Evening Primrose Oil

Evening primrose oil comes from the evening primrose wildflower, the actual oil is sourced from the flower’s seeds. It contains gamma-linolenic acid as well as linoleic acid, both are omega 6 fatty acids. (Ehrlich, 2015) Evening primrose oil is useful in treating symptoms of premenstrual syndrome, conditions related to arthritis, and eczema. (Ehrlich, 2015) It can also be helpful when it comes to menopausal symptoms. Evening primrose oil may also be beneficial in obtaining clear skin and overall skin health by clearing up acne. (McDermott, 2017) Skin inflammation and the number of skin cells that cause lesions may be reduced due to the gamma linolenic acid in the oil. (McDermott, 2017).
