The oil is rich in Essential Fatty Acids and in particular it is well known as being the richest commercial plant source of GLA, an Omega 6 Fatty Acid.

Borage Seed Carrier Oil, Cold Pressed for the richest commercial plant source of Omega 6

Borage Seed Oil

We contract with local farmers here in the UK to produce our own Borage seed crop. The plant was originally a native weed but has been cultivated for both seed oil and for herbal infusions over the last 20 years.


The beautiful star-shaped purple flower has given rise to the other name by which this product is known: ‘Starflower oil’. The oil is rich in Essential Fatty Acids and in particular it is well known as being the richest commercial plant source of GLA, an Omega 6 Fatty Acid which is a key ‘building brick’ in production of the body’s regulatory hormones; it has also been shown to be effective in the treatment of dry/damaged skin tissue. The oil rich seed is pressed and extracted using traditional techniques, the crude oil obtained is then refined to yield a pale yellow, low odour product ideal for both dietary and cosmetic applications

Recycling Your Packaging

We actively encourage you to recycle and reuse all Naturallythinking Bottles and Jars, whether they be aluminium, plastic or glass. The life of your bottle and jar does not need end when you have finished the product inside. Our Jars and bottles can be used for anything from stationary to arranging Lego Bricks.

Please never throw empty packaging in the bin. Always recycle your Plastic packaging in the relevant facilities. All of our Plastic Packaging is either PET, PP or HDPE Plastic, so can be readily recycled in household recycling facilities or local plastic waste recycling. If plastic is recycled it still remains one of the most environmentally friendly packaging materials available. Our Glass and Aluminium can be readily recycled in standard household recycling facilities.

For more information on our comparison of packaging types, please see our blog at:

Ensure Packaging is Recycled

  • Always rinse your packaging before putting it in the recycling bin
  • Always seperate the closure and bottle or jar. Often they are made of different materials, seperating ensures both parts will be recycled
