Evening Primrose Carrier Oil
Cold Pressed. Evening Primrose Oil is a perfect skincare oil – it is moisturising, softening, and remarkably soothing to very dry or irritated skin conditions. This is due to its substantial levels of linoleic acid and gamma linolenic acid, which are both essential fatty acids that help the body fight the ageing process.
These vitamin-like substances can not be manufactured by the body and are essential for healthy cell function. Most importantly, they are a vital component of the fluid lipid film that coats the skin's surface and controls elasticity, moisture and softness.
This is precisely why Evening Primrose Oil is so valuable if you want to have a clear complexion with a vibrant youthful glow. It contains everything the body needs to fight the aging process and combat dry, red and itchy skin conditions.

Difficult to find.

The essential oil I wanted, Pelargonium capitatum X radens, is not that easy to buy online. I have bought it because it is reputed to keep ticks at bay when a spot is applied to a dog. I was delighted to receive it, and will be using it regularly. Good quick service from Quinessence. Thank you!
Lovely company I found online

Fast service. Have only used the product once at the moment (shampoo and conditioner), but it seems to be very good indeed. Plenty of ingredient information, which is just what I wanted. Would certainly recommend.
