A strong healer, Comfrey speeds cell regeneration (allantoin) and is great for bruises, sprains, pulled muscles and tendons, blunt traumas, sports injuries, abrasions, and inflammation and has a reputation for healing broken bones. It is anti-inflammatory, analgesic and astringent. Not for use in open wounds as it can heal and close the wound quicker than the internal body needs. Do not ingest.
Comfrey’s history can be traced back to long ago and is probably best known for healing sprains, broken bones and related traumas. It was native to Eurasia, and is known as common comfrey, knitweed, blackwort, boneset, bruisewort, gum plant, healing herb, salsify, and slippery root and was brought to the U.S. by English emigrants. Reading about it’s historical uses is quite fascinating and makes me wonder if it was used to re-attach severed fingers and toes. It was used in Ireland for food during the potato famine. Although also traditionally ingested, including as a treatment for Foxglove poisoning, it contains a component that most today believe to be toxic. It is also used by cattle farmers and as garden fertilizer. This oil is for external use only, and, as always, please do your own research.
