Comfrey, also called bruisewort, knitbone and slippery root, is a member of the borage family that is native to Asia and Europe. Although this herb has a long history of use internally, it is no longer permitted in products sold in the U.S. or Europe that are intended to be ingested. The herb is still used to make salves, ointments and poultices for topical use because of the high degree of mucilage present in the leaf.

  • Comfrey is a perennial herb related to forget-me-not and borage. Also known as Bruisewort and Knitbone, comfrey has earned an entry in every Materia Medica written since the 15th century, although it's been in use for much longer.

    Due to the presence of pyrrolizidine alkaloids, comfrey leaf is limited to topical uses today but should not be applied to open wounds.

     
  • Avoid using on broken skin.
