Just finished a custom order of a pure comfrey healing salve - but it turned out to be such a beautiful salve that I think this is one I'm going to keep making in my regular line-up of herbal items for Homestead Herbals. Comfrey has been used for generations to heal all manner of skin conditions, from eczema, to cuts, scrapes, burns and bruises. It is also known as "knit bone" from it's reputed ability to help heal broken bones and sprains when applied regularily as a poultice. It's somewhat of a wonder plant, and should be part of every urban garden (both for it's medicinal uses and also it's benefits to the compost pile, making compost tea, etc). It grows wild in many urban areas and although it is often overlooked as a common weed, it should be given due respect. Generally this plant is only to be used externally as there is some controversy among herbalists and other health practitioners about it's safety when taken internally.
