Evening primrose - Oenothera biennis

Oenothera biennis


Belonging to the Onagraceae family, this biennial plant bears pale yellow flowers, often sweet-smelling. Each flower blooms for just one day, fading in the evening.


Evening primrose oil has many medicinal properties. As a poultice, it calms wounds and in an infusion it treats coughs. Once used only in China, it has since become widespread in the West.


The seeds are pressed to produce evening primrose oil. Very rich in Omega-6 fatty acids, it strengthens the lipid barrier and boosts the skin’s hydration. It also has anti-aging properties.
