This healing lotion is wonderful on the skin....used on a regular base, your skin will love you. I love Emu oil for its healing components, but it is quite a pricy oil. Because this lotion is a butter, a little goes a long way. Use on your feet and wrap them up in plastic for the oil to absorb into the feet. Perfect on hands, lips....any where extra attention is needed. I found it a little to heavy on the face in the summer....but have used it in the winter time when the weather changes and you need that extra moisture. My nose cracks and dries during allergy season and in the wintertime...so using this lotion has been the perfect solution. Some other carrier and exotic oils can be exchanged for what is listed...it will still solidify in the tube, it will just have a different component to it!
