evening primrose

{Oenothera biennis}    

General: Native American medicine men have used Evening Pimrose seed oil since ancient times to make an infusion for healing wounds because it reduces bacteria and infection as well as reduces inflammation.

Skin Benefits: Anti-inflammatory; calms sensitive & irritated skin—see our Pitta Ayurvedic Facial Serum; antioxidants reverse environmental damage—see our Youth in Bloom Phyto-active Firming Night Cream; very high in gamma linoleic acid, an Omega 6 fatty acid necessary for cardiovascular, immune, nervous, and reproductive systems, and to maintain healthy cells and body functions—it is a great, nourishing addition to our powerful, popular Brighen Up! Creamy Face Polish.

Method of Extraction: Cold-pressed from the seeds.
