Basically its a peeling method; it destroys cells,
so that your body will replace them.
The more you use it, the more it will destroy.
I read on the forum that vaseline was ok for the body; but for a wound, do you recommend it?
Vaseline is for radical protection against dehydration,
or to suffocate a yeast.
A wound needs to 'breathe'.
It will heal all by itself.
You should not apply anything; that may just cause scarring.
What kind of wound is it?
How did you get it?

So what's good for cracks and very dried itchy hands?

I don't have any, I just ask this because usually it is recommended to put some when you have small wound drying. "It will help to heal faster and make the dried blood to fall" as I often hear.
But if you ask this, it's because in some case vaseline may be needed?

Fat, fat and fat, continuously 'fed' to the skin on your hands.
And then vaseline is most effective as a 'sealer', as it stays on your skin the longest.

Sometimes it helps to put vaseline around the wound,
if that skin is also extremely dry and vulnerable;
it helps to 'isolate' the wound.
Just make sure not to put it in the wound itself.

Sure!
How much you need of it, and how often is, of course, individually different.
Simply keep your skin 'fatty'.

"extra virgin" and "organic" are important too for this use?

Not so much, as its not oil for consumption.
Of course you should not lick your lips...

Emu Oil

Post by WaiWay »

Does anyone have any experiences with this oil? Wai recommends oil low in vitamin e. Emu oil has vitamin e in it, but I don't think in particularly high amounts. Do you think this is a safe oil to use? I hear a lot of great things about it and have had good experiences with it personally.

I've just put some of it on the scalp for the first time, let's see if it helps with that hair loss..
I'm wondering if it's similar to chicken fat, as it's very expensive.
I don't think it has much vitamin E, as it's animal fat.

Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking! I heard it's main components are the fats it has, as well as it's ability to help treat a lot of different things. I'll experiment with it after I'm done with the sample diet.

Here's a neutral analysis of emu oil: http://www.ardatharomas.com/articles1.htm
It very much confirms my suspicion that it's just a hype.. and cheap chicken fat (if you don't mind the smell :)) would very probably work equally well. Or most other oils mentioned in that article.
So I'd suggest you to save your money and buy a cheaper oil.

I already have some though, do you think it's alright to use on my face, after the sample diet?

Solidified Emu Oil

Post by WaiWay »

My emu oil has some small particles floating around in it, so I'm assuming some of it solidified. Is it alright if I heat it up for a bit in the microwave before I apply it to my face? I don't plan on consuming it, but can a topical application be detrimental to skin if the oil has previously been heated?

If you apply it on the skin it will melt anyway.
