Native to the Mediterranean region, its summer-long growth of blue star-shaped flowers make borage one of the most attractive herbs to bees and other beneficial insects. Its pleasant cucumber like flavor has traditionally been used to infuse drinks; the flowers were preserved or candied. Currently, commercial growers produce borage for the oil in its seeds. This oil has a high percentage of gamma-linolenic acid, an essential omega-6 fatty acid that plays a crucial part in the growth of skin cells.
