50ml Borage Carrier Oil
The Borage plant, also known as the Starflower, is a bristly plant originating from the Middle East. Now the plant is cultivated in most warmer parts of the world, including Africa, Asia Southern Europe and South America.
Borage Oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant. It has one of the richest sources of essential fatty acids known - up to 25% which is more than twice the amount found in evening primrose oil.
As Borage Oil is quite rich, for massage it is better to add between 15% to 20% to another light oil such as sweet almond or peach to make it easier to work with.
