Comfrey! by Patsy Patricia
I am ready to start brewing up some wonderful herbal remedies!
One of my favorites of all time is Comfrey! I use it in most of my best soap recipes! It's so soothing to the skin, and to the entire body... and it's a pretty plant too! Easy to grow...!
So... here is something to think about!
Are you a little nervous about doing a bone scan to check for osteoporosis?
(ME TOO! )
It's just crazty! I really don't want to buy into all the crap about going to the doctor for an annual check up... but sometimes you do need to know what is going on ... sometimes...!
So... if you want to check your bone density, take a gander in the mirror - at your face...! The deeper the wrinkles on your face, the more bone mass you may have lost!
Since collagen holds bone and skin together, looking in the mirror tells you the correlation between the two... more wrinkles, less collagen!
So... what to do about it?
Let me tell you!
A comfrey infusion nourishes the production of collagen,
strengthening bones and reducing wrinkles.
Use fresh or dried comfrey leaves to make a comfrey infused honey for use on your face for quick facial or to put on your bread or in your tea!
about 1 oz of fresh comfrey leaves, or 3 oz dried leaves
2 cups of honey
place leaves in a jar that has a tightly closing lid. Add honey on the top of the leaves. Shake once daily for about 2 weeks. Remove leaves from honey.
Use a canning jar to make comfrey infused oils.
I use oils on my skin instead of a lotion ... or I make a homemade lotion out of the infused oils!
Use 1 oz of comfrey leaves with 2 cups of oil.
Put the leaves in the jar, cover with the oil of your choice.
You can use olive oil, sweet almond oil, hemp seed oil.. the list is endless!
Put the lid on tightly and shake once a day for 2 weeks.
put the lid on and place jar in a pot of water on the stove. Turn the burner on low and allow to heat up for an hour. turn off and allow to cool. Repeat the heating and cooling process several times over the next 3 days, allowing the slow gentle heat to help the herb infuse the oil.
Make a "tea" infusion to drink or to bathe your skin in.
Get one of the larger canning jars. In a large pot, boil up about a pint of water.
drop 1 tablespoon of dried comfrey leaves into the water and allow to cool down.
Pour 'tea' into the canning jar and allow to sit for 1 day in the refridgerator, shaking the jar once or twice.
Add comfrey honey and sip your tea
pour the tea over a wash cloth and place over your face for 10 minutes as a quickie facial .
