Ancient Apothecary Evening Primrose Essential Oil 

For topical, aromatherapy or dietary purposes.

Extracted from the seeds of the Onagraceae family of plants native to North and South America, evening primrose oil has been used 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.

Evening primrose oil has no scent and can be applied neat (undiluted) to the desired area.

Cautions: Possible skin sensitivity. Consult your physician before use, especially if pregnant, nursing, taking medication or if you have a medical condition. Avoid eyes, mucous membranes, and sensitive skin. Keep out of reach of children.

Evening primrose oil uses:

  • Rub on the 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 to 4 ounces of water, or place one drop into an empty supplement capsule, and consume.
  • During the fall and winter seasons, use on the skin as a daily moisturizer.
  • Add a drop or two to shampoo and conditioner to nourish the scalp and hair.
  • Rub evening primrose oil on desired areas, such as muscles or joints, for soothing relief.

Evening primrose oil works well as a carrier oil with many essential oils, including lavender essential oil, lemon essential oil, peppermint essential oil, basil essential oil, rosemary essential oil, rose oil, grapefruit essential oil, orange essential oil and geranium essential oil.
