This includes the roots, leaves, blossoms, flower buds and seeds. Traditionally used the whole plant and especially the leaves were boiled to tea by Native American tribes as a stimulant to treat laziness. The tribes also used the roots externally to treat piles and boils. Additionally, they were chewed and rubbed onto the muscles to improve strength. Rich in omega-6 essential fatty acids, evening primrose oil can also be made from this plant.
