Yes, but for what?: These are safe nutritional supplements, evening primrose oil is a good supplement with medically verified uses. The agnus castus is more controversial:clinical studies have demonstrated effectivness of standardised and controlled medications produced from extract of the plant in the management of premenstrual stress syndrome (pms), and cyclical breast pain (mastalgia). The herb is used in germany.

Can you take passionflower and evening primrose oil together?

Not wise: Both passion flower and evening primrose oil contain chemicals that may reduce the blood's ability to form clots. When taken together, they can increase the risk of dangerous bleeding.
