History and curiosity of borage

Since ancient times, it was believed that the borage would bring calm and strength and courage. Was usually soaked in wine or brandy, and was given to travelers before a long trip, or to soldiers before battles. Borage tea was also given to contestants of tournaments in the Middle Ages, as moral support. “Borage brings courage” was a popular slogan of the times. The Celtic word “borrach” means “courage”. Indeed borage, added to the wine, was also used by the Celts to give courage to the warriors and engage the enemy in battle.

The ancient Greeks used it instead to cure headaches from hangover! Borage also encourages cheerfulness (with all the wine with which it was used;-)). It was traditionally used to decorate homes for weddings. The Welsh name for borage, “llawenlys”, means “herb of contentment”. Today it is still used as the essence in ritual baths, taken as a tea, or burned in incense to fortify the courage and find joy in difficult circumstances. This herb gives courage to those who carry it, and that they drink tea or beer in which it was immersed.
