These beautiful wildflowers only bloom and dance in the evenings, while gently lighting up nature with their delicate, bright yellow petals; hence their romantic name, Evening Primrose. Native to North America and Europe, these biennial flowers have been treasured by indigenous tribes for their numerous medicinal benefits for centuries. All parts of this medicinal plant, from the roots to the leaves, blossoms, and seeds, boast not only of endless healing benefits but offer culinary pleasure as well.
Once the flower’s seeds are pressed into a precious golden oil, it offers a potent punch of nutrition which can be enjoyed both inside and out. Ever since it was discovered in the early 1930’s that evening primrose's precious oil contains high amounts of the rare gamma-linolenic acid, short GLA, it has been used for a number of health concerns from eczema to PMS, breast pain, hormonal imbalance, and dermatitis. As this highly anti-inflammatory GLA, a particular plant-derived omega-6 fatty acid, can’t be made by our own body, it’s essential we include nature’s abundant sources to ensure our skin, hair, nails, and joints stay nourished and strong. GLA helps to effectively prevent moisture loss and strengthens the skin barrier, while it’s anti-inflammatory properties treat and prevent inflammatory conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, and acne. Additionally, GLA speeds up the healing process and the regrowth of healthy, new cells, while gently diminishing the appearance of scars and blemishes. Evening primrose oil’s antioxidant properties are said to provide protection against free radical damage and naturally boost the skin’s elasticity.
