Product Details

Comfrey Root (Symphytum officinale) has a rich history as a medicinal herb. Records mention its use in Europe for wound healing and bone repair. Traditional folklore recommended steeping the root or leaves in ale for back pain, while poultices were made to promote bone healing, earning it the nickname "knitbone".

Comfrey's medicinal properties continue to be debated. While some studies have shown effectiveness in topical pain relief for muscle and joint injuries, others raise concerns about liver damage due to pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) found in the plant. Ingesting comfrey, or using it on open wounds, is strongly discouraged due to these potential health risks.

Magically, comfrey has been associated with healing, protection, and prosperity. In some traditions, it was planted around homes to ward off evil spirits and ensure a good harvest. Its fast-growing nature led to its symbolic association with abundance and new beginnings.
