Curing Inflammations and Strains with Comfrey Leaf – posted by lisal2 at Pagan Friends USA

Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) AKA Boneset, Bruisewort, Knit back, Knit bone, Slippery Root.

Herbal Remedies: Comfrey Leaves has long been known by the ancients to slow bleeding, heal strains, inflammations, and pulled muscles; aid in healing colds and ease burns. The chemical constituent allantoin found in comfrey is responsible for comfrey’s success in healing tissue by growing new cells.

Using Comfrey as a Poultice: Add 1 oz. Comfrey with just enough water to make a soft moist mass, heat til nice and fairly warm, then spread on cheesecloth over the skin to treat an aching, inflamed or painful part of the body. Comfrey Leaves are very good as an external remedy, for sprains, swellings and bruises. Comfrey will actually help to reduce the swelling around a broken bone, causing the bones to knit together quickly, hence the name given by the ancients of Knit Bone.

A Comfrey Leaf Poultice is also a supporative. Apply the poultice to boils or abscesses to aid in the formation and discharge of pus from the boil. Comfrey can also be applied to any ulcer or seeping sore of the skin to bring the infection out.

For burns or sunburns, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Remove from heat and add about ¼ oz dried Comfrey Leaves. Let this stand about 10 minutes and strain. Add the comfrey tea to Aloe gel until it is thin enough to spray with a sprayer. This all natural burn spray is marvelously refreshing after a day in the sun and very healing!

Comfrey Leaves can be used as a tea to help with colds. Add 1 oz. of the leaves to 1 pint of boiling water. Simmer for at least 4 – 6 minutes, then strain. I do need to mention that the tea should be used in moderation. It is reported to cause liver damage if taken in large amounts over long periods of time!
