Also known as the evening star, king's cure-all and the sun drop, the evening primrose is a flowering bi-annual plant that produces vivid yellow blooms that open during the evening. The beautiful petals are phosphorescent and can emit a very subtle glow at night.

Evening primrose seeds are an exceptionally rich source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), an Omega-6 fatty acid. Containing 68.0-76.0% Linoleic Acid, an Omega-6 essential fatty acid, and a minimum of 9% GLA, our Evening Primrose Oil is an exceptionally nutritive, unsaturated lipid that is highly sought after in beauty, cosmetic and personal care applications.

After meticulously collecting the tiny, premium quality seeds, our Evening Primrose Oil is then carefully pressed and fully refined. From seed collection and manufacturing to storage and shipment, great care is used at every stage to maintain the purity, freshness and beneficial properties of this nutritive, pressed oil.

Customer Testimonial

"I'm fourteen, and want to start making natural health and beauty products at home for myself. I predict that when I'm older I will go into a business in this area because of your site. The information offered on your site has been amazing to a beginner like me. The range of products is amazing. Yours is the first place I have actually found Rhassoul clay. I've been searching for ages as the stuff works wonders on my face. There's so many other examples of the products like this , but too many to list. It's mind-boggling to think of how long I've been searching, and here you've got it all. Finally, I want to comment on your customer service. It's excellent. You give information and one thing that stood out to me is if there is a negative comment, you try to find out why and comment on that. I love how it's a personalized message that shows you've shown effort to make your customers happier. Overall, your site has wowed me so much I felt the need to send you this email, commenting on it. I haven't yet placed the order due to financial changes I've been making lately, but I can assure you, I will be soon :)"
