Evening Primrose Oil

To help treat inflammatory disorders

Evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) adorns many backyards. It grows extensively throughout North America and is now widely naturalized through much of Europe and parts of Asia. Its name comes from its fragrant yellow flowers, measuring about one inch in diameter, which bloom in the evening..

The plant is harvested at the beginning of the flowering season. Oil is extracted from the tiny dark-gray seeds, which are only one fifteenth of an inch (1.5 millimeter) long. The oil is commercially available in capsule form. Each capsule usually contains about 500 milligram of oil. Up to 12 capsules a day, or a half teaspoon of oil, may be used to treat various conditions.
