As I wrote 2 days ago on my FB Page how I was preparing new Comfrey Moisturizers, I thought it would be a nice idea to share what benefits Comfrey has as a plant, and as a Herbal Remedy and Medicine.Angelique Mol
Comfrey Root is highly effective in stimulating tissue repair. When applied regularly to damaged tissue such as sprains, bruises, sports injuries, and operation scars, it promotes regrowth and shortens recovery or repair time. Comfrey Ointment or cream merits a place in every home first aid kit.
The parts that are use of Comfrey are the leaves and the root. Comfrey is anti-inflammatory, astringent, demulcent and a wound healer. When applied as soon as possible to the site of bruises, sprains, or minor fractures, comfrey cream or ointment will often minimize swelling and promote quick and effective repair.
Continue applying as ointment, cream, or poultice of leaves and root, until tissue is healed. Comfrey also helps with varicose veins, slow-healing wounds and ulcers. Where the wound is still open, apply Comfrey carefully around the margins of the wound, not directly on it. Apply Comfrey with caution during pregnancy.
Comfrey is also a very useful ingredient in an anti-ageing moisturizer, because of its great tissue healing properties.
Do Not take Comfrey Root internally, but you can make a Tea infusion of the Comfrey Leaves. Do also Not take Comfrey Leaf internally during Pregnancy, or for more than 6 weeks at a time.
Do not apply Comfrey to open wounds. Comfrey is restricted in some countries for internal use, for example in Australia it’s not legal.
You can take Comfrey Leaf Tincture as a Herbal Remedy, but with caution and strict to the dose, and also Not using it during Pregnancy. Also when you are on prescribed medication, you always need to consult your GP or Medical Specialist before using Herbal Remedies.
