Comfrey in Water

Water extracts many important plant constituents including minerals, proteins, sugars, starches, polyphenols, volatiles, and vitamins. Some alkaloids are extracted by water, including allantoin and PAs.

Water-based remedies include, teas, infusions, decoctions, poultices, compresses, soaks, baths, and fomentations.


I use comfrey leaf internally and externally.
I use comfrey root externally only.

Comfrey Leaf Tea: steep 1-3 teaspoons of fresh or dried comfrey leaf in a cup of boiling water for 3-5 minutes. 
Add honey to increase soothing qualities.
