General description and domicile:
Comfrey is possibly the best known herbal remedy in use today.
Symphytum is a hairy three foot high sturdy perennial with pretty bell-like flowers that flowers from spring to autumn. It has been grown in gardens since the days of the ancient Greeks who used the plant as a poultice on wounds and fractured bones. It was also used internally for a variety of ills and it is only very recently that the Pyrrolizidine alkaloids in comfrey have been associated with blocking of the arteries so that comfrey and other plants containing these constituents are no longer recommended for anything other than topical applications.

Part used and extraction:
The fresh root is used, harvested in autumn, winter or spring before it blooms.

Remedy preparation:
Chopped and steeped in alcohol to obtain mother tincture
