what else you should know

comfrey root

Comfrey is one of 35 species of hairy-leafed, flowering plants in the Boraginaceae family, which includes many well-known relatives such as fiddlenecks, heliotrope, forget-me-nots and borage. Although comfrey itself is an attractive plant that produces colorful bell-shaped flowers, some gardeners would argue that its persistence to either invade or escape uncontained settings would constitute a weed.

For centuries, comfrey leaf has been regarded as a vegetable in Asia and the root as a tonic in central and western Europe. While it was once common to produce teas and tinctures from the herb, the use or sale of comfrey products for internal use are now restricted in the US, Canada and Germany due to a high concentration of multiple pyrrolizidine alkaloids. Other compounds in comfrey, however, such as rosmarinic acid and allantoin, make the herb suitable for topical applications to counter inflammation and minor skin irritations.
