Calendula is also recognised as an effective astringent and therefore has a tightening effect on the skin.
- EVENING PRIMROSE
is a plant native to North America but it grows in Europe and parts of the Southern hemisphere as well. It has yellow flowers that bloom in the evening. It was used by the North American Indian medicine men to make an infusion for healing wounds, gastrointestinal complaints and sore throats.
Where evening primrose oil is pressed from the seeds of Oenothera biennis, it is important to note that it is an exceptionally fine textured oil which is easily absorbed, with high levels of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) and also antioxidant Phytosterols.

HISTORY OF EVENING PRIMROSE OIL USAGE
Europe: Known to be regal and noble enough for Kings and Queen’s to use in medicinal applications, Evening Primrose is famously referred to as the ‘King’s Cure-All.’ Historically, in Europe, various parts of the Evening Primrose botanical – such as its seeds, fresh flowers, leaves, and roots – as well as its essential fatty acid were used in medicinal applications to address symptoms of acne, asthma, diabetes, eczema, fatigue, loss of libido and impotence, menstruation and menopause, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, poor memory, and rheumatism.
Asia: In Ayurveda and traditional Chinese medicine, the plant’s and its oil’s therapeutic properties were revered and used to regulate and address issues associated with circulation, inflammation, the female reproductive system and the respiratory and nervous systems.
America: Among various Native American groups and in communities of early settlers, the plant’s various parts were used to make infusions, poultices, and topical pastes intended to address wounds. For some tribes, the plant’s roots even made up part of their staple diet. Its benefits were also used to support nutrition and nourishment as well as to soothe discomforts such as sore throats, stomach aches, gastrointestinal problems, and hemorrhoids.
Since the 17th century, Evening Primrose Oil has gained popularity for its remedial activity and has been used in Europe since then for medicinal purposes. (Source NDA 14 May 2018).

As a sufferer of exezma from time to time, and also of very agitated, itchy skin, this cream is like a wonder balm! As soon as any dryness or itching starts, I apply this, and it instantly soothes. Due to sensitive skin, I usually have to be very careful with what I use, as most creams often cause further irritation; however, this wonder cream is truly that - a wonder! Add to that the luxurious feel it has, and that you get on application, in my opinion, it really is an award winner. Thank you Gerlinde Naturals! ❤️

When I tried Gerlinde's Organic Whipped Shea Butter face and body cream, it just melted right into my skin with pure hydration. I used it on my face, arms, hands, legs and feet, and watched the effects of the creepy crepy skin vanish on my thighs, inner forearms, and under the upper arm area. My face appeared more luminous and hydrated. Also, I added a little grapeseed and Black castor oil with it for more intensity. I love all of Gerlinde's face and body products and appreciate that she only uses ingredients that are known antioxidants and skin transformers.
I also want to add that a package from Gerlinde is so lovely and charming. You are going to love it!!! She packages her skin care products beautifully, with a sweet "lil" note to let you know how much she appreciates you as a customer. She sincerely cares about her customers and elaborates her skin line ongoing, so women and men can enjoy using her products and smile at the results. Thank you Gerlinde for your amazing skin care !!!! I absolutely LOVE it. !!!!!!!

Thank-you so much for the shea butter cream, I am delighted with it, it is so nourishing and kind to the skin. I will definitely be buying the larger jar once this is finished!
Also, I have been using the revive elixir on my hands at night, and find it very softening, with a delightful fragrance.

This is my first purchase of the shea butter formula after trying the samples which Gerlinde kindly sent. The cream is extremely soft, luxurious and smooth on the skin and also smells extremely lovely. It sinks into the skin amazingly and moisturises for a very long time. This has helped reduce my flaky skin around my nose which spread as a result of some sort of allergic reaction/dermatitis. It is extremely versatile for many skin issues. Great product!"
