Borage Tincture

Borage Tincture organic herbal extract is an amazing healer for "broken hearts". Borage has a traditional saying that has been passed through the ages- "I Borage Bring Courage". Borage is an adrenal tonic, it stimulates lactation and generally brings strength and conviction to one's beliefs.  

Mountain Maus' Remedies prepares our Borage Extract from the leaves of Borago officinalis plants which are organically grown on our own ranch without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Our Borage is never fumigated or irradiated.

To assure optimal extraction of borage bioactive compounds, the leaves are hand-harvested while the plant is in full bloom, are carefully shade-dried to retain their full color & aroma, and then thoroughly extracted.

    Posted by on 15th Apr 2015

    I was expecting this to taste pretty bad but was surprised that it tasted a little like cucumbers and smells like it too. Pretty strong and you can tell there is no water added. Mixed it into my tea and burned off the alcohol and it was all good. Yum
