I had never heard of emu oil before ordering it to review. When I went on to order, I found that is can be used for a variety of things. Many of which, I need help with. Like stretch marks, scars and muscle and joint pain. Living with Fibromyalgia is not easy and it is also not easy to find something that can help me out with the pain. So I knew exactly what I was going to use this emu oil for.
First off, I want to say that I really liked the layout of the bottle. The top was unlike any I have seen. It is like a top from a liquid soap bottle but a whole lot shorter. The colors really aren't my cup of tea but they look pretty decent put together on this bottle. The wording was big enough to be read by almost anyone and the directions were pretty easy to read and understand. They are pretty much the same for everything you use it for.
For face and skin:
Pour 1-2 drops of InstaNatural Emu oil on your palm, rub the palms together to spread the oil and apply on the face. Emu oil is quick absorbing oil as it easily penetrates the skin. If you feel oily after application, you might have taken greater quantity than needed. Reduce the quantity the next time.
For hair and scalp:
Pour 1-2 drops of oil on your palm, rub the palms together and apply the oil on scalp and hair moving from root to the tip. Greater quantity may be needed for long hair. For deep nourishment, apply a few more drops, leave overnight and wash off the next morning.
Pour 1-2 drops on fingertips and gently massage on the affected area such as acne scars, dark spots, sunburn, stretch marks, burns, injuries etc.
I really couldn't find out how much to use for joint and muscle pain so I figured I would just wing it. I used 3-4 drops for this because I have pain all over my body. I basically found the spots that hurt the most and rubbed it all in until it wasn't oily anymore. The smell wasn't so bad, it was for sure better then the roll on stuff that I usually use. Sometimes it worked for me and other times it was basically just moisturizing my skin.
You get a huge bottle and a little bit goes a long way with this product. I have heard that you can keep it for a year to a year and half if you keep in a place where it isn't exposed to much moisture. If you were to keep it in the fridge though, it is said that the product can last up to 2 years. This product really seems to work for everything you can think of and I really like it.
