The treasure of the Onagra in Spain
10 December 2019 @ 01:46

      Today I would like to tell you about a wild plant, with yellow flowers, which is called "Onagra" and grows on the coasts of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea.

      The horticulturist, Jose Manuel Sánchez, explains us the properties of this plant.

      The first thing we have to do is to see if the seed capsules can be opened.

      Jose Manuel says that maybe you do not know the Evening Primrose, but maybe you have heard about Evening Primrose Oil, which has many health benefits, especially for women  --for menstruation, for menopause for circulation, for the skin and many more-- .

      All that comes out of this wonderful plant, which has beautiful flowers and they smell very good. But what interests us is to remove the seeds from the capsules. The capsules dry out as Autumn progresses. When the capsules are dry, we take out the seeds; but we had to open many capsules, to get enough seeds and thus to make enough evening primrose oil or evening primrose infusion.

      Well, I hope that you will like to know this information about the Onagra.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.
