Welcome to Les Âmes Fleurs!
Latin name : Symphytum officinalis
Parts : Roots
Country : Bulgaria
Amount : 100 g or 454 g (1lb)
Properties : The Comfrey contains allantoin and is a powerful healing. It treats bruises (blue) and injuries such as sprains (poultice, bath). It is suitable for dry hair care and strengthens the root of the hair. It is useful in acne cases to repair the skin.
Precautions: Always make sure to disinfect a wound before applying the Comfrey, because it is not antiseptic. Check that there is no displaced fracture before applying on a sprain (it "brings" the bones, but does not replace them). Prohibited internally by Health Canada because it contains toxic pyrrolyzidinic alkaloids for the liver.
Plant powders' uses: In capsules, in food, in smoothie, in pastilles and energy balls, then externally (cosmetics, ointments, poultices). Unless exceptional, plant powders are not soluble in water, although several molecules they contain. For better results, it is preferable to extract these molecules in water, alcohol or in oil (certain molecules are fat -soluble). For more information, the Schools Flowers offers an introductory workshop and an à la carte course on the manufacture of therapeutic products.
We advise to consult a health professional before using medicinal plants, especially if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or under medication.
