DESCRIPTION:Evening primrose is valued for its noteworthy essential fatty acid content, consisting primarily of the omega-6 EFAs linolenic acid and gamma linolenic acid. The oil is obtained by cold pressing the seeds of Evening Primrose plant, Oenotherabiennis. Evening primrose is usually blended in a small (often 10%) dilution with other carrier oils.
CONSTITUENTS:Gamma Linolenic- 9.4% Linoleic- 75.5% Oleic- 7.0% Palmitic- 5.8%

USES:Evening Primrose is used in manufacturing and in dilution with other carrier oils suitable for massage. It is particularly useful for mature skin and is sometimes useful to combat cellulitis.
