Comfrey is amazing! It looks like a jungle plant and is amazing for cell repair.
Known as “knit-bone” because it was used to heal fractures.

What they couldn’t gather through wild crafting, they grew in their monastery gardens. In the New World, comfrey was among those medicinal plants the early settlers relied upon to treat their many and varied illnesses. While Joseph Busch was head gardener at the palace of Catherine the Great at St. Petersburg, Russia….was so impressed that he sent several plants to his native land of England. Prior to the nineteenth century, the Turks and Saracens used comfrey to heal wounds received in battle.
