Comfrey (Symphytum Officinale)
As an herbalist and a gardener, I use my comfrey for show. I enjoy the deep intricate veins of the leaves and because of the detailed veins comfrey is also known as knit bone. Comfrey has many other common names such as boneset. In organic gardening it as an important herb in organic gardening used as a fertilizer and as an herbal medicine. Because of its controversy as a toxic plant some herbalists have a mixed view of comfrey, despite widespread historical use. Its traditional names of knit bone, boneset and the derivation of its Latin name Symphytum (from the Greek symphis, meaning growing together of bones, and phyton, a plant), speak to its longstanding reputation as a therapeutic herb. Comfrey was historically used to treat an ailment ranging from bronchial problems, broken bones, sprains, arthritis, gastric and varicose ulcers, severe burns, acne and other skin conditions. Take precaution in the introduction of any herb and seek professional help with proper identification and seek advice of a medical professional for herbs, vitamins or supplements. This is your daily herb and remember a wiser you is a healthier you
Also, comfrey has been placed on the endangered species list for its widespread use.
