Our organic farmed Comfrey leaf double infused oil ... Comfrey Leaf  Oil has been used since at least the 4th century medicinally & It is now used ONLY for external use. Herbalists & Folk remedy medicine makers would bind Comfrey leaves and roots in poultices, then apply those poultices to the skin to treat injuries. The first European settlers of North America considered Comfrey so indispensable, they carried it on their journey across the Atlantic in the 1600s. Comfrey is also known as 'Bone-Knit' for it's ability to promote speedy healing of osteo breaks and fractures. Comfrey has a centuries-old tradition as a medicinal plant. Today, multiple randomized controlled trials have demonstrated the efficacy and safety of topical Comfrey preparations for the topical treatment of pain, inflammation and swelling of muscles and joints in degenerative arthritis, acute myalgia in the back, sprains, closed contusions and strains after sports injuries and accidents, in adults and also in children aged 3 or 4 years and over. As well as pulled muscles and ligaments, fractures, sprains, strains, and osteoarthritis.

 

"The Comfrey plant has long been used as a topical analgesic and anti-inflammatory. Comfrey plants can be used to alleviate muscular discomfort, mend fractures and wounds, and function as an anti-inflammatory (Seigner et al., 2019). Previous research has indicated that comfrey plants have analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties due to the presence of phenolic substances such as rosmarinate acid. Rosmarinic acid inhibits the production and release of pro-inflammatory mediators (Oliviu et al., 2017)."
