Evening Primrose is a tall, spiky plant that would burst into bloom only in the early evening and would soon die, which is where it gets its name. This would lead to the formation of pods containing tiny seeds (similar in size to mustard seed) from which the oil is obtained. It can grow almost anywhere.

North American Indian medicine men were the first to recognize its potential as a healing agent and used to brew the seed pods to make an infusion for healing wounds.

This oil is highly unsaturated, however, rich in fatty acids. Especially, high levels of gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), a substance much like the body's own chemical metabolism regulator.

Fatty Acid Composition:

Palmitic .....................................6.2%
Stearic .........................................1.8%
Oleic ...........................................6.7%
Linoleic .......................................73.8%
Gamma Linolenic ................................10.2%
Other Fatty Acids ...............................1.3%

Usage:
Evening Primrose has been found to be effective for the treatment of:

* useful for dry scaly skin,
* dandruff conditions,
* helpful for eczema,
* beneficial for those with psoriasis,
* dry or prematurely aged skin,
* PMS
* rheumatoid arthritis.
* accelerates wound healing

It is very fine & readily absorbed into the superficial layers of the skin. Use in a 10% dilution with another carrier oil. Also, an excellent massage oil, mixed with lavender for treating anxious children.

Recommend to refrigerate to extend shelf life.
