What it is
Emu Oil is an oil obtained from the fat of the Australian Emu bird. Emu Oil is mainly made up of unsaturated fatty acids, like oleic acid (20%) and essential fatty acids like linoleic acid (20%) and linolenic acid (1-2%).
What it does
Emu Oil has moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties.
Emu Oil is generally considered to be safe.
However, pregnant women are recommended to use only the pure type of emu oil (without essential oils). That is because some essentials oils should be avoided during pregnancy and it is actually best for safety reasons not to use any at all during the first months.
