Evening primrose oil is pressed from the seeds of the evening primrose plant. The yellow flowers only open in the evening, hence their common name. Evening primrose is a common wildflower found in North America, Europe, and parts of Asia.
This plant was used by Native Americans and early settlers as a nutritional support and to treat against conditions such as sore throats, stomach aches, hemorrhoids, and bruises.
Evening primrose has also been used medicinally in Europe since the 17th century.
