Evening primrose oil is the oil derived from the seeds of the evening primrose plant. It has a number of popular uses and is widely available in supplement form. In current times, evening primrose is used to help alleviate pain and various skin conditions.
Here are Some Uses of Evening Primrose Oil:
Minimize acne breakouts.
A primary cause for acne is a hormonal imbalance. Evening primrose oil
can help regulate the production of hormones and prevent acne formation. The high amounts of fatty acids in evening primrose may also help dilute sebum, decreasing the risk of pore clogging.
Alleviate symptoms of psoriasis.
Psoriasis is a skin condition that is often characterized by dry, itchy and inflamed skin. The high amount of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) in evening primrose oil can help lessen the inflammation.
Evening primrose oil's anti-inflammatory properties can assist in alleviating rheumatism and other conditions stemming from inflammation.
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.
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 potent level of antioxidants in evening primrose helps to neutralize free radicals, which protect the skin from oxidation in living tissue
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.

I recently had a chance to try the Prime Natural Evening Primrose Oil
and was very pleased with the results! Best of all, it is only $9.99 and get FREE
shipping with Amazon Prime. No coupon code required! So it's affordable.
For my family, we tried the oil for two different needs. First, I used it on my daughter's hair. As you can see in the photos, she has curly hair which requires a pretty strict daily hair routine to keep them looking nice and in order. However, her hair also easily dries out. For the past few days, I have been applied some of the Primrose oil to her hair and have noticed how much it has improved the dryness of it. I use just a small amount as to not make her hair become oily/greasy. Since I do make my own mixture for her hair, I also started adding a few drops to her special hair mixture. When I say it has been making a difference, I mean it.
Next, for me, I have been having some dry feet from the hot weather. It may also go along with the fact I am getting older and my skin seems to get dried out pretty easily these days. I started adding a couple of drops of the Primrose oil on my feet and almost instantly I noticed results and that's from putting VERY little on. I found doing a tiny drop on each foot and rubbing it in before putting on my shoes makes the most difference. Particularly since I wear flip flops everywhere, which is when my feet seem to dry out the most.
For me, based on the two uses we've used the oil for, I find this to be a premium brand that works well. I've noticed no rashes or breakouts from using the oil. It also helps that, according to Prime Natural, all of their essential/carrier oils are GC/MS tested to ensure 100% quality, Detailed analysis reports are posted on their site(under tab GC/MS Reports). This honestly just gives me more of a feeling of confidence when using their brand of Evening Primrose oil. Needless to say, my family and I approve of the Prime Natural Evening Primrose Oil!
