Evening Primrose Oil (EPO), is extracted from the seeds of Oenothera biennis which is not actually a member of the Primrose family but is part of the Willow herb family. The plant acquired the primrose name because its bright yellow flowers resemble primrose flowers and its flowers open in the evening hence its current name. The plant has a two year cycle and it is during the second year that the flowers appear from which seeds are eventually harvested. The origins of the plant were in North America from where it came to the UK by accident when cargo ships bringing cotton over, dumped the soil brought back as ballast, and seeds began to grow. The plant was officially introduced in 1614 into Europe and rapidly became known as ‚ÄúKing‚Äôs Cure All‚Äù because of its useful medicinal properties. EPO was not examined closely however until 1919 when the gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) content was reported in Germany and consequently its effect on cell generation and cholesterol levels were soon monitored. This led eventually to experiments which have given us the depth of knowledge that we have about this product today.
