Evening Primrose Oil (Fixed Oil)

Evening Primrose Oil has an oily bland odour, usually with a slight fatty almost rancid note. It is used in massage oil bases and cosmetics for moisturising and as an emollient . We recommend to include an antioxidant such as Rosemary Extract @ 0.1-1.0% to slow down rancidity.
