To make this salve I infuse my own comfrey oil for six weeks over the summer, therefore supply is seasonal and limited
COMFREY SALVE WITH ESSENTIAL OILS 120G
Comfrey Infused Oil, Symphytum officinale; traditionally called “knitbone”; contains allantoin which aids in the regeneration of all tissues in the body. The mechanism for this seems to be its ability to encourage fibroblasts to produce connective tissue, cartilage, bone and even neural cells. Allantoin also promotes keratin dispersal and has had some effectiveness in the topical treatment of psoriasis. Comfrey contains other constituents which improve its healing effect; these are mucilages which help soothe inflamed skin tissue, tannins which help to contract and form a seal over damaged skin, gums and resins which also aid in tissue repair.
