2. Wound Healing

One of the first recorded uses of emu oil was for the healing of wounds. The indigenous people of Austrailia used it to promote healing. It is only recently in the United States that emu oil has become more widely used by physicians for its healing properties. It is most effective on open wound healing. Pure oil, with no added ingredients, works best and will not agitate a wound. There are even records in the US of emu oil helping heal wounds with gangrene, ultimately saving patients from amputation. Microscopic skin evaluations show enhanced skin repair and new skin formation on wounds.
