Emu oil is taken from the fat of the emu bird, which is native to Australia. Emu oil is an effective oil for pain relief and has been used for centuries by native Aborigines. One of the beneficial properties of emu oil is that it contains high levels of linolenic acid. Linolenic acid is known to temporarily ease joint pain and can help people who have rheumatoid arthritis. Massaging Emu Oil into your sore hands can help relieve hand pain. One study has shown that a topical application of Emu Oil is just as effective as taking the NSAID, ibuprofen. You can also use Emu Oil as a carrier oil and add to it some essential oils that also have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Some good essential oils for pain relief are lavender oil, peppermint oil, rosemary oil, and marjoram oil. Or, you can use a topical pain relief lotion that contains this amazing ingredient, as well as many other Ingredients from Nature to provide Extraordinary Results for your pain.
