I remembered buying Rusty's Refined Emu Oil and started using it on her problem areas. It calmed her skin down immediately and gave her much needed relief.
Now after 3 weeks here dry skin condition is gone and so are the white flakes. ZAPATO's coat feel like silk and is in beautiful condition. I used a small amount of oil and rubbed it in with my fingers by giving her a puppy massage. Thank you Rusty and Mike

We’re not horsing around with your ponies either. Does your equine have cracked hooves or open wounds from fences or equipment? Equine Aid
is a deep penetrating, non-irritating, highly moisturizing, all natural nutritional supplement to the skin. Keep one in your first aid kit. Don’t take it from us. Check out this reviews by some of our faithful customers.
At the Farm and Ranch Show this week I learned for the first time of emu oil, and the benefits it can have for cuts on horses. I decided to buy some to have on hand, just in case. Unbelievably enough this very Friday our 8 month old filly didn't like that we moved her mother to another location. One of the benefits for doing this was to try to wean the filly. But she panicked tonight and jumped the neighbor's fence that is chain link with a hot wire and barbed wire on top. She received about 6 different very large gashes across her chest and above her leg. I called our vet but could not get a hold of anyone. I thought of the emu oil that I had just purchased. I applied it with a Q-tip, but I wanted to confirm are we supposed to do anything else besides apply it twice a day? How much of it are we supposed to try and get into or onto the cuts? The timing of all this I whole heart believe it's nothing short of a miracle. The Lord's guidance was definitely involved in the decision to purchase the Equine Aide. Thank You,
- I. B. Wichita, Kansas
Just when you thought the show was over:
I want to thank you for letting me know that the Emu Oil would be safe in treating my cat (Angel's) wound. She was hurt and I found out late in the evening. I noticed she had a lump on her side, when I went to investigate the wound erupted. I cleaned her up and she was not happy. After calling you I put Emu Oil on the wound and the next morning it was healed. What a miracle. I was already convinced you have a great product, but after this it was confirmed beyond belief. I saved a lot of money and worry by using the (Emu) oil and it was easier on Angel. She is not fond of the ride to the vet. Thank you! so so much!

Just hearing those first four words brings the popular children’s
jingle to my mind and makes me want to move, touching my hands to my
head, then onto my shoulders, bending to the knees and all the way to my
Sometimes that is easier said than done. If those same muscles and
joints that allow us to move are suffering from pain and inflammation,
we might only be able to sing along. Naturally, we want to have relief
from our aches and pains, but the challenge is determining what remedy
will work for us, while preferably being natural and having a minimum or
absolutely no unfavorable side effects.
Consider 4 D Acres Muscle-Joint Plus. This powerful cream is highly effective, odorless, and deep penetrating, but without the potentially bothersome heat effect in so many topical muscle creams.
Muscle-Joint Plus is different from other types of remedies on the market because it starts with 20% Ultra™ Emu Oil. Emu oil has transdermal
properties, which means that it penetrates quickly into the deepest
layers of your skin, serving as a transport method for other topical
remedies. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, and when combined
with the naturally therapeutic benefits of Glucosamine Sulfate,
Pregnenelone, MSM (Menthyl Sulfonyl Methane) and Natural Vitamin E, it
makes Muscle-Joint Plus a powerhouse aid for your muscle and joint pain.
When using the highly concentrated and fast penetrating Muscle-Joint Plus, only a small amount is needed and relief can be felt in as little as 10 minutes.
You’ll soon be touching your toes and dancing a jig, or at the very
least going about your daily activities with less pain, reduced
inflammation and more freedom of movement.
Do you prefer a topical pain cream with or without heat effects?

While winter weather offers a respite from the heat of the summer
months, and allows for colorful, if not all white, seasonal landscapes,
it also brings with it a host of concerns including dry skin. Heated
homes and biting wind can dry our skin, while our multiple winter layers
keep us from applying moisturizer as often as we should.
Perhaps you have used lotions with minimal results because of
irritating additives and fragrances, and you are looking for an all
natural option that will deliver the moisture your skin craves. You may
have even tried a prescription steroid cream for your dry skin
condition, but found it to be expensive and full of side effects.
Emu oil and moisturizers
containing emu oil can be lifesavers for your dry, itchy skin. Because
of the Emu oil’s amazing transdermal properties, it quickly penetrates
to the third layer of the derma, rushing its relieving components to the
dehydrated skin cells. Emu oil has a complex structure that mimics your
skin’s own oils and rebalances the lipid fatty acid composition in your
skin to ensure a softer, well hydrated skin. Emu oil is all-natural and
safe for everyone in your family, from the youngest to the oldest.
There are no chemicals, fillers, or pore clogging ingredients to
further irritate your skin’s already delicate state.
Here are 2 more tips:
- Consider an Emu Oil dietary supplement
in addition to your topical moisturizer. Dry, cracked skin can be a
sign that your diet is lacking in essential fats. Just 30 days of
ingesting 3 emu oil gel-caps daily provides ample time for you to see a
difference in your skin’s texture and moisture levels due to the Omega 3
and Omega 6 fatty acids naturally found in emu oil.
- Drink plenty of water to hydrate!
