Clearly Emu Ultra Clear Emu Oil is a natural, anti-aging treatment that's a rich source of omega 3, 6 and 9 and provides superior anti-inflammatory and skin nourishing benefits. This odor-free, non-greasy oil can be used to treat aches and pains, problem skin, scars, stretch marks, burns and wounds. Since this is a highly potent form of pure emu oil, it also is an effective solution for shedding or thinning hair, as it promotes thicker, healthy hair growth.

TIA Review by Kate:
Just down the road from my home is a very cool Saturday "farmers market". Two years ago there was a vendor who was enthusiastically extolling an endless list of virtues for emu oil. According to his gospel-like shpeel, because emu oil is molecularly similar to human skin it is a wonderfully effective moisturizer for hair and body, a treatment for burns, a hair growth treatment, and a chemical -free anti-bacterial for the treatment of everything from dandruff to rashes. Being the smarty pants that I am, I knew his promises were too good to be true, and I did everything but roll my eyes and snicker at the crowd of believers who lined up to buy the small bottles of magic potion.
I, Kate, do hereby apologize to Mr. Emu Oil and his band of believers because scientific research suggests he just might have been telling the truth all along. Emu oil contains essential fatty acids: linoleic, oleic, and palmitic. Linolenic (omega-3 EFA) and linoleic (omega-6 EFA) have important nutritional effects on immune cell function, inflammatory responses, all organ systems, smooth muscle activity, the circulatory and cardiovascular systems. Oleic is a known to have anti-inflammatory properties.
What really has captured my attention is that topical applications of Emu oil may result in the growth of thicker hair..... both a thickening of existing hair shafts (which shrink in diameter with age) and a "re awakening" of the dormant (sleeping) hair shafts (which increase as a percentage of total hair shafts with age). So, in a quest for truth (and to satisfy my own curiosity) five months ago I started applying "molecularly distilled" emu oil to my scalp twice weekly, and leaving it in overnight. By the way, the great variation in price and quality in emu oil has largely to do with the "refining" process. Because emu oil penetrates so quickly and easily through your skin into your body, the refining differences are important. “fully refined” emu oil may still contain up to 10% impurities. The more expensive "Molecular distillation" process yields a very clean oil - free of impurities, bacteria, toxins and heavy metals. The variations in color have only to do with what the emu eats and nothing to do with quality. My recommendation: Spend a few extra bucks and buy emu oil which is "certified" and which has been through the "molecular distillation" process.
It is much too early in my experiment to decide how well Emu oil works as a growth/re-growth/thickening agent, but I must say that my hair and scalp are clearly in much better condition. Gray hair does not product the same amount of natural oils, and the emu oil seems to have provided a better balance. The Emu oil also has addressed the minor and sporadic (stress or diet caused) flair ups of itchy scalp I can experience during 1) the holiday season or 2) extreme cold weather "wool hat" season or 3) extreme hot weather "cowboy hat" season.
