Symphytum × uplandicum
Essence: Comfrey brings attention to the patterns that help us evolve and also the patterns that may be holding us back. This remedy can act as a bridge allowing for the accessing of old wisdom and the bringing of this into the contemporary.
Use: Use when dealing with anger. It gives the ability to acknowledge and listen to anger that can boil up inside. Through this, we can find constructive ways to communicate what is triggering the anger. Comfrey enables shifts in patterns that are not serving us, particularly patterns of addiction and dependency.
Description: The comfrey that grows in New Zealand is known as Canadian comfrey or wandering comfrey. It differs from Symphytum officinale (the comfrey of the old medical apothecaries) in that it is softer, and its flowers have a pinkish tinge to them.
Comfrey is a plant of contrast. Its pink flowers are delicate, charming and floating like pink bell-shaped dresses. The flower unfolds like a concertina. The racemes – the shoots on which they grow – are botanically described as scorpioid because they curve like a scorpion’s tail. The leaves are prolific, large, and grow as part of the hairy stem.
Comfrey supports and aids the knitting of fractures and broken bones from its effect on the soft connective tissues. It also can support the growth of hair, skin and nails. Comfrey contains allantoin. Allantoin cleanses wounds by removing the destroyed tissue and stimulating tissue repair.
Meaning: The comfrey remedy brings forward a recognition of our beliefs and relationship to authority. Comfrey helps us shift through insight, subconscious patterns and beliefs, and accelerate to meet with new awareness, learning and consciousness. The earth element of comfrey brings to the surface what is hidden and aids us in integrating changes. When working with comfrey as a remedy I am reminded of an adult that is responsible without being burdened. Comfrey supports clear, defined boundaries of roles within relationships. It helps bring awareness to judgement by perceiving how we judge and are impacted by judgement.
