The Australian Aborigines are one of the most ancient and still living primitive societies on the planet. For eons they have utilized traditional health practices and retained their robust health. The Aborigines prized emu fat as one of their “sacred foods” for health and healing and have long incorporated it into their mythical “dreamtime” spirituality. Because the emu shares the inhospitable Australian Outback environment with the Aborigines and manages to survive well on only its fat reserves, the fat was revered as a precious food and medicine by the traditional culture. Weston A. Price, the famous dentist and nutritionist of the 20th century who studied the Australian Aborigines as well as other indigenous groups, proclaimed their diets to be rich in fat soluble vitamins and activators which accounted for their low incidence of chronic health problems as compared with people in the developed world. Perhaps the time has come to bring a little “sacred” healing oil into our own lives?
Walkabout Emu Oil
Emus are large birds, native to Australia and similar looking to Ostriches. They cannot fly, but they can do something perhaps even more amazing! They can go without food, essentially fasting, for months at a time usually while sitting on their nest. In order to endure this long period of nutritional deprivation, emus have an ability to store nutrient dense fat in a special fat pocket on their back. Until recently, Emus living in the wild had higher quality oil than those raised commercially. Now Walkabout has been able to replicate this potent wild emu oil by raising emus on Australian farms using their natural habitats and food sources. Raised as genetically distinct groups with no crossbreeding, Walkabout emus are specific genotypes ensuring the highest quality oil. Walkbout Emu Oil is guaranteed to meet strict standards for purity and quality. It is registered with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), which oversees the production of natural supplements. Walkabout imports the Aborigine’s life-sustaining emu oil from Australia to treat your myriad of health and beauty needs.

Emu oil is a whole food, not a manufactured vitamin compound. As such the miraculous benefits come from the synergy of nutrients found in precious combination in the oil. Nevertheless, it is possible to test for and quantify some of the components in order to better understand the harmony of vital healing agents. Walkabout Emu Oil has consistently shown to be higher in nutrients compared to other brands due to their free-range farming and feeding practices.
