Can I use Australian emu oil on burns?

Fatty Acids

Emu oil, which is the product derived from the rendered fat of the emu, naturally contains a high level of linolecic acid (a substance known to ease muscle ache and joint pain) and oleic acid, which provides a local anti-inflammatory effect. Emu oil has been successfully used in the healing process of burns, bruises, and muscle pain and a significant reduction in sports related muscle strains with pre- and post-exercise emu oil massage.
