Evening Primrose Oil Organic (Oshadhi) 30ml

Fresh evening primrose flowers next to a bowl of evening primrose oilEvening Primrose Oil Organic


Though it sounds like it might be related to the ever-romantic and regal rose we all know and love, evening primrose is actually quite different. It’s a small, yellow wildflower found in North America, Europe, and parts of Asia that’s most sought-out for its oil. In fact, generations have been using primrose oil for centuries for its beauty and health benefits.

Understanding Evening Primrose Oil


  • Relief from Skin Conditions - Evening primrose oil might help relieve symptoms of notoriously difficult-to-treat and painful skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema. The high omega-6 fatty acid content of primrose oil helps ease symptoms. If you have eczema and psoriasis, apply a combination of evening primrose oil with coconut oil topically every day, though it’s important to consult your doctor to ensure it won’t interfere with any medications you might be taking.
  • Help Reduce Wrinkles - Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), which is found in evening primrose oil, is known to have a multitude of skin benefits including smoothing wrinkles. The inclusion of this nourishing ingredient in skin care is known to help with smoothing roughness, too. Try applying evening primrose oil to your face and neck regularly.
  • Slow Hair Loss - Studies have indicated that using evening primrose oil topically might help with hair loss. One study, by the University of Maryland, which gave patients who’d experienced significant hair loss primrose oil to take for seven months, found that the patients had significant hair regrowth by the end. Try mixing evening primrose oil with rosemary essential oil, which has also shown to help with hair loss and increase hair thickness. Combine several drops of each oil with coconut oil and apply to the area of concern daily.
  • Put Hormones in Balance - Thanks to its high levels of omega-6 fatty acids—a healthy fat that’s in short supply from food — evening primrose oil has proven useful in helping balance hormones. For women experiencing symptoms of menopause, evening primrose oil can be used to balance hormones, along with a diet high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids
  • Diminish Acne Breakouts - For teens experiencing skin blemishes, using evening primrose oil both topically and internally might help alleviate symptoms. To use topically on acne, combine one drop of tea tree essential oil, one drop of evening primrose oil, and one drop of patchouli oil with one tablespoon of coconut oil. Additionally, tea tree oil has proven to help reduce acne because of its strong antibacterial properties, while patchouli is great for healthy skin.
  • Ease PMS - If you’re one of the 75 percent of women who suffer from PMS during their childbearing years, you might want to consider taking an evening primrose oil supplement, as it may relieve the agitation associated with this pesky period syndrome. If your PMS seems more severe than your friends, watch for these monthly emotional swings may need treatment. Try combining evening primrose oil with geranium essential oil and using it topically or diffusing and inhaling the oils to experience their benefits. This is a really easy hack to implement, and it will help you relax after an especially difficult or trying day.

Rose Hip Seed Carrier OilAbout Carrier Oils


Carrier oils are a massively important feature of an aromatherapy treatment.

The correct and thoughtful use of carrier oils (also known as base oils, or vegetable oils) in therapeutic massage adds a huge additional dimension to the benefit of the treatment.

Despite this, carrier oils in aromatherapy are sometimes seen simply as the vehicle for the essential oils to be introduced onto the skin. Hence the use of the word 'carrier oil'.

If you want to convince yourself about the benefit for health and well-being that vegetable oils can provide in their own right, try self massage with warm Sesame oil every day for a week before a bath or shower, and see what difference you notice. (This is a daily prescription for good health that is recommended by Maharishi AyurVeda, Ayurveda being the world's oldest system of natural health care, and is said to prevent all manner of ailments, to balance the system, and restore health and vitality.)

Why are Carrier Oils Important?


Vegetable oils are largely composed of fatty acids, which are very important to the body, not only because they are an important source of energy, but also because they are a component in the building and maintenance of healthy cells.

Many vegetable oils contain essential fatty acids (EFAs). These cannot be produced by the body yet they are a requirement for life and health. Deficiency of EFAs can lead to a number of ailments, including dry and flaky skin, and raised cholesterol.

Create your own Carrier Oil Blends Different oils can be suitable for different skin types. Try creating your own vegetable oil blends. For example with wheatgerm, sunflower, sesame and hazelnut; or add 10% of avocado oil to sweet almond to create a carrier oil for dry skin.
