Description: A perennial favourite in herbal medicine. Comfrey makes an unusual appearance as a hydrosol. It is known for its spectacular wound healing properties. It reduces inflammation and protects and soothes irritated tissue. Anti-bacterial action is due to the presence of tannins. Comfrey shines in external use for bruises, and sprains. Because of Comfrey’s ability to heal so rapidly, avoid using on deep wounds to avoid the surface skin from repairing before the deeper layers regenerate. As with Calendula, the mild fragrance allows Comfrey to boost other hydrosol blends without adding aromatic notes. Has a fresh, herbaceous fragrance.
Hydrosols should not be stored in the refrigerator. They like a cool, stable environment and temperature fluctuations disturb them. If you do refrigerate yours, or if it is exposed to extreme temperatures, bring your hydrosol to room temperature gradually and gently.
*130 ml size is packaged in a spray bottle
I love the hydrosol's, I use them as spray on treatments as needed, a great way to get results in a more economical way. Comfrey is especially good for wound cleansing and healing, no stinging no burning.
