As a certified herbalist, coach, nutritionist, I have been studying the uses of primrose oil and currenlty use it as a source for rich fatty acids and maintaining good blood cell circulation. Clients and friends also maybe familar with this common botanical as I commonly recomend it for auto-immune, menstrual iregularity and heart health.
