evening primrose oil

Definition: Evening Primrose Oil

Found in North America, Europe and Asia, the flowers of the Evening Primrose open only at night. The plants grow between four and five feet high and have lemon-scented leaves. Most of these four-petal flowers are yellow, but there are some varieties that are pink, red, or purple. The roots and stalks of the Evening Primrose can be used in cooking. Taken orally, Evening Primrose Oil is recommended for everything from menopause to treating acne.

Though it's included as an ingredient in beauty products, often hand and face creams, there is no one overwhelming cosmetic use for Evening Primrose Oil. Aubrey Organics and Ole Henriksen use it in moisturizer, while Korres uses it in an eye cream for dark circles.

Wow I didn't know that Primrose Oil can help with all of those things! I love Korres and all of the cool natural products they carry. Even better, I just found this cool site called Store Adore that offers exclusive discounts with companies such as Korres. And because I love to shop, it makes all this even better because I save while I spend! if you want to check it out here is the URL:

Evening Primrose Oil truly helps me with terrible breast pain I experience just before that time of the month. I take it along with Fish Oil. I combine this all natural cure with exercise and abstaining from caffeine. My first comment and here I am talking about my breasts : )

I know some people who use this oil as a lubricant during child birth.
