All vegetable oils and fats are 100% fat and are generally high in calories (on average about 120 calories per tablespoon).
Vegetable oils are often used in food preparation for salad dressings, cooking, frying, baking, sauces and marinades. As a general guide, virgin and unrefined oils have more of the oil’s natural flavour and lend themselves well for use in cold dishes. Refined oils generally have longer shelf lives and may have a higher smoke point and therefore be better for high heat cooking, but this varies depending on the type of oil.
Each oil has its own distinct flavour and nutrient and Fatty Acid composition, so each oil may be used for different purposes depending on your need.
Use as a massage oil base, blend with essential oils for added benefits of your favourite essential oils.
Evening Primrose Oil makes an excellent all over skin moisturiser. Use as a gentle and effective cleanser and make-up remover.
You can use Evening Primrose Oil as a hair treatment. Combine it with Coconut Oil and Rosemary essential oil for a nourishing hair mask. Massage into your scalp and leave it for at least 30 minutes to work its magic. Top tip – washing out oil treatments can be difficult, try lathering the shampoo before adding water to emulsify the oil which will help it rinse out easier.
Use in your homemade skincare formulations such as creams, lotions, serums and balms. Evening Primrose Oil is heat sensitive so remember to add it to your formulations below 40 degrees.
As with any new product always conduct a patch test before first use.
