First Magazine Recommends Emu Essence Naturals™ Pure Emu Oil
Skin Superhero - Emu Oil!
We've finally found a healer that rescues skin from all the harsh effects of winter: emu oil! Not only does it hydrate and soothe redness, but the oil also has a laundry list of other benefits . It plumps fine lines, nourishes cuticles, encourages growth of the eyebrows and eyelashes and stimulates the scalp for thicker, healthier hair!
What makes it different than other moisturizers? The oil (derived from the fat of the birds that resemble small ostriches) has similar amounts of skin-fortifying omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids as our skin. This allows it to penetrate into the lowest layers of the dermis, where new skin cells are generated.
In addition, Barry Sears, M.D., who specializes in hormonal research, believes that part of the emu oil's power lies in its high level of eicosanoids, hormone-like compounds that trigger the body to increase blood flow to the area where the oil is applied. Eicosanoids also soften the outer "shells" of individual cells, allowing more oxygen in and more toxins out for healthier skin overall. The proof: Studies reveal that when applied twice a day for 14 days, emu oil thickend skin by an average of 14 percent and increased moisture retention for a beautiful glow!

Dry Scalp? Try Emu Oil
Rich in anti-inflammatory omega fatty acids and oleic acid, emu oil (from the fat of the emu bird) calms scalp irritation so the follicles can produce thicker, healthier hair. In addition, one study found that the oil stimulated growth in 80 percent of dormant hair follicles. For best results, massage emu oil (like Emu Essence Naturals Pure Emu Oil at UniquelyEmu.com) into the scalp; let sit 20 minutes, then rinse. Repeat every other day.

HELP! MY EPISIOTOMY SCAR STILL HURTS!
My daughter just turned two, but the scar from the episiotomy I had during her birth still bothers me. It's tough to even wear shorts since they have a tendency to ride up and irritate the area. How can I ease the discomfort?
There is an amazing remedy from Australia that's four times better than vitamin E at softening scar tissue and reducing the tender bumpiness and super-dry patches that can linger on an episiotomy scar for years. It's called emu oil, and it is high in skin-nourishing fats (like the fatty acids linolenic acid and oleic acid) that have anti-inflammatory and deeply penetrative moisturizing properties. Simply massage the affected area with the oil two or three times daily. The lubricating action should instantly lessen irritation from clothing or sitting, and you'll see a significant reduction in discomfort and scarring in four to six weeks.
It's also worth noting that, in addition to it's skin-healing power, emu oil has anti-microbial properties, making it effective at preventing episiotomy scarring and infections if applied in the weeks following delivery.

EMU OIL FORTIFIES AND SOOTHES SKIN
Natural, odorless emu oil contains a rare combo of linolenic acid, linoleic acid and oleic acid, a skin-softening trio that's easily absorbed. And unlike emollients such as baby oil, emu oil penetrates deeply because it lacks phospholipids, compounds that cling to skin's outermost layer. Plus, studies show that oleic acid reduces body levels of TNF-alpha, a skin-damaging biochemical seen in higher levels among Sjogren's patients.One product to apply as needed: Emu Essence Naturals Pure Emu Oil at UniquelyEmu.com or call 888-383-9513. Bonus: Emu oil's linolenic acid is a natural painkiller shown to ease muscle aches within minutes of application.
