Borage, commonly called "starflower", is a well known herb which is indigenous to North Europe, North Africa and Asia Minor but can be found in almost all temperate regions of the world. The plant grows to be 18" to 36" high and spreads 12" to 20" wide. The leaves are straggly and messy and are bright blue star shaped flowers. Borage is commercially grown for the very valuable oil found in its seeds.
Borage Seed Oil is one of nature's most plentiful sources of GLA (gamma linolenic acid), a critical omega-3 fatty acid, and typically contains a higher percentage of GLA than evening primrose oil or black currant seed oil. Borage seed oil also contains other important fatty acids such as linoleic acid, oleic acid, and palmitic acid. Borage Seed Oil is harvested from the seed by a process known as cold pressing. No solvents have been used.
