The health benefits of comfrey have long been known. Among its common names are woundwort, bruisewort, and knitbone. You may have guessed… it’s effective at speeding up recovery from sprains, bruising and broken bones.
I’ve been wanting to make comfrey oil for several years and having planted comfrey this spring, I took the chance. If you don’t have comfrey growing in your garden or nearby you can buy organic comfrey roots online. I’ll write another post on the benefits for the garden, but for now, just know it’s one of the staple permaculture favourites, and a great addition to any garden and has multiple benefits.
