Used Emu oil for the first time there and love it. Its one of the best moisturizers I've ever used. Recommend it to anyone who hasn't used it.

I like Emu Oil as well. When my skin gets really dry or red, I'll put some oil on the affected areas before bed. I find it makes a huge difference.

I have not tried emu oil and am very curious. Do you happen to know - what part of the animal is it from? I have heard that some people are troubled by the odor? Does it have a meaty aroma or is that because folks get a cheaper brand that doesn't keep well?

The small jar I got smelled all right when I opened it -- it was recommended to me to use on a sore -- I used it a couple of times and the next time it smelled a bit off. Maybe it should be refrigerated.

Mireckca. It smells like fried chicken to me....Since the emu has to be killed for its oil/fat, I stay away from it. I have heard there is a highly purified brand that doesn't smell as "chicken-y".

Squalene oil (from olives, not the kind from shark) is a good alternative.
