The healing power of comfrey can be described by the saying: “Two fingers would grow together if bound by the fibers of comfrey root.”
This plant is the awkward, black on the outside, white on the inside, yellow root thing that helps EVERYTHING!
It helps in fractured (and purulent) fingers, bone outgrowth, hands and feet, varicose veins, open veins, neck pain, amputated limbs and even rare bone tissue, pain in the arms and legs after breaking and cast removal, pain in the lower part of the pelvis and pelvic damage, shoulder, elbow and knee pain, osteoporosis issues, warts or other growths, leg tremble from heel to hip, hemorrhoids, rheumatic muscle thickening, gout, bone pain, circulation disorders.
All the types of injury, stings, wounds, blood thickening are healed by the TINCTURE made from comfrey.
Comfrey contains the hormone auxin which makes new tissue grow without problem so the wound heals fast, and allantoin as the main component of its root encourages the granulation and regeneration of the tissue. It is irreplaceable in tendon inflammation, arthritis (joint inflammation), distortion (dislocation), contusion (charge, contusions), hematoma (bloody bruises), trombophlebitis (vein inflammation) and more.
The comfrey tincture takes a high spot in face and hand cosmetics. This tincture’s ability is to regenerate and rejuvenate wrinkly and loose skin (especially the bores around the eyes).
After a long usage of the tincture, the skin of face and hands regenerates fully.
For outside gout use there’s no better remedy than the comfrey tincture which rubs easily into the hard gout.
The comfrey tincture has shown great results in nerve inflammation healing – wherever on the body the injured parts are sensitive to pressure, that reflects on the peripheral nerves.
“The comfrey tincture has immense strength in it. Comfrey tincture will bring relief quickly to the patients who have been trying to cure painful joints and rheum for years without results.” claims Matija Treben in the book “Biljke iz Bozje Ljekarne”.
Recipe for comfrey tincture
Put 100 gr. of comfrey root in 700 ml. of strong brandy or alcohol in a plastic bottle, and leave it horizontally in a dark place for 14 days.
Shake it every third day.
After 14 days, filter it and keep it in a dark bottle in a cold place.
Rub the injured spot with the tincture 3 times a day.
Homeopaths claim that there isn’t a person whom this tincture did not help.
Note: pure alcohol instead of brandy gives tincture without smell. Comfrey with brandy smells awful. This tincture is very sticky.
