  1. I’ve heard about comfrey for years from a friend who’s a knowledgeable herbalist and who occasionally drinks comfrey tea. I had no idea the flower’s so beautiful; I’ve only seen the dried leaves (or whatever she uses). People are divided on its use because of possible side effect like liver damage, but at 86, my friend doesn’t think she’s going to worry about that.
