Comfrey is one of natures greatest medicinal herbs and has been used since about 400 BC as a healing treatment. Throughout the ages comfrey has acquired an unrivalled reputation as a healing rub for arthritis and similar aches and pains. Greeks and Romans used comfrey to heal wounds and broken bones. Indeed, its name derives from the Latin “conferre”, meaning bring together or grow together. In Medieval times, comfrey’s reputation for knitting broken bones flourished and it was commonly referred to as knit-bone and often called the heal-all herb. Abluo’s comfrey blend takes advantage of these wonderful properties proven over the centuries and also includes pure essential oils also reputed to ease severe joint and bone pain making what we believe is an amazing all round healer and may help aid rapid healing for a vast array of problems including arthritis, rheumatism, broken bones and bone fractures.
