Did you know.....Evening Primrose is an American herb that was brought to England in the 17th Century. It was once called "King's Cure-All".
Evening Primrose has a long history as a wild edible plant and has served as food and medicine for Native Americans and Europeans. The Cherokee drank it as a tea for a slimming tonic and used the hot root externally as a hemorrhoid remedy. Many others used it for pain relief and asthma.
The oil from this plant is high in "GLA", an Essential Fatty Acid, also know as Omega 6, necessary for many important body functions. The polyunsaturated (good) EFA has been used for centuries to help fight depression and other emotional imbalances.
Studies have shown that Evening Primrose Oil can help with cholesterol and blood pressure, and has anti-inflammatory properties. Its has also been used to help with premenstrual and menopausal issues such as irritability, headaches, breast tenderness, bloating, anxiety, and possibly even hot flashes.
This herb is an old-time remedy for infantile eczema (cradle cap). Tests have shown improvement in people with eczema after using Evening Primrose.
As a flower essence, it deals with the soul's first impressions of life on earth. When it is most open, while in utero or in very early infancy, receiving and reflecting the soul light of the parents. These early experiences are as formative for emotional development as proper nutrition is for the physical fetus. If the soul feels neglected or abused, there is a deep feeling of pain and rejection. Evening Primrose provides a matrix of emotional nutrients that were lacking in those earliest experiences.
