Get Comfy with Comfrey

Get Comfy with Comfrey

For centuries, people have been getting their bodies "comfy" with help from this powerful plant.  While standing only about 2-3 feet in height, it's strength is legendary.

Comfrey was historically used to treat a wide variety of ailments ranging from bronchial problems, broken bones, sprains, arthritis, gastric and varicose ulcers, severe burns, acne and other skin conditions.

So what is the "spinach" to this "Popeye Plant"?


The plant contains the small organic molecule allantoin, which is thought to stimulate cell growth and repair while also depressing inflammation. Constituents of comfrey also include mucilage, steroidal saponins, tannins, pyrrolizidine alkaloids, inulin, and proteins. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comfrey

While Comfrey continues to be utilized by some internally, we do not recommend it due to several cases of acute liver injury. http://livertox.nih.gov/Comfrey.htm 
 
However, the benefits gained from the external use of natural Comfrey are both entirely safe and extraordinary.

Comfrey leaves are of much value as an external remedy, both in the form of fomentations, for sprains, swellings and bruises, and as a poultice, to severe cuts, to promote suppuration of boils and abscesses, and gangrenous and ill-conditioned ulcers . The whole plant, beaten to a cataplasm and applied hot as a poultice, has always been deemed excellent for soothing pain in any tender, inflamed or suppurating part. It is useful in any kind of inflammatory swelling. http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/c/comfre92.html
