‘borage for courage’ is the rough translation of the old Latin verse “Ego borago gaudia semper ago”.
Borage is anti-inflammatory, demulcent, nutritive and cooling. It is giving tone to relaxed tissues like varicose veins. It is also used to soothe the body's mucous membranes. Borage can help ease arthritis and rheumatism.
Borage can be helpful to uplift and strengthen the spirits, especially in times of grief. It is also a great PMS-relief.
The blue starlike flowers reach an apex, coming to a singular focused point. Borage is excellent for individuals who are scattered in their communication, lack focus and clarity, and are unable to “get to the point”. It can also be useful for people who tend to “beat around the bush” and are not direct with their communication.
Most confusion that occurs in relationships is due to unclear communication and Borage is an excellent remedy to turn to in order to bring more direct, focused and clear communication that gets to the point.
