Evening Primrose is thought to have originated in Central America and Mexico and spread throughout the world via cargo ships going to and from the Americas. Indigo Herbs has acquired a premium quality Evening Primrose Oil to be mixed with a carrier oil or cream that can be used to relieve dry skin. Traditionally it has also been used by women during menopause. We are sure you’ll agree that this oil is of the best quality and is excellent for skin.

It is thought that Native American Indians used the Evening Primrose as a source of food. Usually the roots would be boiled down and would contribute a nutty flavour to stews. Hunters also used Evening Primrose as a means of stealth to mask their smell from prey. They would rub the soles of their moccasins with the leaves so they could get closer to the animal they were trying to hunt. As a medicine, the whole plant was used as a poultice to treat bruises and haemorrhoids.

When European settlers arrived in the Americas the plant was eventually taken back to Europe where it spread as a wild flower. In Germany the plant was known as ‘nachtkerz’ or ‘night candle’ accounting for the flowers of the Evening Primrose only opening at night. The plant was first used in botany in 1587 and appeared in P. Millers Gardeners Dictionary in 1754. In 17th Century England Evening Primrose was called ‘Kings Cure-all’ and was known as an all-round panacea.

Interestingly Evening Primrose was also thought to be a cure for over consumption of alcohol but would also make you want to drink more. This can be seen in the official Latin name – Oenothera – meaning; ‘oinos’ – wine, and, ‘ther’ – wild animal. The roots were thought to be able to tame wild animals and so were likened to wine for beasts of the wild.

Evening Primrose is a biennial plant that grows on the banks of rivers in sandy soil. The stems are straight growing and erect and have soft hairs growing all over the plant. The flowers are yellow and open only in the evening; they then wither and die the next day. The leaves are narrow and have many short hairs covering them.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at affecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Simple pour a little oil into the palm of the hand and rub across the body in long massage strokes. Do not go out in direct sunlight after an aromatherapy massage. Allow 12 hours for the oils to fully absorb before washing the skin.  

Take 1 teaspoon of the oil daily.

  • All ingredients produced to GMP standards.
  • Quality Assured by Indigo Herbs.
  • Bottled in a pharmacoepial grade brown glass bottle.

Manufacture Process

Evening Primrose oil is pure and cold pressed. The cold pressing process ensures that the oil does not reach a temperature where the original form of the oil changes. Heat transforms the molecular composition of most oils and so it is important to keep these intact to keep all the natural benefits of this oil. This Evening Primrose Oil is manufactured in the UK and adheres to GMP standards and is quality assured by Indigo Herbs. Contains 0.5% Vitamin E as a perservative
