History of Ostrich Oil

There is a reason that the Ostrich has been around for 70 million years!
The use of Ostrich Oil for cosmetic beauty and healing properties is not a modern discovery. Historical documentation reports widespread use of Ostrich Oil by ancient Egyptian, Roman and African cultures well over 3,000 years ago. It is said that Cleopatra and Nephrites, the Queen of Sheba used ostrich oil to maintain their beauty. Refined oil from the Ostrich has been used for thousands of years to heal burns and reduce scarring, heal lesions and reduce skin irritations such as eczema, dermatitis, bed sores, dry skin, psoriasis to name a few.

Ostrich Oil provides relief from arthritis, joint pain, muscle aches, sprains & strains.

The Effect of Ostrich Oil on Joint and Muscle Pain:-
When joint or muscle pain hits, most people reach for tablets. However, there is a better alternative which has no ill-effects on the digestive system or other organs like most painkillers do – Ostrich Oil. Due to its powerful anti-inflammatory and superior penetrating properties, Ostrich Oil can penetrate the stratum corneum barrier (outer layer of skin) to provide relief from arthritis, as well as muscular aches and pains, bruising, strains and sprains.

Bruising and Muscle Pain:-
Ostrich oil can significantly reduce recent bruising and muscle pain where the injury is relatively superficial. The treatment being the massage and compress combination previously described. Similarly, sports related muscle strains have been significantly reduced with a post-exercise Ostrich Oil massage. Some trainers and masseurs use Ostrich Oil in preference to other oils, again indicating a superior anti-inflammatory action over commonly used embrocation.

The benefit of Ostrich Oil in reducing joint pain, swelling and stiffness is most evident on hands, feet, knees and elbows.
Stiff joints, particularly as seen in hands, is one area where massaging Ostrich Oil is of considerable benefit. The method used is to massage oil two or three times a day into the painful area.

Ostrich Oil is recommended for the relief of arthritis and muscular aches and pains. Previous studies have demonstrated the anti-inflammatory effects of Ostrich Oil on a variety of ailments and have shown that it may reduce swelling and inflammation and increase joint mobility. Ostrich Oil can also rapidly penetrate the skin barrier once applied so that it will quickly take effect on targeted areas such as sore muscles and joints.
