Primrose oil can be applied straight onto the skin or can be used as a carrier oil for other, more potent oils.
Hair: Massage the oil into your scalp and deep into your hair. Let the oil sit on your hair for up to 30 minutes. You could even mix a few drops into your favorite shampoo or conditioner.
Body: You can use it topically in its pure form or add a few drops to your lotion or cream. Ideally, use it with a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
Face: You can even use Primrose oil in place of your usual moisturizer or add a couple of drops to your moisturizer for added benefits.
