Evening primrose oil, 10% GLA
descriptionNOTE: Large quantities/sizes of any product may have to be special ordered. If that's the case, customers must allow a minimum of 10 business days for a new supply to arrive at our warehouse. Some products could arrive sooner, some later. Cancellations are not allowed because an item becomes 'out of stock' soon after the customer places the order, the 'out of stock' product will ship as soon as it arrives at our warehouse. What do we consider large quantities/sizes of our products? Some examples are products classified as bulk or that include the word 'bulk' in the product's name, products offered in 5+ lbs., expensive EO's offered in 1+ lb. and certain quantities of packaging materials. If it's important for you to know before placing an order if a certain quantity's in stock, please email email@example.com and inquire before placing the order. The nature of our business is such that what is in stock in the morning may not be in stock in the afternoon. All products are subject to prior sale.
NOTE: If we unexpectedly encounter a problem with the packaging material used to pack the product you ordered (defective/missing part or delivery to us delayed for any reason including road/weather conditions or the manufacturer has a manufacturing delay, etc.) we cannot ship until the correct packaging part/material is delivered to us. Please understand this and do not place an order if this paragraph presents a problem for you. In 20 years in business we've only had one instance where delivery to us of empty 35 lb. pails/lids was delayed a couple of days. (Rev. 6/19/18)
Evening Primrose Oil, 10% GLA content, wildcrafted, refined (Oenothera biennis): This is a pale yellow oil with a nutty aroma, solvents are not used in its extraction.
Evening Primrose’s healing action results from its high content of gamma linolenic acid (9% GLA), an essential fatty acid that is vital to cell and body functions and not produced by the body itself. Its pale yellow color may vary based on growing conditions and batch. This oil is extremely helpful in treating, menstrual and pre-menstrual problems, eczema and psoriasis, dry skin, useful in treating allergic skin problems. Add up to 10% of the carrier oil for massage and to any creams and lotions.
This oil tends to go rancid quickly and should be stored in a cool place or refrigerated. In soapmaking, a little goes a long way; add 1-2/3 tablespoons per 5 lbs. of soap just before adding the essential oils. In lotions/creams use 2%-5%. SAP value: 191.0. Shelf life: 6 months to 1 year when stored tightly capped in a cool place, away from light and direct heat, refrigeration is OK for this oil. INCI: Oenothera Biennis.

King of Eye Serums
What a great ingredient to use as an eye serum!! This primrose oil is packed with anti-aging properties. Add a few drops of primrose oil to an ounce of grape seed oil and gently pat into the skin under your eyes. This will diminish those unsightly circles, tricking your boss into thinking you went to bed promptly at 9pm.

Anti-aging & Exema super star Oil
I have been using this oil in combination with other oils in m my anti-aging oils, as well as my problem skin care cream. My customers rave about both products. They keep begging for more. The properties are like medicine to the skin. Getting ready to re-order right now

I LOVE This oil!
Its about time to reorder supplies and E. Primrose is one I will not be without. So moisturizing and soothing to the skin. Added to formulas for the elderly, they rant and rave about products they try with this oil in it. Use it while you are young, and I'll bet wrinkles will stay away!

great body butter
Evening primrose oil and macadamia oil and butters from camden-grey make a great body butter that's not too greasy.
OUT OF STOCK ISSUES: If a customer orders a large quantity of a product and all of the product is not in stock when the order is entered into our system, once the new stock arrives we will ship separately whatever quantity we may owe the customer. Most of our restocking orders arrive at our warehouse 5-7 business days after we place a restocking order, sometimes sooner. Should the distiller or vendor inform us restocking will take longer than 7 business days, we’ll promptly notify the customer.
Please note that we do not allow order cancellations for any reason and we don’t allow removal/cancellations of products which become partially or completely out of stock after the customer places an order.
