Cell regeneration and the healing of wounds – even some of the deeper ones – are comfreys burning secret. Cell regeneration?

The entire plant has medicinal purposes but the expansive root system provides the most relief and solves the most problems.
The mineral rich root system provides nourishment to a plant that resembles the aloe and occasionally blooms flowers. If it is possible, try to harvest the parts that you need from the plant for yourself. You will need to be careful in how you do this – the roots break easily and you will find that they cannot all be collected at once. It is better to take storks of it one piece at a time. (You can also grow a completely new plant from one small piece of the root if you so choose – another of Comfreys burning secrets!)
