The healing properties of comfrey
Comfrey is a potent anti-inflammatory wound healing herb. Both the root & the leaves are used for external poultice for wounds, sores, rashes, burns, fractures, & insect bites.
Comfrey salves have been used for hundreds of years with great results for these skin issues. This herb speeds the healing process & promotes growth of new skin cells.
Note: Do not ingest comfrey internally, as it can potentially cause internal issues. However, using this herb externally is very healing & perfectly safe.
What you’ll need:
Tins or jars
1 cup comfrey infused oil
1 ounce beeswax
1 ounce refined shea butter
If you don’t have comfrey infused oil, you will have to make your own by filling a jar about 1/2 full of dried comfrey & fill the rest of the jar with a carrier oil of choice.
Let the oil infuse in a cool, dark place for 4-6 weeks (or longer).
Strain out comfrey leaves & you have comfrey infused oil.
Use a double boiler (or a makeshift one with another pot) & simmer about 2 inches of water.
Put the comfrey oil & beeswax into the bowl until it completely dissolves, stirring occasionally.
Add the shea butter & stir until dissolved.
Carefully pour mixture into small jars or tins & let sit until the salve cools & sets completely.
