Borage / Starflower Products
Starflower is a pretty flowering herb that is also known as "Borage" or "Bee Plant" because its vibrant blue/purple star shaped flower attract the bees throughout the summer. It is native to the Mediterranean, Asia Minor and the wild highlands of Eastern Europe where it has been cultivated for thousands of years for its culinary and medicinal uses.
The oil (known as Borage or Starflower oil) is commonly extracted from the seeds, and is rich in the essential fatty acid γ-linolenic acid (GLA). Linolenic acid is an omega-6 fatty acid that plays a vital role in the restoration of joint health, immunity and healthy skin. This is an incredibly popular supplement for women due to its role as a hormone regulator, which may benefit conditions such as PMS and the menopause.
