How to Prevent and Treat Scarring With Emu Oil

Emu oil is often called the “Miracle from Down Under.” It has been touted for years for its anti-aging qualities. Recently it has gained even more recognition for its effectiveness in treating scars. Using emu oil to reduce and prevent scarring yields wonderful results.

Buy 100 percent pure, refined emu oil. This oil will yield the best results.

Massage 1 or 2 drops of emu oil into the scarred tissue 2 or 3 times daily. You can break down the tissue by massaging the scar in every direction (horizontally, vertically and in a circular motion).

Immediately apply emu oil liberally to burns (including sunburns). It has both antibacterial and moisturizing properties that reduce blistering and scarring.

Store your emu oil in a cool, dark place. Since emu oil is a natural oil, it will slowly deteriorate over time. It can last several months if you store it properly.
