Knit-bone is a folk-medicine name given to Comfrey because of the powerful cell proliferant properties it has to “knit” wounds back together when used externally.

Internally, it is soothing to irritated mucus membranes in the digestive track and respiratory system.

Because the leaf is rich in B vitamins, amino acids, protein, calcium, potassium and trace minerals, it is in the top five of the plants listed for Nourishing Herbal Infusions.

To make a Nourishing Herbal Infusion, measure out one ounce of dried herb and place it in a quart jar. Fill it to the top with boiling water, put the lid on the jar and let it steep for 4 to 10 hours. Then strain out the spent herb, compost it and drink the strained infusion. The goal is to drink one quart of Nourishing Herbal Infusions each day! The five recommended nourishing herbs to rotate through are Comfrey leaf, Nettle leaf, Oat straw, Red Clover blossoms and Linden leaf and blossoms. Enjoy!
