I starting taking borage oil to help my skin in the winter months. It was always dry to the point where it was hurting, and after trying many hand creams I could never solve the problem. Now my skin is great no matter what time of the year -- and I NEVER need to use hand cream which is a huge bonus. I often get complimented about how soft my skin is and I'm in my 40's!

I have used borage oil for my rheumatoid arthritis for several years because there is evidence that it helps control inflammation in RA. My arthritis is under control, and I was able to stop using naproxen, so borage oil could possibly be contributing to my improvement (along with medications, fish oil, vitamin D, and generally taking care of myself). I like the Herbal Select brand of borage oil as the borage is grown pesticide-free in Canada, and the oil is manufactured in Canada.

I have had acne on and off since I had my daughter a year ago. I was getting so frustrated trying different products when I finally did some research and came across borage oil. Within a week my skin cleared. I honestly love this product and it has definitely had a positive effect on my skin.

I love this product. I started having back pain when sleeping in on weekends. Someone recommended Borage oil for this. I have used it for approx 14 years now and it helped the very first time I took it before bedtime and my back was not sore when I slept in on the weekends. I tried Omega 3 but it does not work as well.
