Where is it from?
The borage plant is commonly known as the starflower. These bright blue wildflowers can be found world-wide.
How is it made?
The oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the starflower. Cold pressing assures that the oil’s nutrients and the antioxidants remain undamaged. The process involves crushing and grinding the seeds under a traditional mill stone or in stainless steel equipment and capturing the resulting oil. While the process does create some heat, the processing temperature cannot rise above 120 degrees F.
