Evening primrose oil became a popular supplement for women in the 1990’s. It was often prescribed to help with hormonal balance and skin health.
Evening Primrose Oil is still considered to be a good oil for skincare. We include it in the Bestow Beauty Plus Oil for this reason. However, I don’t recommend taking it on its own for two reasons.
Firstly, it’s most commonly available in capsules and I’m not a believer in taking oil in capsules. It may be convenient but it isn’t very effective. Capsules are quite small so you don’t get a lot of oil from them and because you can’t emulsify them into food, they are harder than liquid oil for your body to digest and absorb.
Secondly, evening primrose oil is rich in the omega 6 fatty acid family but doesn’t contain any omega 3. This means it only provides half the fats needed for health.
So to provide the complete solution, we use it in Bestow Beauty Plus Oil but blend it with other oils to provide a wider range of fats. This ensures we not only promote beautiful, glowing skin but support your general health and wellbeing as well.
