Symphytum officinale, Helianthus annuus hybrid oil
Organic hot macerated roots and leaves of UK-grown Comfrey in Cold pressed, Organic Sunflower Oil (origin: Holland). Macerated in the UK.
UK-macerated for Aromantic
Our comfrey oil is one of a small range of macerated oils that is especially produced for us by a grower in the Welsh Borders, where he has been growing herbs organically for 25 years. We are very happy with the good quality. After I (Kolbjorn) visited their farm personally, I came away very impressed with what they do. All the oils are macerated in certified organic high oleic content sunflower oil.
This is a macerated oil, the colour of deep green because of the allantoin content in comfrey. Comfrey roots have been macerated in organic high oleic sunflower oil. Because the high oleic content gives this sunflower oil the same properties as sweet almond oil, this is a long oil, making it very good for long massage strokes used in whole body massage. It is therefore good for enhancing whole body massage oils and generally any products that need good lubrication properties. The base oil also is soft and smooth, promoting skin suppleness.
Comfrey oil also contains tannins, glycosides and is an excellent source of B12, so very appropriate in creams for vegetarians and vegans who are short of this essential vitamin. It also contains a vegetable protein and is cell proliferant, rebuilding damaged cells.
In creams, it can repair damage caused by surgery, acne, or eczema and is an essential vegetable oil for your healing preparations. In cream and lotion preparations for athletes, it aids torn muscles, ligaments and strains. In preparations for mature women, it assists in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis.
Comfrey macerated oil should not be used for cooking.
Whether or not comfrey is safe to use is an area of controversy. Generally, it is currently accepted that external application of comfrey poses little risk of alkaloid seepage into the skin but we advise you to check with a medical herbalist if you are unsure whether to use the oil. Because we cannot know individual circumstances or health conditions, we do not suggest that you use comfrey oil/products in any form when pregnant or breastfeeding or if you have a current or historical problem with your liver.
Do not use comfrey externally on new puncture wounds or deep cuts because the outer layers of skin will be stimulated by the comfrey to close and heal the outer layers of skin before there is time to drain and regenerate the deeper tissues.
In these cases you can first apply calendula oil and once the swelling and pain have subsided and the wound is clean, drained and healing normally, comfrey oil may be safely applied to speed up the wound healing process effectively. Note: You may use a 20% solution of chamomile hydrolate in water to clean the wound.
When using comfrey oil for postoperative clients, such as people who have had hip replacements it is VERY important to allow a period of 2-3 months before applying comfrey oil. This is to allow the deeper tissue to heal. You can use calendula oil in the first 2-3 months and then combine it or use comfrey oil on its own after this initial period.
It’s very beneficial to blend comfrey macerated oil with calendula oil as they have a synergistic healing effect. Other good macerated oils to blend with comfrey oil are St. John’s wort oil and arnica oil.
