Well I would, of course, recommend our farm's oil, haha! Of course my website is down as we are creating a new partnership with another farmer and not doing business while we iron out the specs of the agreement. But you can order our products thru my parent's farm site carlhavenemufarm.com, although you have to send a check - they aren't set up to take credit like we were which is a PITA. Otherwise, look for a site that sells directly from the farm. If the price seems way lower than other sites, then assume it is cut with soy or other cheap oils. We used to say get AEA certified oil, but recently found out the the main processor of oil in the US has been cutting the oil from the small farms with lower quality oil from India. So frankly, the emu oil scene is a bit of a purist's nightmare right now. The farmer we are partnering with has the funds and the feed options to get certified organic, so we hope within 18 months or so to have the first ever certified organic emu oil - which doesn't help any of us with these pregnancies, I know, but will be sold at Kaylala.com when it's available.
Happyday, it doesn't technically have a smell (like say, tamanu or coconut), but is not devoid of smell like water, if you know what I mean! It smells like oil. Like Sunflower or some other kind of innocuous oil. As a carrier oil, it is transdermal (which is one of it's major attributes) so you need to be aware of that if adding EOs - it will take them through your skin and into your blood stream - so only do that if you are trying to ingest the EO.
