Product Highlight: Comfrey & Calendula Salve

Ever since the FDA required warnings about the internal use of comfrey, it seems to be fading from the eyes of a lot of the herbal and skin care community. We started using comfrey more than 20 years ago, and it remains one of our favorites. We still use it in our practice, but mainly for external use only.

I personally have used it for skin care for years. When the skin part of my Lyme disease was the worst, I slathered comfrey salve on my legs daily to get relief. Lately, I have been having some sort of lip condition, so I use the salve we make to help heal my lips.

Comfrey is one of the best wound healing herbs. This can be internal also, although no longer recommended. I can remember when my grandmother, in her nineties, would always have a patch of comfrey growing in the garden, much to my father's dismay. She had a knack for knowing just what to eat in nature to "set her body right”. Every once in a while, she would cook up a batch of comfrey and eat it as we would kale or other greens.

One of these people was my father who was killed in an auto accident. He died before I even knew that he had been in an accident. No one called me even though my business card (with the same last name) was right next to his drivers license in his wallet.

So many of us have stories like this.

When a person first experiences a traumatic event, they tend to keep talking about the event running the scenerio through their minds. They keep trying to make sense of the shocking experience that they have just been through. Their mind whirls.
