How to use:
Borage oil for skin
Massage into affected area daily. Organic Borage oil can be applied topically to the skin. Borage oil has an anti-inflammatory effect and seals in the moisture to the dry and damaged skin. It is also known to provide relief to sufferers from chronic skin disorders, such as eczema and atopic dermatitis.
Borage oil for hair
English grown Borage oil can also be applied on the head if you want to enjoy its curative properties. Using organic Borage oil on the hair can help strengthen the hair follicles, and promote healthy hair growth. Massaging fresh pressed Borage oil onto the hair can also help dandruff and itchy scalp conditions which are common hair related problems.
Applying a Borage hair mask
First, start by wetting your hair in the shower and dry off excess water so the hair is damp. Pour a small amount of Borage oil into the palm of your hand and massage gently all over the scalp. Next, brush your hair and then wrap your hair in a towel (you will have a better effect if the towel is slightly warmed) and leave in the oil for 15 to 20 minutes. After this, you can wash your hair with a light shampoo, and you may not need conditioner as the organic Borage oil will have left your hair much softer and shinier than a conditioner would.
