Nathan, my youngest son, came home with this. He had an altercation with a sawzall and by the time he got home his finger was stiff, sore, and throbbing.
So I go out to the garden head straight to the comfrey patch to gather some leaves.
I gathered some good-looking leaves, some small and some medium-sized.
I place them in the blender to give them a quick chop, someday I’ll get a fancy food processor:).
Next, I had to use a pestle and mortar to finish macerating the leaves into a paste-like consistency.
I spooned some of this mixture onto some cheesecloth, which was placed on top of some plastic wrap.
This was wrapped around his finger, around the hand, and then taped in place, he loved this, . . . . not really.
He just sat at the table for a long time . . . .don’t ya just love the look only a teenager can give you?
Comfrey is a go-to herb for any external wound, bruise, or laceration. I have comfrey fresh, in an ointment, in a mucilage, and dried. It is stupendous, I love it. Everyone should have some on hand for first-aid.
Love life & breathe deep,
