Borage is also sometimes indicated to alleviate and heal colds, bronchitis, and respiratory infections in general for its anti-inflammatory and balsamic properties. The flowers can be prepared in infusion to take advantage of its medicinal properties. Crushed leaves give a refreshing drink suitable for treating rheumatism and bronchitis.
Borage is also known as starflower and is naturalized throughout the Mediterranean region.
