Essential Oil of Organic Evening Primrose is known for many scientifically-proven healing properties for all kinds of health complaints, ranging from PMS to HDAD in children, and even rheumatoid arthritis. This organic essential oil is an incredibly healing plant that contains an Omega-6 essential fatty acid known as Gamma-linolenic Acid (GLA), that has actually been licensed in several countries for the effective treatment of common skin disorders. It is also popular in anti-aging skincare products for treatment of dark circles under the eyes, wrinkles and age spots, and is highly effective in decreasing acne skin blemishes and inflammation due to its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
How to Use: Simply apply pure, Organic Evening Primrose Oil directly to the affected areas on the skin and /or nails, after mixing a few drops of the oil with another carrier oil, like organic sweet almond oil or organic extra virgin coconut oil. Significant improvement in the symptoms of many skin disorders will result with regular, daily use. For example, in eczema sufferers the oil reduces itching, dryness and peeling of the skin after 3 or 4 months of regular use. Organic Evening Primrose essential Oil is a lovely, natural, organic alternative treatment to using steroid creams and topical immuno-modulators, containing chemicals which can cause further damage and distress to the skin.
Treatment of Eczema: In 1982, a prestigious medical journal reported the results of a double-blind crossover study in which 99 patients diagnosed with ectopic eczema, a sore, dry and always itchy rash on the skin, were given high doses of Organic Evening Primrose Oil, and 43% of them reported significant improvement in their symptoms! A different Scottish study demonstrated that this essential oil is also beneficial to nails that have become dry and brittle.
Treatment of Psoriasis: Pure essential oil of Evening Primrose is anti-inflammatory in nature and also increases circulation. Further studies have shown that it reduces burning and itching when subjects regularly applied the oil to psoriasis lesions.
PMS Reduction: Organic Evening Primrose Oil is known to have an amazing effect on PMS symptoms. In 1981 a study was done at St. Thomas’ Hospital, London, in which 65 women experiencing PMS were treated using the essential oil; 61% of the women experienced complete relief of symptoms and 23% reported partial relief.
Treatment of Acne: Topical application of the pure oil of Evening Primrose greatly decreases blackheads, pimples and inflammation caused by acne! This is because the oil lowers the amount of sebum in the pores of the skin, which prevents pores clogging and the inflammatory symptoms of acne. This is largely possible due to the significant anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities also inherent in this essential oil, bonus healing properties!
