Emu Oil Extraction

Emu oil is considered somewhat of a miracle product by many, being useful for treating a huge number of ailments, skin problems, muscle and joint pains and even to stop hair loss and begin regrowing hair. Still, you may be wondering where this miracle cure comes from and how emu oil extraction works.

In case you’re not aware, the emu is a large flightless bird that is native to Australia, which is why the aboriginals there have been using the oil for centuries to treat a number of different medical conditions. As it comes from the bird, emu is of course all natural, but not suitable for use by vegans since it is an animal product.

Emu oil extraction takes place after the bird has been killed in order to obtain both its meat and its oil. In fact, emu meat is becoming quite popular as a much healthier alternative to beef. When the meat is taken off the bird, the butcher first removes all of the fat from the meat, and this is where the oil will eventually come from.

Emu oil extraction involves taking all of that fat, which happens to be incredible greasy (good for producing large amounts of oil), and first rinsing it and removing any remaining water. Then the fat is slowly rendered down over heat for a time until the fat all melts and turns into liquid. From there, the emu oil extraction process involves an additional rinsing and cleansing to try to remove any remaining meat, feathers or undesirable materials from it.

After that point, the emu oil must then be heated again in order to fully sterilize it, before then being filtered and cleaned which removes all of the animal smell from it. It is often then allowed to dry somewhat so that it turns into a nice creamy oil, free from any possible impurities so that it can finally be sold and applied for a huge number of different uses.

Emu oil is an excellent moisturizer, helping protect the skin from drying out like a lotion and can also help reduce wrinkles and the signs of aging. In most cases, people simply apply the oil directly to their skin, however recently there has also been a huge rise in companies selling emu oil capsules which are meant to be ingested orally.

As emu oil extraction is a delicate process, it’s important to make sure you buy the product from a licensed manufacturer to ensure it is as pure and sterile as possible.
