Comfrey and Suppositories via Methow Valley Herbs

comfreybees

I had to share this blog post by Rosalee de le Foret, over at Methow Valley Herbs! She has shared some wonderful insights about my beloved comfrey. One of the things she has shared is about suppositories, (herbal bolus), which are a form of rectal or vaginal administration of herbs  used in the case of hemorrhoids or vaginal infections. She even shares a recipe for making an herbal suppository for hemorrhoids on the post:)

Leslie, thanks for always sharing such interesting info with us. I will have to undergo a total hysterectomy in July and I'm researching homeopathic remedies instead of hormone replacement. There are many different herbs mentioned and one of them is comfrey. Now I'm on a quest to try and find the different plants and how to use them. Thanks again!

Leslie, I've had "issues" for years and for the past several years had cysts that keep rupturing as well. The hysterectomy right now seems like to only thing that will "fix" everything. We shall see...
Congrats on winning the beautiful pendant!!
