I use this product in my business and home and can highly recommend it.

Emu oil can be used topically on the skin as a moisturizer for dry, chapped, chafed, and cracked skin. Its anti-inflammatory properties are derived from the Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids it contains. Emu oil is soothing on a wide spectrum of conditions including arthritis, bursitis, and scarring.
