Carrier oils are vegetable oils derived from the fatty portion of a plant, usually from the seeds, kernels or the nuts. Mix the carrier oil with essential oils, or use alone. Carrier oils are used to dilute essential and other oils prior to topical application.
Evening primrose oil is obtained from the seeds of the evening primrose. Evening primrose is a plant native to North America, but it grows in Europe and parts of the Southern hemisphere as well. It has yellow flowers that bloom in the evening. Evening primrose oil contains the fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). Native Americans used the whole plant for bruises and its roots for hemorrhoids. The leaves were traditionally used for minor wounds, gastrointestinal complaints, and sore throats.
Uses: eczema (a condition involving red, swollen, itchy skin, sometimes caused by allergies), rheumatoid arthritis, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), breast pain, menopause symptoms, and other conditions.
