PNW Native Plant: Evening Primrose

The diverse landscapes of Washington, Oregon and California provide an excellent array of wildflowers that love the Pacific Northwest.  Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) is a native that was once cultivated for its delectable roots. It was an important source of food and medicine for Native Americans, but is now often grown for its omega-6 containing seeds. 

In the native garden Oenotherais grown for its beauty.  It presents four-petal, goblet-like flowers in yellow, white, or pink. Evening primrose is named for its habit of only showing its elegant flowers late in the day.

 

 

The evening primrose oil we use in our formulation is organic, cold pressed and derived from non-genetically modified plants. It is paraben, phthalate and solvent free and a good source of gamma linolenic fatty acids, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging by restoring elasticity to skin. 

Our Evening Primrose Oil Soap is wonderfully conditioning and softening for the skin. Our luxurious body oil made with Evening Primrose Oil is easily absorbed by skin and promotes healthy, moisture-rich skin.

 

Wishing you love and beautifully soft skin,
