Evening Primrose Oil

Botanical Name: Oenothera biennis
Aroma: Light and Sweet.
Viscosity: Thin.
Absorption/Feel: Leaves a Trace of Oil on the Skin.
Color: Medium Yellow.
Shelf Life: 6 Months.
Notes: Evening Primrose Oil is a prized oil in skin care for its noteworthy essential fatty acid content, consisting primarily of the omega-6 EFAs linolenic acid and gamma linolenic acid.
Evening Primrose Oil has been used in aromatherapy and natural skin care to aid many skin conditions including eczema.
Evening Primrose Oil is expensive and is usually blended in a small (often 10%) dilution with other carrier oils. By their nature, essential fatty acids deteriorate quickly. Evening Primrose Oil, therefore, goes rancid rather quickly.
