Have I told you lately how wonderful my friends are? If not, I am super blessed with a small group of amazing women in my life. My BFF of over 30 years gave me a divine gift for my birthday. I got to go to her house and take a long, luxurious, HOT bath. (Getting a hot bath at our home in the winter is pretty much impossible.) I love baths, and prefer them over showers immensely, so this was no little deal to me. She even fed me and took care of my children. BIG BONUS! This was the first time I tried the Pure Emu Oil. Koru Naturals Pure Emu Oil is a traditional Australian Aboriginal natural oil that is fully refined. It is milky white indicating that it has not been clarified and has retained all the naturally occurring essential ingredients. Let me just say that it is a wonderful addition to any spa experience. I ran the bath with some mineral salts (I knew I would be rinsing my hair in the bath, so I didn't add the oil directly to the water), turned on some relaxing music, and applied the Pure Emu Oil throughout my hair and over my entire scalp. I allowed the oil to stay on for at least a half hour, just because I could, and my hair and skin is always SO DRY in the winter. Can I just tell you how AMAZING my hair and skin felt after that bath. My hair was more soft and healthy feeling than it has been in years, and my skin was so smooth. It really felt great!
My 2 ounce bottle of Pure Emu Oil and my 1.4 ounce container of Koolpurrie Restoring Balm are like little treasures sitting on my desk. I keep them on hand all the time. I regularly use the balm on my hands. The dry, winter heat makes my hand red and sore. The balm relieves this instantly. The Pure Emu Oil gets rubbed behind my ears, where my psoriasis is most bothersome, on a regular basis. I have even put a tiny bit on a cotton swab and gently applied it just inside my ears as the psoriasis can even present there, and it has been a tremendous help. There is still no flaking in my ears since I started this a few weeks ago. I have also given myself another oil treatment on my hair and scalp since my spa day. This is something I will continue regularly. I think one of the best things about both the oil and the balm is that they are not greasy. It's difficult to wrap my brain around how an oil can not be greasy, but it isn't. Each time I have used the Pure Emu Oil as a treatment for my hair and scalp it has absorbed into my skin and hair very quickly. What a difference from the traditional hot oil treatments I grew up with! It has never stained my clothing or my pillowcase. I literally slept with the oil in my hair overnight, and there wasn't a mark on my pillowcase. That was simply amazing to me.
I am super excited about the product line at Koru Naturals and look forward to trying more from them in the future. My skin is so much happier today than it was before the Pure Emu Oil and Koolpurrie Restoring Balm.
