What Comfrey herb Is:

The name comfrey apparently was derived from a Latin word that translates as "knitting together." Over the ages, It's also been known as bruisewort, knitback, and knitbone. All these aliases contain a clue to its therapeutic use. Another onetime name, ass ear, is more of a tip-off to what the plant's long green leaves look like. Originally found only in Eurasia, comfrey, with its bell-shaped purple flowers, now grows wild in the eastern United States and Canada.

Also known as knitbone, comfrey has a good reputation as a wound healer. It is soothing, healing and anti-inflammatory.
