Comfrey

Botanical Name: Symphytum officinale
Origin: Bulgaria


TOPICAL USE  POULTICE

Sprains, Swellings, and Bruise: 
Comfrey has been used as a topical treatment for sprains, strains, and bruises due to its purported anti-inflammatory properties. It is believed to help reduce pain and swelling when applied as a poultice or in the form of a cream or ointment.
Wound Healing:
Comfrey has traditionally been used to promote wound healing. It contains allantoin, a compound known for its ability to stimulate cell proliferation and tissue regeneration. This property is thought to be beneficial for wound healing when comfrey is applied topically.
Boils, Abscesses, and Gangrenous Ulcers
: Some traditional herbalists have used comfrey topically to aid in the treatment of boils, abscesses, and gangrenous ulcers. Its potential anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties may be relevant in these cases.

Precautions
It's important to emphasize that while comfrey has been used for these purposes, there are safety concerns associated with its use, especially when used internally. The pyrrolizidine alkaloids in comfrey can be harmful to the liver when consumed over an extended period or in high doses. For this reason, it is generally not recommended to use comfrey internally, such as in teas or as a dietary supplement.
