03 May Celebrating Borage
Borage is such a pretty flower and, even more, it produces a prolific amount of seeds which can be cold pressed to obtain a wonderful GLA (gamma linolenic acid) rich oil that’s perfect for skin care. But what’s equally great is that it’s an amazing plant for bees too, as it’s so full of nectar and flowers all summer long. The oil we use comes from UK oilseed crops and plays a major role in our ever popular Elderberry & Borage face cream. The other name for Borage is Star Flower, because of its shape. It’s certainly one of our favourite stars of nature.
