Comfrey is a great healer and has been used to heal all injuries from torn ligaments to broken bones. I have had miraculous results on eczema and tendonitis. It will heal cuts over night and helps to relieve pain, swelling and bruising. I also include it my liniments because it heals and strengthens tissues. Lavandin essential oil is added to improve the scent and really intensifies the healing power! Lavandin is hybrid between lavender and spike lavender and the scent and healing properties are similar to lavender.
Comfrey should not be used on open wounds that are infected or dirty. It closes cuts so quickly it will seal in infection and debris so if there are any doubts you should apply the comfrey around the wound.
