Emu oil

Emu oil is said to have medicinal benefit and to be useful for various purposes. Although the emu is an Australian flightless bird, not all emu oil is of animal origin.

There are two different types of emu oil, with different origins. The first type is made by rendering down the fat of the emu. Vegetarian emu oil is also sold, made from a particular native plant.
