Sensitive skin & spot testing

Pure emu oil is very gentle, safe and has no reported side-effects, even on the most sensitive of skin. Although we only use natural ingredients in our products, you may wish to double check the ingredients for each individual product (listed on the product page) to make sure you are not allergic to anything. If in doubt please spot test our products on a small area before use, and always consult your doctor if you have any questions or concerns.

Using as a carrier oil

Emu oil is made up of tiny particles and is fully transdermal. This makes it very effective for use as a topical carrier oil. Emu oil can easily be paired with other essential oils, gels, lotions or creams to enhance these ingredients and transport them deep within the skin. To do so, simply add an adequate amount of your product to a small amount of pure emu oil and rub into the skin until fully absorbed.
