What’s the one must-have product that should be in every family’s medicine cabinet? Emu oil.
This all natural multi-use product is essential for treating a range of health concerns across all ages, including and especially kids. Here are just 5 of the incredible uses and benefits of pure emu oil for children.
1. Reduce Pain from Bumps and Bruises
Give your kids relief from the pain of minor injuries, bumps and bruises. Emu oil’s anti-inflammatory effects are potent and fast acting, so massaging the oil onto affected areas can help minimise swelling and reduce pain.
2. Repel Bugs and Sooth Insect Bites
Especially in the Aussie great outdoors, kids will be exposed to bugs and insects everywhere they go. Rub emu oil on their skin before heading out to naturally repel mosquitoes and pesky bugs. If you forgot, fret not. Emu oil can also be used to soothe insect bites and reduce inflammation.
3. Treat Scrapes and Scratches
Minor skin wounds can be remedied with emu oil’s anti-inflammatory and bacteriostatic properties. The oil helps relieve pain and prevent bacteria from reproducing in cuts, scrapes or scratches. Furthermore, emu oil contains antioxidants that may also help protect skin from more damage and also prevent scarring.
4. Soothe Skin Issues
Kids suffering from chronic skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea, or experiencing rashes, chapped skin and other skin problems can apply a few drops of emu oil (instead of chemical creams that come with all sorts of side effects!). Emu oil being rich in antioxidants and easily absorbed into the skin layers, effectively soothes their skin naturally and gently.
5. Sensitive Skin
Emu oil is safe to use on sensitive skin. It doesn’t clog pores and helps to soothe skin irritation by penetrating deep into the epidermis to deliver moisturising goodness through the dermal layers to restore healthy skin function. If your child has dry, flaky skin, emu oil’s anti-inflammatory action helps to soften dry and rough patches with its natural fatty acids to deeply nourish, hydrate and protect.
