Details

Extracted from the seeds of the Onagraceae family of plants native to North and South America, evening primrose oil has been used to support health and female hormonal balance for hundreds of years, but it has multiple beneficial characteristics. Historically, European settlers and Native Americans used evening primrose, a wildflower that grows in eastern and central North America, for food. The oil is high in essential fatty acids, which are the building blocks for cell membranes and a variety of hormones and hormone-like substances. Essential fatty acids are necessary for human health, but the body can’t make them. You have to get them through food and/or supplements. Along with omega-3 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids play a crucial role in healthy brain function as well as normal growth and development.

In short, the body requires a healthy balance of essential fatty acids, such as omega-6s (found in evening primrose oil and more) and omega-3s (found in fish oil and more). Fats also function as carriers for important fat-soluble vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin K. Packed with gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and more, evening primrose oil has been historically recognized as a strong health supporter. More specifically, oil from the seed of evening primrose, is rich in essential fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a good-for-you, omega-6 fatty acid. 

Directions: Rub on skin to calm itchy areas or to soothe uncomfortable areas. Drizzle lightly on salads or add to cool or room-temp recipes. As a supplement, dilute one drop in 4 oz. of water, or place one drop into an empty supplement capsule, and consume.
