Comfrey

Comfrey
Many people are familiar with the benefits of comfrey tea as a liquid fertilizer for your garden.  Last month you could see its purplish blooms in our kitchen garden.

Native to Europe and Asia, comfrey is considered a master healer plant that can be used from everything from drawing splinters to easing backache.

I have just discovered that comfrey is also good for travel - it was believed the comfrey leaves in the shoe would ensure safety while travelling, and the leaves placed in a suitcase would prevent its loss.
