Comfrey Oil is produced by low temperature maceration (solar-infusion) of the dark green hairy leaves and thick roots of the Symphytum officinale plant in organic Sunflower Oil to extract its lipid soluble components. With a penchant for rebuilding skin cells, promoting healthy skin tissue, and improving healing time, Comfrey Oil is one to always have around.
With a history of traditional use stretching back thousands of years, Comfrey has been cultivated as a healing herb since at least 400 BCE. The Greeks and Romans commonly used this medicinal herb to stop heavy bleeding, treat bronchial problems and heal wounds and broken bones. Taking its name from the Latin con fera which means to knit together, and the Old English knitbone, Comfrey has been prized since ancient times for its ability to help heal broken bones and damaged tissues. This has also lead to Comfrey also being referred to in herbal texts as 'Knitbone'.
