Evening Primrose - Cert. Organic

Evening Primrose - Cert. Organic

Often known as suncups or sundrops, the flower opens in the evening and in most species, are yellow but can be found around the world in white, purple, pink and even red.  In whatever colour, the bloom is a favourite of local bees, due to the easy access to the flower’s pollen.

Poultices of primrose oil have traditionally been used to ease bruises and speed wound healing. 

The oil of the mature seeds of evening primrose contain approximately 7-10% gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), a rare essential fatty acid that is a cell regenerator, anti-inflammatory and is very emollient. It also contains terpenes and is astringent.
