Comfrey For Bruises
A plant that’s native to Europe and Asia, comfrey has been traditionally used for medicinal purposes. It acts as a natural remedy for bruises. This plant contains allantoin, a compound that is believed to help promote the growth of new skin cells and improve skin healing. When applied topically to a bruise, comfrey is believed to help reduce inflammation and promote the healing of damaged tissues.
Chopping comfrey up finely or grinding it up in a mortar and pestle will allow you to use it as a paste. Smother your bruise with the poultice and cover with a cloth or clean bandage. It can also be used as a compress in the form of tea. Add 1-2 teaspoons of dried, cut comfrey to a cup of boiling water. Once brewed, wet cotton balls or wash cloth with the tea and cover the area.
