Evening Primrose Oil
The evening primrose plant opens in the evening, and emits a precious healing oil. This oil contains essential gamma linolenic acids that promote healing and anti-inflammatory actions within the body and skin. Gamma Linolenic acids also help to naturally promote weight loss. Evening primrose oil can be taken internally or applied externally for beautiful skin results. This healing oil decreases skin inflammation, stress hormone production, sebum production, and acne formation. Evening primrose has been found to relieve many inflammations within the body, including skin disorders such as acne, rosacea, eczema, and lupus. Evening primrose oil calms PMS symptoms, menopause, fibrocystic breast pain, infertility, arthritis, and tooth pain. Evening primrose also reverses the effects of aging, and moisturizes the skin and hair.

Although berries may be classified as a fruit, I consider them to be a healing herb as well. Berries contain disease fighting antioxidants, vitamin C and phylochemicals that prevent cancer and heart disease. Berries also help to lower cholesterol levels, and contribute to overall good health. Berries are the most healing when they are eaten in their raw form, before any type of processing takes place.
Plants contain phylochemicals, which are natural chemicals that act as antioxidants and prevent disease. Plant based medicines also contain many important phylochemicals, as well as vitamins and minerals that heal the body. A good example is Aloe Vera. Aloe taken internally strengthens the immune system and heals stomach ailments. When aloe is applied externally to the surface of the skin, this nourishing plant extract naturally hydrates, increases collagen production, and repairs sun damaged skin. Aloe is a natural healer to the human body. It has been used for centuries to develop good health.
