Evening Primrose (Onenothera hookeri)

This essence deals with problems of emotional imbalance resulting from one of two polarities, either rejection and abandonment issues in early childhood, particularly relating to lack of bonding with the mother, or from situations where the child was not allowed to develop according to its own needs, where independence was discouraged and the parent, often the mother, sought a co-dependent relationship with the child, possibly using the child to establish her own sense of self-esteem and fulfil her ambitions. In either of these circumstances, it is not possible for healthy emotional development to take place.

Evening Primrose

This essence is of assistance in healing the resultant emotional deprivation which may result in fear of commitment, for fear of abandonment, or fear of being consumed by another. When this fear is the emotional root underlying sexual repression or fear of parenthood, this essence is indicated.
