מצוין!I purchased the oil for application on the skin in areas where the skin is loose and with stretch marks. It greatly helps the elasticity of the skin. Should be used in a small amount and it is even desirable to blend with additional oils and also with essential oils.
I used this for cervical massages in the weeks leading up to delivery. I don’t think it stimulated early contractions for me as I had a natural birth at 42 weeks. It was a quick, relatively easy delivery with no tearing or damage! The EPO definitely served its purpose and the size was perfect for my intended use. Quality product.
This is excellent for skin when going through hormonal skin changes. Also if you have breast/muscle/joint pain due to hormones during menstruation, this is perfect! That is mainly what made me start using it. I was having breast pain and shoulder aches during/before my menstrual and decided to give it a try. It definitely did the job, plus I was taking the oral capsules. The scent is ok, a bit strong, but it grows on you. Kinda wish it came in a bigger bottle.
This is lovely oil. Great quality, and very nourishing - a little goes a long way. I am planning to use it in a recipe of under-eye serum, mixed with vanilla-infused jojoba oil, rosehip seed oil, rose otto essential oil, roman chamomile essential oil, and helichrysum essential oil. Yes, there is a slightly strange smell when used alone, but it doesn't bother me, especially because I will be mixing it with other oils. It is very good for the delicate under eye skin, which is why I chose to use some in this recipe.
I have been taking this oil internally for over one year, it is a very good alternative to taking the expensive capsules. Because of its gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) contents, Evening Primrose oil can support joint discomfort as well as skin health challenges. It also has benefits for normal hormone production and hormone balance. I believe it is helping both my skin and my joints and has helped to minimize symptoms when I went through menopause. I find the smell fairly neutral, a lot less challenging to swallow than olive oil for example. I take it mixed with fruit juice.
the scent was playing I used it for prepping for labor the quality is awesome which the size was bigger the packaging I wish was glass that would have been great and very beneficial the composition is awesome the essential oils is nice it's great because if I was using it on a sensitive area that area was moisturize and nourished
I like that this 100% Pure Evening Primrose Oil (EPO), which is a natural vegetable oil, is used for a variety of skin concerns. It helps the elasticity of the skin and can support joint discomfort as well as skin health challenges. Although it is non comedogenic it should be used in a small amount. EPO is also and anti-inflammatory and helps reduce blood cholesterol and the the GLA in EPO has the potential to reduce rheumatoid arthritis pain without causing unwanted side effects.
I like the NOW Brand, but not sure I like this oil. It is supposed to be 100% Evening Primrose Oil, but the scent is a bit on the rancid side IMO; even though the Best Buy date is way out. EPO is supposed to be very nourishing to skin, and I have even tried it on my hair. The consistency is good - not too runny and not too thick. I probably will not order again though.
