What is Catskills Comfrey?

Catskills Comfrey is an ointment/balm consisting of coconut and olive oils - and heavily infused with organically-grown, dried comfrey. It is a topical application, which can be used several times daily, depending on the actual condition you are treating and its severity.

Comfrey contains allantoin which strongly promotes new cell growth; this is the prinicipal and powerful benefit of comfrey - and why it works so well to alleviate skin inflammation, both subdermal and surface.

Anectodally, early historical texts attest as to the efficacy of its healing powers: '...During ancient times, comfrey baths were popular before marriage to repair the hymen and thus restoring virginity. ...'.

Benefits

Comfrey, commonly referred to as 'knit bone', has been used for centuries as a healing medicinal with positive benefits for myriad skin conditions, both surface and subdermal:

  • sprains, pulled muscles, tendons and ligaments
  • broken bones
  • arthritic pain
  • Trigger Finger symptoms
  • burns, abrasions and skin irritations, especially sunburn
  • bee and wasp stings
  • toe and cuticle inflammation; infected, tender toes
  • acne
  • callus; dry, cracked skin
  • rosacea, rash and psoriasis
  • Carpal Tunnel and arthritic conditions
  • minor skin breaks, abrasions and cuts [fast closure, esp for lymphedema-related issues]

Allantoin [very good - you want this specific benefit]
Essentially, comfrey leaves and root contain allantoin, which encourages growth of new skin cells and increases white blood cells. Allantoin is commonly added to cosmetic creams and lotions.

Pyrrolizidine Alkaloids [bad - but not applicable to Catskills Comfrey]
Comfrey contains pyrrolizidine plkaloids (PAs) which have a demonstrable and detrimental effect on the liver with heavy, concentrated and repeated usage of comfrey. Most of these PAs are found in the root, with lesser amounts in the leaves, particularly the larger leaves which are specifically harvested for our liniment. Research shows that dried comfrey, which is what Catskills Comfrey uses in the infusion process, has negligible PAs.

The PA-based concerns, per the FDA, are directed specifically to ingested, ie, orally-taken, comfrey. Catskills Comfrey is applied topically to the skin as a comfrey-infused oil; it is NOT ingested - and is produced soley from dried, large comfrey leaves, which, purportedly, contain the least, actual amount of PAs. Catskills Comfrey does NOT process or use any root from the comfrey plant.

DO NOT APPLY TO OPEN WOUNDS OR TAKE ORALLY.
