Description: Evening primrose oil is extracted from the seed of a biennial plant native to North America which is now cultivated in most temperate regions of the world. The plant reaches a height of 30-150cm. The leaves are alternate, sometimes opposite or whorled, simple, entire and lanceolate in shape with serrated margins, 5-20cm in length and olive green in colour. The hermaphrodite 4-petaled flowers form spikes and are bright yellow in colour, 2.5-5cm in diameter with 8 stamens. The fruit is a seed capsule approximately 2-4cm in length which contains many seeds each 1-2mm in length.

Interesting Fact: Did you know that in a study of 60 people with eczema, Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) – the essential fatty acid contained in evening primrose oil which accounts for its therapeutic benefits – was found to be superior to a placebo in reducing the itching and oozing of eczematous skin conditions?  Those in the GLA group took 274mg twice a day (an amount found in approximately seven 1000mg evening primrose capsules) for 12 weeks.  Examinations by a dermatologist every four weeks confirmed the gradual improvement of symptoms reported by these patients.
