Default Holy Grail DT!!!

http://www.daybreaklavenderfarm.com/...-pr-16676.html

The descrition is at the end of this post!

I am addicted to this with a touch of cocunut oil + heat, or overnight. My hair looks/feels fantastic - so incredibly healthy and soooft.

This company also has a lot of oils - one (for skincare) is made with jojoba and lavendar, only. Do you think that lavendar would dry hair out? Hmmmm. Anyhow, check out Emu Oil. You won't regret it!

Emu Oil ...DayBreak's is Unrefined and Proud of it!


If you're a FaceFeed fan, or Every Good Thing user, you know that DayBreak's been into Emu oil since 2002. You also know that our Emu Oil, like our Shea Butter, is 100% unrefined with everything Mother Nature made it with. Y'all know what happens in the refining process ... all those natural lil' nubbins get eliminated in the name of shelf-life but it's those nubbins that give both Emu and Shea their remarkable healing properties. Also, not all refining processes are equal ... some involve filtering with nasty chemicals while others use natural clays. Regardless, refined Emu oil is simply less in every way -- not more than -- UN-Refined Emu Oil. It's UN-messed with, UN-subtracted from and UN-degraded!! And much harder to come by ... we have always had to import ours from Australia or New Zealand. All the US sources offer only refined ... nope, not good enough for DayBreak customers, thank you!! We offer you Unrefined Emu Oil in two ways .... P/U & F/U! Read on!!

Pure Unrefined Emu Oil (P/U) What's the deal with Emu? Emu Oil's properties were first recognized by a burn unit in an Australian hospital where it was seen to markedly shorten recovery time. It is a fast-absorbing oil, rapidly penetrating into the skin, making it an excellent trans-dermal carrier for phytonutrients, Vitamins A, D, E & K, moisturizers or therapeutic ingredients.

In most instances, Emu oil is hypoallergenic. It is also non-comedogenic and a natural anti-inflammatory without the negative side-affects frequently common with ibuprofen or other OTC pain remedies, traditional prescription or corticosteroid based anti-inflammatory medications. Emu Oil contains both Omega-3 and Omega-6 Fatty Acids which are also important to oxygen transfer, hemoglobin production, and control of nutrients through cell membranes.

Like Shea Butter, I wouldn't call Emu a "cure-all" but I would call it a "help-all". Here are some of the ways our customers want to use Pure Emu..

Acne
Age Spots
Arthritis
Bed Sores
Bruises, Cuts & Lacerations
Burns
Chapped Lips
Complexion Problems
Conditioning Hair
Contact Dermatitis
Cracked Skin
Diaper Rash
Dishpan Hands
Dry Skin
Eczema
Fingernail Cuticles
Hemorrhoids
In-Grown Toenails (Softens tough skin)
Insect Bites
Irritated Skin
Itching
Joint Pain (Often blended with MSM powder)
Keloids

No offense, but I think that it is disgusting and pitiful to think that they kill animals just for human beauty.

I thought emu is used as meat same as cows chickens, lambs etc? I'm pretty sure I've read about that.
I can't use oils generally for a DT alone but I'm glad you found something that works for you!

Agreed.

I believe emus are raised on farms, just like buffalo and even deer are, for meat. Or rabbits, and ducks. I know that you can get dog food made with emu meat and no other meats, for dogs that have food allergies. My dogs eat a dog food made with duck meat.

I have tried emu oil and I will say that I'm not too fond of rubbing it on my skin...I can't get the thought of chicken fat out of my head (even though what I've purchased doesn't LOOK like chicken fat).

Hi, I am glad that you found something that works so well for you and how very sweet of you to take the time to share your success with the rest of us. I will have to give it a try. I have been hearing great things about emu oil and my hair is super dry. Thanks again! I think it is great when us Curly Sisters stick together and help each other out.

So...I guess a nice pair of leather boots is not on your holiday wish list?

Emu oil is a by-product of the emu meat industry. Just as leather is a by-product of the beef industry.
