Comfrey

Comfrey

comforting comfrey

Comfrey, also called bruisewort, knitbone and slippery root, is a member of the borage family that is native to Asia and Europe. Although this herb has a long history of use internally, it is no longer permitted in products sold in the U.S. or Europe that are intended to be ingested. The herb is still used to make salves, ointments and poultices for topical use because of the high degree of mucilage present in the leaf.

Comfrey Root Powder

COMFREY ROOT POWDER

HEALTH BENEFITS:
Comfrey root powder provides the organic gardener with an easy-to-use material to enrich soil naturally. A compost tea made from a strong infusion using the powdered root will encourage composting vegetation to "cook" faster because it adds nitrogen. The powdered root can also be added in small amounts directly to the compost pile.

Comfrey Root Cut & Sifted (Copy)

COMFREY ROOT CUT

HEALTH BENEFITS:
Comfrey, also known as blackwort, bruisewort and knitbone, has a long history of use as food, medicine in Europe and Asia. While the leaf was once grown as a foraging crop for grazing livestock and used to make teas, and tonics, the deep roots were collected to make poultices and compresses. The use of this herb is largely restricted to topical use today due to the identification of more than eight pyrrolizidine alkaloids and an association with liver damage in animals and humans.
