Thunder Ridge emu oil is produced from one of the largest emu farms in the eastern United States.
Thunder Ridge’s CEO, Anne Geller, has been raising emus since the early 1990’s and her company offers a variety of emu oil products; ranging from emu soaps, moisturizing lotions and nutritional supplements.
Thunder Ridge is reported to also be a member of the American Emu Association (AEA) and their emu oils are AEA-Certified Highly Refined.

We found Thunder Ridge emu oil to have a very smooth texture with a light, whitish yellow color.
The oil was odorless and we couldn’t detect any traces of rancidity.
We did a small skin test with the oil and found it absorbed fairly easily into the skin without any residual greasiness or stickiness.
The best place to purchase many of these types of products is either directly from the manufacturers or from online retailers.
