I love borage for skincare. Borage is a very good cleaner, and it's very good for the skin. It's high in omega-6. And omega-6 is really good for psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis as well. And it's a fatty acid, basically, an essential fat. And now, what you can do is you can get a whole heap of the borage flowers and you can make a tea. All you need is a nice little cup of hot water, and nice handful of flowers. And you can steep it in the hot water and strain it, cool it. And you can put it into a little mister for your face, to clean your face, or you can use it warm and clean your face, like a toner a DIY face cleaner. The Miraculous Borage: Crafting a Potent Borage Alcohol Tincture I will take you on a step-by-step journey to create a potent borage alcohol tincture. Let's unlock the power of this remarkable herb and discover how it can enhance your well-being.

Step 1: Harvesting and Preparing Borage Leaves & flowers. I begin by selecting fresh borage leaves & flowers from our regeneratively grown certified organic herb garden. Choose vibrant, healthy, and free from any damage or pests. Harvesting early in the morning when their essential oils are at their peak.

Step 2: Infusing Borage Leaves in Alcohol Place the prepared borage leaves in a clean glass jar, ensuring that it is filled all of the way. Pour high-quality alcohol, such as vodka, into the jar, covering the borage leaves completely. The alcohol acts as a solvent, extracting the beneficial compounds from the herb.

Step 3: Seal and Store Tightly seal the jar to prevent any air or moisture from entering. Place the jar in a cool, dark place, such as a pantry or cupboard, where it can steep. This allows sufficient time for the alcohol to extract the medicinal properties of the borage leaves. Don't forget to label it! During this period, gently shake the jar once a day to ensure the thorough distribution of the herbal essence within the alcohol.

Step 4: Straining and Storing the Tincture After the steeping period, strain the liquid through a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth to separate the infused tincture from the borage leaves. Squeeze the leaves gently to extract any remaining liquid. Transfer the resulting borage alcohol tincture into dark glass bottles, which help protect the potency of the tincture from light exposure. Label the bottles with the date and contents for future reference. You have successfully crafted a potent borage alcohol tincture, capturing the essence of this miraculous herb. I am proud to share this recipe with you, as we continue to celebrate the natural healing power of borage and the transformative benefits it offers. Borage tincture offers a multitude of benefits that can enhance your well-being.
