Emu Oil
« on: 21/12/2007 15:22:59 »
Has anyone tried it?  I've been told that it has amazing healing properties.  Both Nic and his karate instructor have used it on sore muscles and they both say the relief is immediate.

Just wondering if anyone else has had experience with it and if it is as good as I hear or is it all hype?
I'm especially curious to see whether it helps with Fibromyalgia.

These are some of the many ailments where Emu Oil is said to be beneficial.
