Borage seed oil is the fixed oil obtained from the seeds of Borago officinalis, a blue-flowered European annual herb. The soothing, cooling, mucilaginous substances in borage account for many of its medicinal effects. The herb is known to be rich in gamma linolenic acid, minerals and Omega-6 EFA all of which help to maintain healthy cardiovascular function, as well as healthy skin and nails. Borage is classified as an emollient and cleanser.
