10 months ago while rendering Emu oil in a large pot (mixed with water
to absorb the impurities and smell) on top of the stove, I just checked the
temperature using a candy thermometer (85 C.) when it blew up all over my
left arm. Being an ambulance paramedic I knew I should be placing my arm
under cold water, however I thought I might as well test out Emu oil's burn
treatment potential. After several minutes I only felt a slight stinging
sensation and had some reddening. The next day there was no evidence that I
even received a burn.
My tenant's 1 yr old baby crawled under her jeep that she had just drove
home. She came running over to our house, baby in arms. He had a very nasty
looking 3rd degree burn across his upper back from the hot tailpipe. I
immediately applied copious amounts of Emu Oil to his burn and gave her a
large bottle of oil to apply several times that night and next several days.
I expected to see a huge blister form and lots of pain and discomfort. To my
amazement NO blisters formed and in 4 days the underlying replacement skin
started to show with NO red or raw look. 3 weeks later I could hardly tell
that he had been burnt so severely. Truly amazing. Russ Davis, Courtenay,
I burned my hands badly by grabbing a pan that had been in a 500 degree
oven. The finger tips were seared white. I immediately applied pure emu oil,
and added more oil for the first hour or so. Within 30 minutes the pain
ceased. The next day, continuing to use the oil, there was just slight
redness, no blisters or scars, and still no pain.
My husband has two plates and fifteen pins in his hip from an
automobile accident. There was sciatic nerve and bone damage. At the end of
a day of walking and being on his feet he is sore and in pain. He comes home
and applies emu oil. Within five minutes he feels better.
Our physician's fair, red headed daughter suffered a bad sunburn on a
small exposed area that did not receive sun-block. Within minutes of
applying emu oil, her pain was relieved, and there was no blistering or
peeling. Sue Kiselicka, Medford, WI 715-785-7677
Our grandson had an allergic reaction to an antibiotic, which created a
diaper rash with a fiery red area like a burn. He was very fussy, and in a
lot of pain. We put emu oil on it and within a minute the pain had eased, he
quit fussing and was happy again.
I use emu oil on my face and neck every day. My skin feels dry without
it. Sharon Simington, Thorp, WI 715-669-5122
Our acupuncture therapist is using emu oil as a carrier for many of her
special Chinese herb formulas. She is very pleased with the results from
Our golden retriever had a bad "hot spot" rash on her neck this spring
-- the flesh was red and oozing, the fur was gone, and she acted sick. After
a few applications of emu oil, she was visibly more comfortable and the rash
healed right away.
I made an emu oil, beeswax lip balm last winter that worked better than
any lip protection I've ever used. Deena Gentle, Hillsboro, WI
Two years ago I had a triple by-pass. Six months ago my feet swelled to
the point that I could not wear shoes any longer. Doctor recommended Support
hose. I tried that for two months. Now the ankles swelled underneath the
support hose, and the blood or liquid could not return upwards. The huge
swellings turned purple off and on. Doctor said, "Nothing else we can do.
Once the veins are removed (harvested, he said) that's it." He recommended a
specialist, but did not hold out much hope. What to lose, right? I asked my
herbalist daughter to prepare a circulation-stimulating Emu-oil product. She
did. My wife, who massages my feet daily with Emu-oil swears that my feet
are a far cry from what they looked like. I did not contact the specialist,
since the improvement in my circulation became glaringly self-evident. At
the moment-- no more support-hose, no more hugely swollen feet. Henry
Ruhe, Charlottesville VA
My husband has always had a lot of cold sores in the winter time. They
are on his nose, his mouth and large ugly ones. He started using emu oil on
them as soon as they started to develop and they do not amount to anything.
He swears by it.
I have always suffered from a sore back from sitting improperly when I
knit. Last week I received some "Circle of Life" (Fastrax) for Arthritis
from Eggceptional Emu and used it. I only had to use it once and the
soreness and pain disappeared. Don and Lois McIntyre, Box 104, Singhampton,

Back in 1992, my husband and I decided to start raising ratites, and we
currently own and operate a ranch that supports Emus, Rheas, and
Ostrich..... Over the last three years, here are some of the many uses we
have found for emu oil.
We use it as moisturizer in the bath, on the body and face, and Glenn
uses it as an aftershave to heal up razor nicks and soften his skin. We no
longer have to deal with callused or aching hands (the oil does alleviate
pain), and after adding it to our shampoos and conditioners, our hair is
shiny and healthy-looking! Several pre-cancerous bumps I had on my face and
hands have disappeared.
I burned my hands badly with hot butter and immediately applied Emu oil
and wrapped up the hands in a towel for about ten minutes. When I removed
the towel, there was no trace on my hands of what should have been a good
second-degree burn. No pain, the redness and swelling were gone!
We get insect bites frequently, and applying a dab of the oil to the
itch makes it disappear within a few seconds, and it works great on mosquito
bites! Glenn was outside in summer shorts a few days ago and disturbed a
huge hornets nest. He was stung at least seven times on the legs and a
couple of places on the face and hands. He came rushing in the house and
coated all the bites heavily with Emu oil. None of the bites ever swelled
up, and he was able to proceed as if nothing happened!
On a trip to Phoenix we took along a large bottle of Emu oil. The
temperatures were well over 102 degrees in late May, and we while we both
got great suntans, we never had to worry about sunburns. The oil appears to
totally protect the skin from burning!
On the above-mentioned trip, Glenn had all of his upper teeth extracted
by a Mexican oral surgeon, and immediate dentures put in. The pain (despite
medications given him by the surgeon) got to be too much to bear, so we
stopped and removed the dental plates put in less than an hour before.
Glenn's upper gums were heavily stitched in several places and totally
swollen, so I recommended he keep them out as the bleeding had abated, and
Glenn used Q-tips to coat his gums for the next three days. The pain was
gone by day two, and on day four he returned to the oral surgeon for a
checkup by the surgeon, who told him he had never seen stitches heal so
fast, and the surgeon proceeded to remove all the stitches (usually one has
to wait at least two weeks!). I found that when my dentures irritate my
gums, putting Emu oil on the irritated spot stops all pain.
I twisted my neck and could not walk without pain, so I applied the Emu
oil to the neck base, and all the affected areas, especially the kneecaps
and feet, wrapped my neck and kneecaps in plastic kitchen wrap to seal it
in, and put socks on my feet to seal in the oil. Discovered during the
process (insult added to injury) that I had a painful in-grown toenail (my
first ever). Overnight, I slept in plastic wrap and socks, and not only did
the pain stop by morning, but I could move my neck and body parts without
pain. I did not even think about the in-grown toenail for close to week, and
while reading an article on the Internet about the Emu oil's uses,
discovered in-grown toenails listed as one. At that moment I realized I did
not have any further problems with that toenail!
We have found that Emu oil will cut the pain and itching of bites,
stings, and even poison ivy and oak. We have a friend who uses Menthol-based
products on his shoulders at night, so I asked him to put the menthol on
both shoulders, and then apply the Emu oil to one shoulder and report the
results back to me. He dropped by the next day to say that the Emu oil drove
the menthol deep into the tissues and he could feel the difference between
the two applications.
Currently, we use the Emu oil on our feather-picker parrots, and they
stop plucking, and start growing in beautiful, shiny feathers. Same for dogs
and catsflea bites and itching are stopped by applying to the affected
Glenn's brother, Ernie, had a triple by-pass heart operation a couple
of years ago, and as he is an Emu breeder, and knew we used it, he started
applying it because the metal plates put in his chest to hold the stitches
ached when the cold air hit. On a routine visit to his surgeon he was asked
why his scars were disappearing 50% faster than the rest of him patients.!
Several weeks ago, Glenn was aiming at a predator and the recoil of the
rifle bashed the scope into his face, right between the eyes. He was a
bloody mess, but he wiped off the blood, washed his face, and coated the
gash in Emu oil. The bleeding immediately stopped, and the wound NEVER
developed any "crust" to it.
Glenn's brother, Ernie, has two teenagers who had acne until he made
them start using Emu oil on their faces.
A neighbor who works at a restaurant and has bleached, callused,
irritated hands, called to say that another neighbor that we had given some
Emu oil to had given her some, and she decided to try it on her hands, and
that within one week her hands were soft, painless, and getting better every
A visitor to our ranch showed us his psoriasis spots. We applied Emu
oil to most of them and watched them turn from gray crusts to smooth pink
flat spots right before our eyes! He left with a large amount of our oil,
and his psoriasis is getting better ever day!
A lady called who had somehow gotten hold of our oil and decided to
treat her shingles with it, as her dermatologist had given her no relief.
Her shingles were gone! She called her mother in California, who also has
shingles, and her shingles are gone!
I am using the oil on stretch marks on my abdomen from pregnancy, and
am seeing a gradual reduction in the scars (have been using one month to
Both Glenn and I, and quite a few people who know us and use Emu oil
have found tremendous relief for tendonitis, carpal-tunnel disease (I have
it) and arthritis. Some of us use Emu oil as the only treatment, and some of
us use the Emu oil as a safe "driver" (unlike DMSO) to drive cortisone,
aspirin creme lotions, menthol compounds deep into the skin tissues.
Emu oil can be applied (even scented) to dry nostrils, and if you have
an earache, put several drops into the ear, tilt your head, and feel the
Emu oil is a fantastic sexual lubricant, and will relieve males of
summer heat "jock itch" and rash. Now everyone will scream, "NO, NO, SHE
DIDN'T SAY THAT," and then they will secretly go try it out for themselves.

Eleven years ago I had 2 disks removed from my lower back. I was only
35 years old with a two year old child! For the first four years I could do
very little stand, sit, dishes, etc. just normal routine stuff much less
play with my son. I am always plagued with pain. I hate taking pills for
chronic pain due to their side effects. We became emu ranchers in 1993 and
one of our friends suggested I rub some emu oil on my back. Finally, one day
about 2 years ago I was waxing my hard wood floors and way over did it. I
was in such pain I couldn't even stand up straight! I couldn't even
sit-stand -or lay down, I was having such bad spasm. My husband said it was
time to try emu oil. "What do you have to lose?" He massaged it on for about
two minutes and I couldn't believe it! I straightened up, the spasms were
gone, the pain was gone and I finished my floors! Of course the emu oil
can't repair my back as it is now degenerating but at least I can do more
things, be more active knowing when my back hurts more than I can tolerate,
I have a release from pain. My husband was happy too, he
My husband, J.V. had three cuts on his arm from moving birds. He put
emu oil on two cuts. He now only has one scar! There's no doubt in my mind
the worth of this bird and the oil it produces. It has given me back a
quality of life I thought I'd never regain. Peggy and J.V. Finley

I started playing senior softball on a traveling team two seasons ago.
We play from March through November, approximately 100 games per
season....During the season most players suffer from some injury, sore arm,
ham string pull or bruises. Most are minor and can be relived by sports
lotion. I started using Euphoria products. Several team members inquired
about the products and started trying them. Now there are several members
using these products regularly. I have found that almost any injury heals
much faster with the added bonus of pain relief. If applied immediately
after an injury the pain and total injury subsides, allowing the player to
continue playing during the tournament.
I pitch and was hit by a ball on the right hand, swelling the ring
finger. I was able to pitch the next day although my finger remains slightly
swollen. This happened over a month ago. As I use the arthritis cream on the
finger the pain has stopped and I can continue to play ball. We always make
sure that the arthritis and eucalyptus/emu oil go to the tournament with us.
Its is like the eleventh player. Gene Coufal, Manteca, CA
Does anyone out there suffer from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? I do. And I
have found that rubbing emu oil into both wrist, works MUCH, MUCH better to
relieve the aching (so that I can sleep at night) than wearing splints
and/or taking Relafan constantly. In fact; with all the keyboard "users" in
this country, and all the workmen's comp claims being filed because of this
growing problem for employers, (Carpal Tunnel) we need to provide
information on the benefits of emu oil, to all the major businesses in
America and their insurance companies - who are paying the medical bills for
the employees who develop this ailment.
Many times, treatment includes surgery. And sometimes the surgery helps,
and sometimes it doesn't. And the patients can be left disabled to some
degree, even after the surgery. Personally, I have not had the surgery, and
I can't imagine now ever needing the surgery. Anyway, according to Nurse
Shirley at Bank IV in Wichita, Kansas; Carpal Tunnel is the BIGGEST
EVER-GROWING "ON-THE-JOB HAZARD" for most employers. This might be just the
"niche" we need to get our pain relieving oil into production in a big way.
When I called Nurse Shirley to tell her how much relief I was getting from
using emu oil, she was very excited and wanted to know where her other
patients could get some of this oil. She also said that she'd not heard of
it (emu oil) before I called her. That's sad, isn't it? Jane Helt
I have suffered for years with muscle spasms in the back, usually one
of these bouts last 5 or 6 days, the only relief was from a prescription
muscle relaxer, I don't know if they actually helped or just made me sleep
through the misery. About three months ago while building fence, I pulled a
muscle in my back, this is generally the beginning of several days of
suffering. I had my back rubbed with Woodhavens Sports Rub followed in an
hour or so with pure Emu Oil, that night I went through the same routine.
The next morning my back was stiff but after a couple of hours I was able to
get back to fence building, maybe at a little slower pace for the day, but
by the next day was at full capacity. Don Arbogast, Dailey, WV 26259
