So, what is common evening primrose?

Common evening primrose, also known as Oenothera biennis, is a versatile and nutritious plant that belongs to the primrose family. Native to North America, it has been used for centuries by Native Americans for its medicinal properties. The oil extracted from its seeds contains high levels of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an essential omega-6 fatty acid that has been linked to a range of health benefits, from reducing inflammation and improving skin health to supporting hormonal balance. With its nutty flavor and rich texture, common evening primrose can be used in a variety of recipes, from salads and soups to baked goods and smoothies.
