Borage - Borago officinalis L. - Boraginaceae.
Other names: Borash (Ger.) Bourrache (French.); borragine (it.) borraja (spain.).

The borage flowers contain potassium nitrate and mucilage - They have diuretic, sudorific, emollient. - We pick the flowers blanched (cleaned) or flowering tops that have dried. They are listed in the French pharmacopoeia 1965.

These flowers like little blue stars on their stems filled with silvery hairs are never more beautiful after the rain.

Although very common especially in the south (it comes from the Levant) is fairly described in the current books on botany.
