Essential Fatty Acid
Emu oil contains a variety of fatty acids including oleic, linolenic and linoleic oils. Oleic is the main fatty acid in emu oil, which is an omega-9. Linoleic oil is an omega-6, while linolenic is an omega-3.
Studies that took place at the University of Adelaide in Australia researched the topical effects of emu oil, showed that it decreases inflammation. The researchers found that emu oil was able to reduce inflammation in the lining of the gut, as well as improved the structure of the mucosal membranes.
Emu oil’s anti-inflammatory properties may extend to easing arthritis pain and inflammation. In a study published in 1997 in the journal “Inflammopharmacology,” researchers in Australia found topical emu oil applications to reduce arthritis in rats. Interestingly, Aborigines have used emu oil for thousands of years, applying it directly to the skin and ingesting the meat of the bird, claiming its ability to cure a variety of ailments, including arthritis pain.
Emu oil is also observed to be of potential use in burns and other wounds, helping to reduce inflammation. Researchers from the Southern Medical University in China discovered that topical applications of emu oil could reduce inflammation in scald wounds. Published in the ”Academic Journal of the First Medical College of PLA” in April of 2005, emu oil was found effective when applied on days one through three after the injury, as compared to the other treatments, which were saline and iodine.
