Why use comfrey ointment?

Why use comfrey ointmentComfrey is a perennial herb which can be found in Europe, Asia and North America. It has been cultivated and used as a herbal medicine for more than 2,000 years.

Greeks and Romans used comfrey to stop heavy bleeding, treat bronchial problems, and heal wounds and broken bones.

In recent years we discovered that its oral use might be toxic so a lot of countries banned it but it is still safe to use it in ointments, creams and salves.

Comfrey works on: muscle pains, joint pains and arthritis. It can speed up wound healing as well as reduce swelling. It really is a wonder herb.

Recently I was introduced to comfrey ointment from Remedinature. This odourless skin balm really does wonders.

Comfrey’s most important ingredient is the substance called Allatoin. Allatoin is believed to be a cell proliferator, able to strengthen skin tissue, promoting the growth and multiplication of cells and this is what facilitates the speeding up of the healing period.

Remedinature Comfrey Ointment comes in 60ml or a 120ml jar. The jar is dark brown so sunlight can’t penetrate inside, thus keeping the ointment fresh and safe for longer. The product is colourless and odourless and it’s nice to learn that it is not tested on animals; it has no chemical additives and it contains only natural ingredients!

The best bit I can say is, after some extensive testing myself, it works!

As an everyday example one of the first times I used it, it was to treat my skin after a particularly nasty insect bite; my skin was red, swollen and extremely itchy… within a brief time the ointment took all the itchiness away and that was a relief in itself. Hours later and the itchiness had still not returned and the redness had mellowed and the swelling had reduced in size…

Comfrey Ointment is a versatile remedy which can help in many situations and should be in every medicine cabinet I believe.

Have you had the chance to experience the joy of comfrey?
