Comfrey is one of nature’s greatest medicinal herbs and has been used since about 400 BC as a healing herb. Throughout the ages comfrey has acquired an unrivalled reputation as a healing herb. Greeks and Romans used comfrey to stop heavy bleeding, treat bronchial problems, and heal wounds and broken bones. Indeed, its name derives from the Latin ‘conferre’, meaning ‘bring together’ or ‘grow together’. In Medieval times, comfrey’s reputation for knitting broken bones flourished and it was commonly referred to as knitbone and often called the heal-all herb, and it is also now very popular for arthritic pain. Comfrey ointment is an amazing all rounder, famed for aiding rapid healing for a vast array of skin injuries, broken bones and bone fractures. Comfrey’s most important ingredient is the substance allantoin. Allantoin is believed to be a cell proliferator, able to strengthen skin tissue, promoting the growth and multiplication of cells and thus speeding healing.
