Origins & Properties
Borage is a beautiful flowering plant that grows in the wild in the Mediterranean. It is cultivated and used widely throughout Europe for its healing properties and for a nice addition to a salad.
Borage is also cultivated in the US, where it is more popular as an herbal supplement rather than a food product.
