Comfrey, also called knitbone, is great for healing sensitive and sore areas. Whether its pain from a recent sprain, injury, or from an old broken bone, comfrey helps to rebuild tendons and ligaments and bring healing cells to the area where the oil is applied. She is able to do this because she is so incredibly loaded with minerals, one of them being silica. Silica is basically plant cells, when brought into our body it helps build bones, tendons, and ligaments. The skin is the largest breathing living organ of our bodies and by applying plant mixtures and oils to it the minerals get absorbed through the skin and go directly to the area in need.
Especially helpful would be a hot pack of comfrey oil directly on a pained area in need of rebuilding. I do this by simmering some water and placing a towel in it. Once the towel is saturated with warm water I then add the oil to the skin and put the towel over it. Even the thought is relief to me!
I harvested this comfrey with thankfulness and dried the leaves then infused them in organic oils.
