How is "evening primrose oil" different from "evening primrose" - leaves, stem, flowers, seed oil and bark?
There is a separate listing for "evening primrose oil" which does some of the same things as the leaves/flowers/bark, but they are not the same.
Is it possible to treat using the wrong leaves/flower vs the oil?
Perhaps I am confused.
