Production: Comfrey is a perennial herb with large, rough leaves and whitish pink bell-shaped flowers. The turnip-like root is black and deep growing.
Qualities: Comfrey root is said to have astringent, anti-inflammatory, demulcent and cell proliferating properties, and it has been traditionally used to heal wounds, cartilage, and bones. It has a high allantoin content which makes cells grow faster and promotes healing.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in an airtight container.
Safety: Contemporary herbalists have a mixed view of whether or not comfrey should be taken internally. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
