Spring has finally sprung again (and if you’re unlucky, so have your allergies).
The flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and it makes us ponder this: Emu oil is a multi-purpose remedy that can be used all year round. But why do so many customers bring their bottle of Emu Spirit out of the medicine cabinet especially in the springtime?
We can think of 4 reasons why your bottle of 100% Pure Oil of Emu is in heavy use this season…
1. Emu Oil provides an extra layer of sun protection
Sunnier spring days means there’s a higher chance you will encounter sun damage to your skin, especially in Australia. Emu oil – when applied underneath a regular sunscreen – can provide you with additional defense from the sun due to its natural sun factor. While it’s not a replacement for sunscreen, emu oil can provide an extra layer of protection for your skin against dehydration from the sun. It’s great for households who are concerned about all the chemicals contained in regular sunscreen formulations.
2. Emu Oil eases itching and discomfort from bug bites
Springtime is when the bugs and insects come out to play. Your family will be exposed wherever and whenever they’re outdoors. Many families rub emu oil on their skin before heading out, as a way to naturally repel mosquitoes and pesky bugs. This is exactly how emu oil was used by natives thousands of years ago. Emu oil is also great for soothing itchy, painful skin from insect bites – we’re sure the kids have had their fair share of emu oil!
3. Emu Oil bolsters your resistance to seasonal pollen and allergies
“Ahh-choo!” That’s the sound of spring, for the allergy-prone amongst us. The transition into warmer weather may trigger seasonal allergies, also called hay fever or allergic rhinitis. If your immune system overreacts to allergens like plant pollen, you’ll begin to experience a lot of sneezing, itching and congestion. For many of our customers, allergies run in the family. They rely on emu oil to give them a natural allergy immunity boost, by just adding a spoonful of pure emu oil to their daily diet. It may help relieve symptoms like the nose-dripping and the eye-watering, so you can just enjoy the sunshine instead of itching your way through the season.
4. Emu Oil helps to reduce Rheumatoid Arthritis flare ups
So many Rheumatoid Arthritis sufferers swear they experience aching joints during a period of changing in weather; forget flowers – a flare up is the symbol for a new season. The most common use of emu oil is to manage the symptoms associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The Omega-3 fatty acids may help reduce the level of inflammation, as well as the muscle and joint pain caused by this chronic condition. Many customers use emu oil both topically and internally: they massage the oil directly onto your body, and ingest it by taking a spoonful or adding it to a cold drink such as orange juice. This method manages the painful symptoms from the inside and out (a strategy we most definitely recommend!).
