Walkabout Emu Oil

Walkabout Emu Oil is rich in naturally occurring vitamin K2 MK-4, the most potent form of K2—up to 10 times the amount found in butter oil or ghee, and the only form known to cross the placenta.

Vitamin K2 was something our ancestors used to consume in abundance, and has all but disappeared from our modern diets.

    • The best food source of naturally occuring vitamin K2 MK-4
    • A warm-blooded source of omega 3, 6, 7 and 9
    • A highly absorbable source of vitamins A, D and E
    • A naturally occurring source of Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
    • Gentle on the stomach, smooth bland flavor, no burping or aftertaste
    • Assembled and balanced by nature—nothing added to or taken out



WILD MAMAS / Walkabout Emu Oil is an unsurpassed and synergistic combination of nutrients formulated and balanced by Mother Nature and readily used by the body. It is 100% pure and unadulterated—nothing is added to the oil and nothing is taken out.

Emu oil is about 70% fatty acids, omegas 3, 6 and 9. This is what sets emu oil apart as a powerful anti-inflammatory. It is also rich in antioxidants like vitamins A and E. And a great source of naturally occurring vitamin D3 and vitamin K2 (MK4).

The oil is a traditional animal fat derived from the emu - a large, flightless bird native to Australia. Emus are the second largest bird in the world after the ostrich. They have the unique ability to build fat stores that enable them to live without food for long periods of time. So, our Emu Oil is actually a life-sustaining fat!

The emu is able to live for months without food or water and still stay robustly healthy, retaining their ability to reproduce (all while living in the Australian Outback, one of the most inhospitable places on earth). 

Walkabout Health has been researching the uniquely powerful and anti-inflammatory properties of emu oil for well over a decade. Finding high quality oil in the United States isn’t possible. The oil in the U.S. is highly processed and refined. Walkabout Health found wonderful emu farmers in Australia. They produce authentic and pristine emu oil, proven to be unadulterated, unprocessed, and nutrient-dense with high biological activity. 

Traditional wisdom is still relevant today. Our nutritional needs have not changed in thousands of years. To attain optimal health we need to incorporate the fundamentals of primitive, nutrient-dense food in our diets. This is why we include the emu oil in our pregnancy stack.

One of the greatest differentiators of our emu oil is its high vitamin K2 content. Walkabout Emu Oil is rich in naturally occurring vitamin K2 MK-4, the most potent form of K2—up to 10 times the amount found in butter oil or ghee.

Vitamin K2 was something our ancestors used to consume in abundance, and has all but disappeared from our modern diets.

What is Emu Oil?

WILD MAMAS / Walkabout Australian Emu Oil is different from any other traditional supplement oil on the market. At certain times of the year, emu will go into a torpor, sort of like a hibernation. They will go months without eating or even moving. They store up fat prior to this torpor in order to live through the time without food. This emu oil, used by the Aboriginals and harvested by Walkabout, is this life-sustaining fat. It is super nutritious and loaded with vitamins.

Why do you leave your Emu Oil unadulterated?

Nature is stronger than any human design.

The nutrients within whole foods work synergistically; they operate in a matrix, as teams, to feed our cells. Isolated and synthetic vitamins contain only a fraction of the vitamin complexes and they lack the cofactors and micronutrients found in nature. This is why we do not absorb them. Emu oil is bioavailable. Our bodies absorb all its goodness. 

Whole food and whole food supplements provide all these synergists, cofactors, vitamin complexes and energies that naturally occur within a food and make them work at their optimal. This simply cannot be duplicated in a laboratory. 

Our emu oil is a warm-blooded source of: omega 3, 6, 7 and 9, vitamins A, D3, E, and also very rich in vitamin K2 MK-4, AA, ATP and CLA.

Who can benefit from adding our Emu Oil to their daily health routine?

The traditional Aboriginals knew that during certain times in their lives, when more demands or stresses were made on their bodies, they would increase their emu oil consumption. These times include pre-conception (for both parents), pregnancy, lactation, during rapid growth periods, and as they aged.

We believe emu oil should be part of everyone’s daily nutrition. The vital nutrients in our oil are difficult to find in our modern diets.

Why is Emu Oil especially important for pregnant mamas and their babies?

Although all micronutrients are of great importance, we will focus here on one special vitamin, vitamin K2, and its special role in conception, pregnancy, and birth. Vitamin K2, a fat-soluble vitamin, comes from a big family called menaquinones (MK), which range from MK-4 to MK-13. The only member of this family that is a vitamin is menaquinone-4. A vitamin is defined as a substance that cannot be made in the body and must be obtained from food.

Why did WILD MAMAS choose Walkabout Australian Emu Oil?

1) Genotype of the birds

2) Feed and husbandry

3) Traditional refining methods

4) The emus are unvaccinated, unmedicated, unadulterated 

Research into the benefits of emu oil began in the 1980’s in Australia. High biological activity was found in the oil from birds living in the wild. This research triggered interest in emu farmers to replicate that biological activity in farm raised birds. It is from these conscientious farmers that we source our oil.

From the 1980’s to present day, Walkabout’s emu farmers have been doing their own research through universities, hospitals, and on their own farms. This research has demonstrated that the genotype of the bird is paramount in producing the highest quality oil.

While our farmers were studying the emu, others were breeding for “big birds,” trying to increase the amount of meat and oil per bird. By breeding different genotypes, the result was an inconsistent quality of oil.

Walkabout Emus are genetically selected and separated on the farms—no crossbreeding! All emus in the rest of the world come from inferior zoo stock. Australia banned exportation of emus in the 1960s. No one outside of Australia has access to these base genotypes.

For ten years, these farmers made trips into “emu country” to learn to emulate the birds' natural feed. They studied emus in their natural environment, analyzed their droppings and their dietary habits. They found that correct feed significantly increased the biological activity of the oil. Walkabout’s emus are fed in accordance with this important research. The birds are farmed on virgin soils in Australia and roam in large pastures. No GMO feed, vaccinations, antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides or chemicals of any kind are allowed on these farms.

The years of research would have counted for little without the correct refining method. Katta, an Aboriginal Elder, shared with Walkabout’s farmers the traditional method for refining the oil. Combining this tradition, with science, has been the guide to preserving our emu oil’s natural characteristics. It leaves the oil unadulterated, the way nature intended.

Other companies use techniques such as stripping agents, deodorizers, bleaches, high temperatures, molecular distillation and winterizing. This results in loss of efficacy and destroys its natural synergy.

Wild Mamas and Walkabout Health Products both take a holistic approach to our products and treat the emu oil as a sacred food supplement to support the nourishment of our community.
