Exceptional Evening Primrose Carrier Oil offered as a rare supercritical extract obtained from the seeds of the wild Evening Primrose plant which exudes lovely lipids to be cherished by thirsty skin. This wildflower has been used by Native Americans and Europeans for centuries where seeds were pressed for oils and soaked in warm water and made into poultices.

"Oh, you mysterious girls, when you are fifty-two we shall find you out; you must come into the open then. If the mouth has fallen sourly yours the blame: all the meanness your youth concealed have been gathering in your face. But the pretty thoughts and sweet ways and dear, forgotten kindnesses linger there also, to bloom in your twilight like evening primroses."
~ J.M. Barrie
