Borage Carrier Oil

Borage Carrier Oil

Cold Pressed. Borage Oil is one of the richest sources of gamma linolenic acid (GLA) containing up to 25% - which is more than twice the amount found in evening primrose oil. Clinical trials have shown that GLA helps to encourage healthy, mobile joints, and in skin care it provides excellent moisturising and revitalizing properties.

Its regenerative qualities can be used to fight the loss of skin elasticity as well as tone and revitalize tired, dull, dry complexions. When used regularly, Borage Oil greatly improves the general condition of the skin helping to improve its texture and softness, which makes it an ideal overnight facial treatment.

Borage Oil is quite rich, so add 15% to 20% of Borage Oil to another lighter textured carrier oil such as sweet almond or peach kernel to make it easier to work with in massage. For intensive night-time skin care treatments use it undiluted, so that your skin gets all of the nourishment and regenerative power from this great oil.

A great find

I was recommended Quinessence by a friend who used to use them predominantly, for all things aromatherapy while she was a practising, successful aromatherapist. I have found that their fine quality products are well presented, safely packaged and arrived rapidly. I'm thoroughly happy to pass on the recommendation. Quinessence was one of the first companies to be put on the Favourites list of my new laptop.

Good that postage was included in the price, and love the anti animal testing policy. Wish that VAT wasn't added in on the end.
