Comfrey (Symphytum officinale), or common comfrey, is a distinctive herb, considered by the English herbalist Culpeper to be "under the dominion of the moon," it is a member of the Boraginaceae family. The genus name Symphytum is from the Greek word sympho meaning to unite. The common name comfrey is from the Latin confirmare meaning to join together. Comfrey grows well in rich, moist meadows or along ponds and riverbanks. This herb can grow to a height of 4 feet. The Comfrey root is large, branching and black on the outside and a creamy white on the inside. The root and the hollow erect stem Comfrey Leaves both contain mucilage.

Comfrey Leaf Safety & Interaction Information
When taken internally and in large doses, Comfrey could cause damage to your liver and long term use could lead to liver cancer. Using Comfrey externally is generally considered safe; however, care should be taken when using this herb in a compress for external wounds because the healing action is so fast and effective, that the top of a deep wound would heal over before the deeper portions had a chance to heal, thus causing an infection or abscess situation. Pregnant women should not use this product internally. Safety in young children, nursing mothers, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.
