History and Folklore:
Comfrey has been cultivated for healing since 400 BCE. It was used by such notable Greek physicians as Herodotus, Nicander, Galen and Dioscorides. It continued to be used throughout history and its use spread throughout Europe. The name Symphytum comes from the Greek meaning “Grow together” + “plant”. And comfrey comes from the Latin meaning to grow together. The Greeks used it to stop heavy bleeding and to treat bronchial problems while the Romans used it in poultices for external wounds and drank it as a tea for internal ailments such as stomach disorders. Another interesting fact is that in the past comfrey baths were very popular with women as they repaired the hymen, thus restoring their virginity!
