Comfrey is an herb that has been used for centuries for wound healing, and it is commonly known as bruisewort, boneset and knitbone. Its uses include bone fractures, back pain, sprains, strains, skin ulcers, varicose veins, major and minor wounds for its ability to reduce inflammation of the wounded area and for its pain relieving action. Comfrey also contains allantoin, which promotes the growth of new cells and is most likely responsible for its wound healing abilities.
Comfrey root and leaves (Symphytum officinale) are used to relieve pain from blunt injuries, promote healing of broken bones, sprains and bruises, reduce swelling and edema, and encourage the rapid and healthy regrowth of skin and tissue cells. Comfrey relieves pain and inflammation caused by injuries and degeneration. Comfrey salve can be used in arthritic pain relieving massages. Comfrey is a marvelous herb and is one of the best-known healing herbs of all times. Its very name, symphytum, means to heal. Comfrey has been used for centuries for its bone mending qualities. Comfrey salves, ointments and teas are best known for the topical treatment of burns, skin ulcerations, abrasions, lacerations, flea and insect bites, and just about any skin irritation. Likewise a poultice, salve or infusion of the leaves can be applied to bruises, fractures, sprains, and other closed-tissue injuries.
