A comfrey poultice is a great way to support minor skin issues, irritations, bruises, cuts and sprains.
Servings 6 poultice
- 5 ea comfrey leaves
- 1 tsp arrowroot flour or all purpose flour
- 1/2 C water
Rinse your comfrey leaves under cool water. Pat dry.
Place the comfrey leaves on a cutting board and roughly chop with a knife.
Pick up the chopped leaves and put in your blender. Add 1/2 C. water (or just enough to cover) and the arrowroot flour. Blend it all up and make a thick paste.
Lay open your gauze pads and in assembly line fashion drop a spoonful of the comfrey paste on each one. Once done, fold the gauze over and place them in a freezer container in your freezer. (It helps to have a piece of wax paper between!)
When a comfrey poultice is needed, simply remove from the freezer and allow your body to heat up the poultice as it treats the affected area. You'll want to cover the poultice with a waterproof gauze and wrap to prevent the poultice from moving around.
Change the poultice every few hours.
