A little information about these two amazing healer herbs.
Comfrey. (Symphytum officinale), is a plant that was used by the Greeks over three thousand years ago. During the Middle Ages, comfrey was a popular remedy for broken bones. In fact, it earned the nickname "knitbone" because its leaves, when applied as a poultice to reduce the swelling around fractures, did a good job of healing those fractures.
Comfrey's most important ingredient is the substance, allatoin. Allatoin is believed to be a cell proliferator, able to strengthen skin tissue and help heal ulcers, and is often used in ointments/salves for skin problems. Because allatoin is present in the urine of pregnant women, in their milk, and in those parts of plants which are related to growth, it is believed that allatoin is closely related to the growth and multiplication of cells.
The external uses of Calendula are wide and varied:
Scrapes, scratches, bruises and especially burns respond well to Calendula creams, ointments and washes, as do bug bites, diaper rash and allergic skin reactions.
Many traditional physicians recommend calendula cream to help heal sunburn, minor topical burns and hemorrhoids.
When applied to wounds, calendula prevents microbial growth and does not cause skin tissues to retract providing more oxygen to the skin cells to help speed up healing.
Studies have shown that using calendula cream while undergoing radiation therapy for breast cancer reduces the appearance of dermatitis.
