Recently both the Drylands Department and the Sustainable Living department worked together to make comfrey ointment. Comfrey is a well known plant remedy for easing muscle, bone and skin problems, for example, sprains, bites, rashes, muscle pains, even broken bones. Considering all the outdoor and physical activities that we do here at Sunseed, this ointment is an essential part of our natural medicine cabinet!

Comfrey is a native plant of Europe and is incredibly versatile and useful. Not only, is it a great natural medicine but it also is very good natural fertilizer as it is full of potassium. Therefore, it is an important compliment to the work of both the Drylands and Organic Gardens departments at Sunseed. You can find comfrey plants everywhere here.

So if you want to make some comfrey ointment, this is what you do:

You will need:

Cumfrey roots

Olive or almond oil
