Comfrey is great in the compost. i can usually get three cuttings from it during the summer.

Make comfry "tea" for use as a foliar spray on your plants, or water directly with it. Always dilute first though.

We use ours fresh, makes a wonderful and VERY effective treatment for sore muscles and joints. Also used for helping mend broken bones. Use the leaves as tea and apply as a poultice (warm), or even better, make a poultice out of the root (it will be gelatinous) and apply that externally. Works really, really well.

It clots blood fast- use the leaves as a compress. I've been told that those that used swords had a lot of comfrey plants :)

As a salve or facial mud we just put ours in the blender with enough pure water to make a strong paste. Fresh is best IMO.

We grow a lot and have outdoor tubs and my favorite way to relax is to put that and some borage in with 6 inches of hot water, pull out the leaves after a while with a strainer and then fill the tub the rest of the way.
