Description

This borage oil is extracted from the seeds of the Borago officinalis plant. It has a high concentration of gamma-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid that is said to moisturize and promote healthy skin. It is also believed to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects for the skin. It also contains tannic acid, as well as palmetic and oleic acids.

The oil has a light green to light yellow color. It is more expensive than other vegetable oils used for massage. However, you can mix a small amount of borage oil into a less expensive vegetable oil, such as sweet almond oil. In this way you get the skin loving benefits of the oil while also saving money over using the oil by itself.

Safety– Borage oil should not be used by women who are pregnant. People with liver disorders and blood clotting disorders should avoid borage seed oil. You should discontinue use at least 2 weeks prior to surgery, including oral surgery, due to the risk of excess bleeding.

Some of my favorite essential oils to use with this carrier oil are Lavender and Ylang-Ylang.
