Evening Primrose oil (Oenothera biennis) contains Gama linoleic acid (GLA), vitamins and minerals. It is excellent for psoriasis, eczema, and wounds and to prevent premature aging. Can be used as a 10% additive to other carrier oils or may be used undiluted.
Evening Primrose Oil is one of the best sources of Gama linoleic acid, an omega 6 essential fatty acid. This oil works brilliantly on irritated, inflamed skin. It helps to promote healthy skin by nurturing the cell’s membranes. It can help to improve the skin’s hydration and protects skin from environmental stressors.
Evening primrose oil is particularly suited to skin suffering from adult onset acne, when you’re dealing with dry, dehydrated skin but are breaking out at the same time. It is also excellent for use in hot oil treatments for problem scalps and dry, damaged hair. This oil has also been used in conjunction with Seabuckthorn oil for use to help heal and nourish abused skin after radiation treatments.
Note: This is a natural product and therefore should be refrigerated to prolong its shelf life if you are purchasing in large quantities. Regular, everyday use – store in a cool, dark spot.
Evening Primrose can be found in the TLC Skincare Kit.
