Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 8 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Everything from herbs to some personal blogs. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. So now, I am in Arizona, I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal biz!! So we now have Herbs 4 Health!! Numerous herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....supplements....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

Comfrey Root!

 
 
 
 
In Japan, the roots & leaves of this ancient healing plant have been used for over 2,000 years. It was originally called "knitbone" or "warrior plant".

Comfrey's main components are allantoin & rosmarinic acid. Now allantoin boosts growth of new skin cells while rosmarinic acid relieves pain & inflammation! This powerful healing herb is NOT to be taken internally, as it can pose a risk to the liver & can be carcinogenic. BUT it is awesome for external use as many still make creams, ointments, balms, etc. from it!!!

One has to be cautious of using comfrey on deep open wounds as it heals so quickly! It is such an excellent and speedy wound-healing remedy that it actually should not be used on deep wounds or lacerations. It could potentially heal the top layer of skin before the bottom layer, resulting in an abscess. So please do avoid comfrey for major skin wounds, and use it only for bruises, sprains and minor cuts and scratches.

It contains properties to increase cell division which makes it heal broken bones quickly & restore damaged tissue faster than any other plant.

Comfrey is a great addition to Herbmama's Balm!!
