DESCRIPTION

The Borage herb originates from the Middle East and is now widely grown around the world. Borage is easily distinguished by its hairy greyish-green leaves and pinky-blue star shaped flowers. Borage oil is well known as an excellent source of Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA) or Omega 6 and is taken internally for inflammatory skin conditions. The high levels of GLA make Borage oil and excellent addition to any topical treatment for dry, irritated or inflamed skin. It is also reputed to be an excellent oil for conditioning elderly skin.
