About Indian Borage
This could be a 'forgotten' herb in the face of so many
'new-interest' herbs flooding the market and dominating neighbourhood
chit-chats. You will appreciate this herb if you put it to
test the next time you have a bout of sore throat, sinus, or cough.
take 3-4 fresh leaves and slowly suck it together with a menthol or
mint jujube. Repeating this about 3 times a day for a few
will definitely remove the symptoms.
It is very effective against respiratory problems
such as bronchitis, sinusitis, loss of voice, sore
throats, coughs, and its
adjunctive maladies such as feeling feverish, 'under-the-weather' and
lethargy. Of course, do not expect an overnight success for
pre-conditions which are at least 5-10 years old.
The 'handsome' leaves, thick and pulpy, make for ornamental value too,
especially when in a cluster of leaves.
