Comfrey Salve


Comfrey salve is said to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain when applied topically (i.e., directly to the skin).


Comfrey is a perennial herb with a black, many fingered root and large, hairy broad leaves that bears small bell-shaped flowers of various colors. The flower color on our plants is a light beautifully streaky purple. The botanical name for comfrey, Symphytum, means “to unite” or “grow together.” (from the Greek symphis, meaning growing together of bones, and phyton, a plant). This gives a clue to the ancient use of this wonderful herb.

Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) contains an element called allantoin. Allantoin encourages cell growth and, thereby, aids in mending damaged tissue. Many of the beneficial properties of comfrey are attributed to its high content of allantoin, a substance that helps promote new skin cell growth. In addition, the herb contains rosmarinic acid and additional phenolic acids that enable comfrey to function as an anti-inflammatory agent.

Comfrey has antibacterial properties and speeds wound healing. It is also awesome for using after a bath as a moisturizer to condition, soften skin, and to relieve dry, itchy skin naturally. Calms eczema, cuts, scratches, bruises and much more.

Comfrey Salve is helpful to aid in the healing of…

* skin rashes
* bruises
* gout
* rheumatoid arthritis
* sprains and strains
* wounds
* bone fractures

Apart from helping treat superficial wounds, comfrey salve has also been applied to fractured bones or torn ligaments in areas of the body where it is not possible to place a cast, such as a rib. It can be applied directly onto your skin, potentially promoting fast healing. It is also said to help reconstruct torn muscles that might have been injured.
