About Emu Oil

Unsaturated fatty acids make up around 70% of Emu oil. With the biggest percentage being a mono-unsaturated omega 9 fatty acid, oleic acid. The remaining percentage is made up somewhat of linolenic acid, which is an omega 3 fatty acid (around 2%) and linoleic acid, an omega 6 fatty acid (around 20%). Medical studies undertaken using rodents indicate that Emu oil could possibly help heal wounds while having anti-inflammatory effects.

Being a natural transdermal carrier, Emu oil is very effective and penetrating deep into your skin. This was one of the main reasons Emu oil was so highly regarded by the Aborigines, the absorption rate of it is astounding. Our skin contains numerous fatty acids, Emu oil is made up of nothing but these fatty acids. For healthy and protected skin we need a good supply of omega 3, 6 and 8 fatty acids. Thanks to the high absorption rate of Emu oil, the anti-inflammatory action is able to get right at the core of pain. Thanks to other ingredients that are added to it, Emu oil becomes a very effective answer to joint and muscle pain. You may wish to use Emu oil for numerous reasons. A common use of Emu oil is in helping alleviate the pain of joint conditions, such as arthritis for example. It is also great at treating acne and other skin issues, psoriases responds very well to Emu oil. You can even incorporate it into a healing regime for scars and burns.

  1. Painful Feet on April 13, 2017 at 10:08 PM

    I have planter fasciitis in my feet and can’t stand the pain in the mornings when I get out of bed. Not to mention one foot in particular would wake me in the night aching.

    I was complaining about it while getting a pedicure one day and this nice lady beside me said she worked at the post office and was on her feet all day. She asked if I’d ever used Blue Emu. I told her I’d never heard of it.

    As soon as I was done with my pedicure, I immediately went to Walmart and purchased a jar of the Blue Emu Super strength. I rub it on my feet right before bed at night and it’s amazing. I don’t know what it does but I’m so grateful for the lady who told me about it.

    My sister brought me some blue emu. I have rheumatoid arthritis and have been hurting so bad for the last 4 days. My legs just ached, especially my bad knee. Within a few minutes I felt relief. I am now putting it all over. My little fingers have been so stiff every morning I could barely close my hands. I am feeling very flexible now. So excited about not being in constant pain.

    I have been using Original BLUE-EMU super strength for 2 weeks just like the instructions says. I used it twice daily. I put on lots like the label says. I have pain in my hand. I have had no results from this product. It is very expensive and not worth the price that I paid for it.

    This is best thing for hemorrhoid. Just one application fixed over twenty year constant problem. It is miracle drug. Now taking emu oil in capsule, hemorrhoid is not coming back.

    I have a stiff and sore neck. I’ve tried many products and got no relief. I saw Blue Emu on the shelf and decided to try it. Doesn’t work for me. Guess I’ll keep on looking.
    Actually I don’t feel any heat from any of the products I tried.

    • Curtis on March 10, 2017 at 7:23 PM

      It doesn’t work for me either.

  6. Richard Haas on January 28, 2017 at 11:29 PM

    I have severe pain in both knees and shoulder, Tried every product made and i must tell you that Blue Emu WORKS. I sleep better, and am able to move around better during the day. It has allowed me to practically do away with prescription pain medicines. I highly recommend this product.

    Came home to get relief and almost broke my wrist opening the jar. After spending 30 min trying to open the jar, found a wrench’s to remove top.

    It’s great!! if one can get it open.

    Disturbed old man haha.

    still like it

    I am 84 and have some lower back pain which started in my butt and radiated down my leg to my knee. Sometimes it moves farther down to my ankle. A friend recommended that I try Blue Emu cream and I have been using it twice a day for several weeks. The instructions are to use it generously which I have done. I do get some relief but it hurts when I start to walk. No problem sleeping except when I change positions. I intend to keep using it, although it is quite expensive for a small jar which lasts about a week. No smell or greasiness is a big factor.

    I have Osteoarthritis in my hands and feet . I have used several doctor ordered compounding creams….This Maximun strength Blue-Emu is probable the best product I’ve ever used!!! I use it once or twice per day and I find I have relief from the nagging pains!! Hats off to this product, as for the price…..nothing compared to the $200.00 compounding messy creams.I have recommended this product to several friends and all have concluded….IT WORKS!!

    My husband and I use the blue emu for pain with good results. now I will start using it on the dry skin. I still need to find out what the coloring is made of.

  11. Gloria on December 10, 2016 at 3:55 PM

    I have Arthritis in my right hand, and I have seen your advertisement on TV that shows how using this cream will help to stop the pain. Well I have used this cream for a few months, and it does nothing to help. Your Ad indicates that using this cream will help the pain, but it doesn’t.

    I might as well be using vicks salve or something like that as your cream is just as effective. I wasted my money on this product.

  12. Raymond on November 1, 2016 at 11:34 AM

    I purchased the blue Emu and applied it several times ans it has has no effect whatsoever on my arthritic knee. I am going to attempt to return for a refund.

    Blue Emu… Making fun of Arthritis

    I just watched the latest commercial making fun of the office worker with arthritis and the odor caused by his ointment… Not Funny. I have R.A and I was offended by the impolite antics.

    I have tried many ointments and Blue Emu much like Austrian Dream is no help for the real pain caused by arthritis. I think I speak for other arthritis sufferers when I say the commercial is offensive. Arthritis is a painful and destructive biological alteration of a human’s cell structure and there is no topical medication that can stop or relieve the damage caused by arthritis.

    If a person is experiencing joint pain they should seek a medical diagnosis for proper care.

    I have pain in my right shoulder and after seeing the ads on TV thought this might alleviate my problem after trying several different things. I purchased a 4oz. jar at Walmart and have used it religiously for two weeks with very little, if any, relief.

    I see from reading some of the reviews it helped a lot of people, but I am very
    dissatisfied and also disappointed.

    • Gaylord Yegge on February 12, 2017 at 12:43 PM

      worthless! I have lower back muscle pain. Chiropractor did xrays and says everything is OK Wife loves it and suggested I try it, so I had her rub a good quantity on my lower back. NO DIFFERENCE! NOT RECOMMENDED! May work for some, but not for me!

        My husband used it for only 3 days and his skin broke out in huge half dollar size blisters where he applied it. The found out my granddaughter in law had the same issue after just one application.

  15. Dianne on August 5, 2015 at 10:31 PM

    I have had two knee replace . And I have a pinch nerve in my neck ,and I have arthritis. I am on my 15th jar of blue-emu now. I told my doctor about it, and he told me to keep using it . It has helped me so much. I use it every day.

    I tried Blue-Emu after learning about it from my Physical Therapist. I have minor arthritis and had knee surgery back in November 2005. There has been a lot of pain. I have taken a lot of different aspirin, etc. When she rubbed it on that first time, I thought another ointment that would just smell awful. Much to my surprise, Blue-Emu worked like a charm without the grease or smell. I use it two times a day now when it is sunny, three times when it is cloudy. I enjoy pain free days thanks to Blue-Emu

  17. Jen on November 30, 2011 at 12:00 AM

    The texture is super soft due to the aloe and other emollients which leaves the skin where applied equally soft. The name Blue-Emu reflects the odd light pale bluish-whitish color the cream is but other than initial surprise to see it is blue, the color has no other impact on it’s effectiveness. There is no staining of clothes or skin.

    I am amazed that my hands/left knee are not only pain free, but no longer swollen and puffy. There is absolutely NO smell to this product and it feels cool on your skin unlike the other products like Ben-Gay or other topical pain relief creams/gels there is no burning sensation, and it absorbs more quickly than most lotions. Highly recommend giving it a try it will surprise you completely at it’s effectiveness.

    Although the price is higher than I’d like for a 4 oz. jar, this stuff is amazing. I have fibromyalgia & a right knee meniscus tear from an injury two years ago. More often than not, I’m in pain.

    It is better to have someone massage this on, than trying to do so yourself. Preferably used before bed, it enhances a restful night’s sleep & enables me to wake up feeling far less stiff, painful & I even feel more energized yet relaxed.

    No other lotion or cream seems to create that feeling quite so well, even with massage from someone else. I also like that it has no menthol or other strong odor & reduces the inflammation drastically

  19. Marc H on April 26, 2011 at 10:00 AM

    Maaannn this stuff works great…I compared labels and came up with this,,,I have a bad rotor cup an this EMU really worked

  20. J on March 1, 2011 at 1:03 PM

    Can’t say enough good things about this product. Helps painful hands and feet; seems to reduce swelling as well. I’m not allergic to it as I am of many other topical treatments for pain. As a bonus it doesn’t smell bad and feels lovely going on. Not sure why it works, but it does.

  21. anonymous on December 30, 2010 at 6:06 AM

    I broke my wrist and had alot of pain especially in my finger joints due to swelling. My doctor suggested this product and it is awsome. Better than any prescription pain pill!. I use it on my hands wrists, shoulders and back and its great.

    Another advantage is its a great moisturizer. Throw away all the other brands you have bought. This product far surpasses them… Use this several times a day and you will notice a better quality of life without the side affects of drugs.
