BORAGE

Leave a comment

Borage (Borago officinalis) is a great short-term adrenal restorative if you’re going through a stressful time.  Almost all parts of this plant are useful, the leaves have a strangely tasty mild cucumber flavour, the seeds are a rich source of gamma-linolenic acid, an omega 6 oil and the beautiful star-shaped flowers look amazing in ice cubes in drinks.
