Hello everyone. I hope everyone has had a lovely day or night. The name comfrey is believed to come from Latin 'confera', meaning knitting together. The genus name symphytum means to heal together. It can assist the body to heal any part that is broken or torn. Another common name is knitbone. Leaves or roots applied as a wash, poultice or ointment are used for bruising, boils, bed sores, insect bites, sciatica, rheumatism, varicose veins, neuralgia, rheumatism, ulcers, tumours, gangrene, shingles and dermatological conditions. Internally, comfrey has been used for: lung conditions, indigestion, stomach and bowel problems, excessive menstrual flow, coughs, glandular fever, anorexia, lupus, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, cancer and many other health complaints.
