Borage - Borago officinalis

Borago officinalis

Description:

Borage is an annual herbaceous plant of the Boraginaceae family. The plant reaches a height of 20 to 60 cm and is covered with stiff white hairs. It originated in the western Mediterranean regions.

Traditions:

The ancient Greeks already used borage as a spice in their food. Its leaves can be eaten raw in salad as a vegetable. It is included in many popular pharmacopoeias, in particular due to its healing and anticoagulant properties.

Properties:

Borage oil, extracted from the seeds, is very rich in Omega-6 fatty acid. It repairs the hydrolipid film for softer, more elastic and more comfortable skin. The skin’s freshness and youthfulness are thus preserved.
