Tales from Nature

Enotera Biennis, also called Onagra belongs to a plant with large, fragrant yellow flowers arranged in the shape of a spike. It seems that its name comes from the union of the Greek words, "oinos" or "wine" and "thèra" or "desire," which could mean "desire to drink wine." It prefers moist environments such as embankments, beaches and riverbanks. The characteristic of these flowers is that they bloom in the evening, hence the popular name "evening beauty."

This plant is rich in unsaturated fatty acids in the seeds that can protect the cell membrane, delaying tissue aging. Cultivated by Native Americans, its root was used as an anti-inflammatory to treat swelling on the body.

It then spread to Europe in the 17th century, where it was widely used as a medicinal plant, to the point of acquiring the reputation of "the King's cure-all."


Biennis Evening Primrose Essential Oil, is a real panacea for the skin, recommended for erythema, eczema, sunburn or other similar problems. 

Thanks to its antioxidant properties, it is also an excellent anti-wrinkle, with a powerful emollient and moisturizing effect. This is why it is found as an active ingredient within many sunscreen products. It is also useful in treating dry skin because the omega-6 it contains has the characteristic of retaining moisture in the skin.

It is also very effective on damaged, extremely dry and highly porous hair.
