Evening Primrose Oil

Evening Primrose Seed Oil is pressed the seeds of the Evening Primrose plant, Oenothera biennis . The yellow flowers only open in the evening, hence their common name. Evening Primrose is a common wildflower found in North America, Europe, and parts of Asia


The plant was used by Native Americans and early settlers as a nutritional support and to treat against conditions such as sore throats, stomachaches, hemorrhoids, and bruises. Evening Primrose has also been used medicinally in Europe since the seventeenth century. Over the last 20 years, this oil has once again become popular for its medicinal properties, and is now a common dietary supplement.

Medicinal Use

(Please note we do not sell products for internal use, the information here is purely for use as guidance about evening primrose)

With the popularity of anti-fat diets and trends, many people are under the incorrect impression that all fats are bad, and that they should be avoided. However, this is a falsehood, and the truth is that some fats are necessary and vital for our health. Essential Fatty Acids support our physiological functions, and are essential for the health of our organs and overall health. Essential Fatty Acids cannot be produced by our own bodies, and instead must be obtained from dietary sources. Evening Primrose Seed Oil is a rich source of gamma linoleic acid, an Omega 6 fatty acid that is needed for our cardiovascular, immune, nervous, and reproductive systems, and to maintain healthy cells and body functions. In addition, Evening Primrose Seed Oil has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects and may also act as a blood thinner and blood vessel dilator. Specifically, Evening Primrose Seed Oil has been shown to be effective for the following conditions:

  • Premenstrual symptoms: menstrual cramps and breast tenderness.
  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Signs of ageing
  • Diabetes associated nerve damage
  • Eczema
  • Nourishes the scalp, hair, and nails
  • Altheimer's related memory deficiencies
  • Damage from Multiple Sclerosis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Inflammation from Lupus
  • Numbness or tingling in hands, feet, or legs.
  • Alcohol withdrawal symptoms
  • Impotence and female infertility
  • Raynaud's disease symptoms
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Fibrocystic breast disease
  • Osteoporosis
  • Skin ulcers
  • Attention Deficit Disorder
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Weight loss
  • High blood pressure

Because of its many health benefits, Evening Primrose Seed Oil is truly a wonderful supplement. It may be taken alone, or can be drizzled on top of salads or other prepared meals. For cosmetic use, simply add it once that the product no longer needs to be heated. Evening Primrose Seed Oil should not be heated
