Recipes and Benefits of Emu Oil
How To Care For Your Emu Oil
Please remember to shake your Emu Oil bottle and close the lid after each use. Your Emu Oil should be stored at room temperate or below and kept away from direct heat sources. Should your Emu Oil become thick or grainy from cooler temperatures, you may place it in a container of hot tap water until it returns to its normal consistency.
When you purchase larger quantities of Emu Oil, you may place the unused containers in the refrigerator or freezer. When you are ready to use them, simply place the container in hot tap water until it has thawed. You will need to change the tap water as it cools and shake the Emu Oil occasionally until it reaches normal consistency.
With proper care your all natural Emu Oil should stay fresh for up to a year after purchase. Refrigerated Emu Oil will last twice as long and frozen Emu Oil will last indefinitely.
Emu Oil Tips
Remember a little goes a long way. The Emu Oil should be absorbed into your skin within 5 to 8 minutes. If not, you may have used too much.
For extra moisturizing and absorption, apply your Emu Oil immediately after showering, while you are still wet. Then pat dry.
Some conditions will need some time to respond to the anti-inflammatory and healing properties of Emu Oil. You may need to use your Emu Oil diligently 3 to 4 times a day for up to 2 weeks before you get results. Most folks experience almost immediate improvement but every person and every condition are unique.
POISON IVY ALERT!!!!!
Only apply Emu Oil to poison ivy after it has reached the dry stage and is longer moist or has fluid blisters present.
Your dogs and cats will love the taste of Emu oil. In fact, it is very good for them. You may add a few drop to your pets food for healthy skin and coat and for a great source of all the omega oils. Be sure and keep the Emu oil bottle out of their reach or it will disappear. If they do eat the whole bottle, it will not hurt them, but they may experience some loose stools.
You may use the Emu Oil on all your critters aliments just the same as you would on yourself.
