Borage seed oil provides high levels of the fatty acids called gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), a strong anti-inflammatory found in certain plant oils.
While gamma-linolenic acid is derived from extracts drawn from the seeds of plants like borage (Borago officinalis) and evening primrose, it’s not found in high amounts in the human diet. Therefore most people turn to supplements to provide its benefits. Borage seed oil can be applied topically or ingested. If taken orally, borage seed oil can help repair cellular activity and keep your internal organs healthy. If used externally, its healing effects are felt more specifically on where it is applied, but it can still be absorbed deep into your skin and into your bloodstream. Borage seed oil is used in aromatherapy. It can be inhaled or vaporized, but can also be used as a carrier oil for more powerful and ultra-concentrated essential oils. It blends well with other thin and easily absorbed oils like jojoba, rosehip, thistle and sweet almond oils. Borage oil is said to have an uplifting and euphoric effect, and may help ease mood swings and depression.
