Why evening primrose oil?
Evening Primrose Oil contains a high concentration of the fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid, also called GLA. This fatty acid gives this plant its remarkable healing properties. Studies have shown that evening primrose oil helps to moisturize, rejuvenate and repair skin cells as well as provide relief from skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. Don’t want to use evening primrose oil? You can substitute any carrier oil in it’s place.
What about other substitutions?
In addition, you can easily change the fragrance of this body wash recipe by substituting the rose hydrosol with any other flower hydrosol of your choice. Prefer simply a rose scented body wash? Omit the lavender essential oil. Or use your favorite essential oil in its place! Mix and match your favorite flower hydrosol and essential oil(s) for a fun custom scent.
