Comfrey is the fastest wound healer I’ve come across yet. It is also fantastic at relieving itching – whether from insect bites or rashes. I have tins of the Burt’s Bees Res-Q Ointment in every bathroom in my house, another tin in my purse, and I never travel without it. I also use it as my nightly lip balm, and on the inside of my nose if sore or dry. Also great for burns – cool the area first with ice, then apply.
Please Note: Professional herbalists and naturopathic physicians take a very different stance on comfrey use from the established authorities. Many herbalists and NDs feel it's safe to use comfrey as long as you don't use it continually, long-term. Therefore, they recommend you use it in moderate doses for 3 to 6 months, then take a break of 1 month to allow the liver to cleanse properly, then resume use for 3 to 6 months, etc. as needed. Comfrey has become one of the FDA's targeted substances - likely due to its effectiveness, so when you do your research, keep that in mind.
Personally, I have used comfrey repeatedly on broken skin for myself and my kids. I have used it as a suppository and I have used it as a Healing Implant Enema to stop colonic bleeding. You, of course, should do your research, follow your naturopathic doctor's advice, and only do what feels safe for you.
