Evening Primrose Oil Benefits

Staggering Evening Primrose Oil Benefits

Evening Primrose Oil is a very undervalued oil supplement that leaves many people asking: What is evening primrose oil? What are the benefits of evening primrose oil? How do you take evening primrose oil? 

For a plant that’s simply made with flower seeds, evening primrose oil benefits are staggering! Primrose oil has been known to help with a number of ailments including bruises, digestive problems, and sore throats. In addition, evening primrose oil benefits include antioxidant properties, hormone balancing, and anti-inflammatory effects.

Most other benefits of primrose oil are for skin. It can be used to help with acne, ease eczema, and overall skin health including elasticity, moisture, firmness, and fatigue resistance.

Inducing Labor

A few testimonials even claim that they successfully used evening premrose oil to induce labor. American Family Physician claims that primrose oil may help thin out and soften the cervix. Other studies indicate the linolenic acid in primrose oil may trigger a prostaglandin response in the body to shorten the duration of labor.

Other testimonials claim they use evening primrose oil for hair loss. The medical research is still limited, but there are studies done on primrose oil’s arachidonic acids which have been shown to stimulate hair growth and assist hair shafts to grow longer (1).

How to Use it, and it's History

Evening primrose oil is derived from the seeds of the evening primrose plant, which is a wildflower that is native to North America and was introduced to Europe in the seventeenth century. Primrose oil has been studied primarily for the medicinal effects of the linoleic acid and gamma-linolenic acid that it contains.

There are two main ways to take and apply primrose oil and each have their own respective advantages depending on your intended result.


The easiest way is to take oil capsules orally as directed by the product directions. Different conditions may require varying dosages or ingestion frequencies as indicated by medical research and trials. It is best to consult with your doctor or medical professional for additional information and guidance on this.

Another great way to take evening primrose oil is topically. You can apply the oil directly to an area of choice to help alleviate symptoms such as itchiness and burning sensations. The primrose oil doesn’t have to be diluted for topical use, but many people mix it with a variety of other herbal oils or even their moisturizer!

Terms & Conditions
What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
