Organic evening primerose oil
An oil with vital force
Evening primrose oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids. Human metabolism requires fats for its optimal functioning. Therefore, the health-conscious may take care of their bodies internally by consuming natural and cold-pressed organic oils. Evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) is a wild, herbaceous, perennial herb. It owes its name to the fact that it only opens its flowers in the evening to attract moths and insects with its scent to be pollinated. The flowers only last until the following noon, but a new flower opens every evening. Blooming lasts from June till August. Originally from North America, evening primrose was shipped to Europe on merchant ships about 350 years ago. But it was only later that its positive effects on the human body and its medicinal uses were documented. The oil extracted from the seeds of the plant is very valuable, but since its seeds are very small, the production of the oil is very expensive. Pödör only uses organically grown evening primrose seeds to offer its customers high quality organic evening primrose oil. The oil is made strictly by cold pressing, so that all the valuable fatty acids, flavors, aromas and colors are retained.
HOW TO USE
Evening primrose oil has a characteristic, astringent taste. It can be consumed on its own with a spoon, as it contributes to a balanced diet. But it can also be used in salad dressings, smoothies, vegetable juices or sauces.
Evening primrose oil has many good properties. It is recommended for all skin types, but it’s especially beneficial for mature and dry skin. The oil can be applied directly to clean, moist skin, but it can also be mixed into creams. The oil regulates cell metabolism, counteracting skin moisture loss, thus restoring skin elasticity.
We recommend that the oil only be used at room temperature, never heat it above 194 °F, otherwise the valuable components in it will be destroyed.
