Latin Name: Symphytum officinale
Common Names: Comfrey Root, Slippery Root
Comfrey contains a special substance called allantoin, which is a cell proliferative. In other words, it makes cells grow faster. This is one of the reasons why comfrey-treated bones knit so fast, wounds mend so quickly and burns heal with such little scarring. Comfrey is often called knitbone or healing herb. Taken internally and used to heal cuts, abrasions, burns, ulcerations, bruises, and broken bones.
