Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) is a perennial herb native to Europe and parts of Asia. The plant contains several bioactive compounds, including allantoin, rosmarinic acid, tannins, and pyrrolizidine alkaloids. Allantoin is celebrated for its wound-healing and skin-regenerating effects, contributing to comfrey’s popularity as an ingredient in topical preparations for cuts, bruises, and skin irritations. Rosmarinic acid exhibits anti-inflammatory properties, enhancing the herb's potential effectiveness at reducing inflammation and soothing irritated tissues. Finally, tannins exhibit astringent and antimicrobial effects, further supporting comfrey's traditional use in treating minor wounds and infections.
Comfrey’s botanical name "Symphytum" is derived from the Greek word "sympho," meaning "to unite." This reflects its traditional use in promoting the mending of broken bones and tissues.
