  1. My aunt used comfry for years
    I can remember her bring some with her when she came for visit
    And mom planting some in her garden
    Them drinking Tea too.

  2. I made the salve last season and it had the foulest smell I could imagine -is that normal?
    I did the comfrey and olive oil I turned it regularly and waited until appropriate time then mixed with some beeswax – it looked about the consistancy of your photo. but the smell was so so bad I just tossed it after two day ( I thought if I waited perhaps smell would subside) also it took 4 washings to get the smell out of the containers I put it in to set. no one seems to answer when I say it was smelling but I seriously don’t know if it is supposed to or not. sometimes things that are good for you don’t always smell wonderful. Thanks Dana*

    • Dana, its probably the olive oil. I make a face ointment with olive as one of the ingredients and it does smell icky until I get enough scented essential oil to cover it up.
      Try using safflower or sunflower oil. don’t use sunflower if you are allergic to nuts.

        Many years ago my former husband had a severe car accident and had a hole in his lower lip. The lip was stitched up at the ER. After a day or two the wound it leaked liquid so I cooked some comfry in shortening put it in a cheese cloth on the stitches and in two days we could take the stitches out and there was hardly a scar. Now that I know how to make the ointment it will save time and money . Miracle herb!!

    • The smell is normal, actually. Comfrey tends to deteriorate very quickly, which is why it makes an excellent accelerator for your garden compost pile. I made a batch of comfrey oil and left it in the sun for a day, which was a big no-no. It smelled so rancid I could hardly stand it. And my comfrey tea (for the garden) smells like rotting bodies…the neighbors don’t know what to think anymore…lol!
