Herb of the Month: Borage

Herb of the Month: Borage

Posted by TriLight Health on Aug 5th 2022

Borage happens to be one of the only sources of true blue found in nature. Most other things that appear blue are technically purple. Bees have an affinity for this beautiful blue flower. Documented use has been found all the way back to Ancient Greece and was once used extensively throughout Europe. When used fresh borage tastes like cucumbers and is often added to salads, soups, and other dishes. Herbalists use it in teas, tinctures, and other preparations.
