Emu oil is a deep penetrating, highly moisturizing nutritional supplement for your skin. Emu oil does not clog pores which allows the skin to breathe during the healing process. Emu oil is rich in essential fatty acids that feed the skin to aid in new cell development that promotes faster healing. Emu oil is also used to lessen or eliminate keloids and reduce recent scarring.
Massage emu oil daily to area 2-3 weeks prior to stretching to keep skin moist and pliable. Apply emu oil on new jewelry before insertion to ease glide. Emu oil helps to strengthen skin and can prevent tears or blowouts.
Apply emu oil 2-3 times daily after the piercing has been cleaned. Gently massage a single drop of emu oil around the piercing (entrance and exit) with clean finger.
Apply emu oil after new artwork is cleaned to relieve discomfort and reduce inflammation and redness. Emu oil will help set colors and reduce plasma oozing. Using emu oil 2-3 times daily on clean area will help keep artwork moist and reduces or eliminates the flaking and/or scabbing that often occurs.
Jewelry is measured through a gauge system (see chart below). The higher the gauge number the smaller the wire is. A standard "earring" is usually 20 gauge. Jewelry gauges/sizes can vary between manufacturers. There is no universal regulation on companies to make a standard size in body jewelry. A big part of this is that some jewelry is made overseas and measured in millimeters. And in the USA jewelry is measured in inches/gauges. So many times jewelry can be anywhere from .5mm to 1mm different.
