Comfrey leaf was once a common medicinal herb, with alternate names like boneset and knitbone indicating its former use. Today, oral products that contain comfrey are banned in the U.S. and most of Europe due to potential liver toxicity.

Powdered comfrey leaf, however, may be used to make poultices, ointments, salves and creams for minor skin irritations where there is no broken skin.

Comfrey is a perennial member of the borage family that is native to Europe and southwestern Asia and naturalized elsewhere. Since the herb was introduced by European immigrants in the 1600s, it has become a naturalized resident of woodland settings throughout much of North America.

Also known as Quaker comfrey, slippery root and knitbone, comfrey has been cultivated since 400 BC as poultice material to address inflammation associated with rashes, bruises and sprains. At one time, the young leaves and stems were harvested as a salad herb and vegetable or to produce teas. However, although the allantoin content of the leaves is soothing to skin and is used in the cosmetics industry to manufacture a variety of personal care products, the presence of more than half a dozen pyrrolizidine alkaloids make the internal use of this herb unadvisable.
