posted 8 years ago
i would like to share this recipe that is used in my family for cenuries as very efficient remedy for healing all kinds of surface wounds, bone fractures, blood vessel inflamation and other stuff. ist based on fact comphrey root has natural hormone body uses to heal wounds... ingridients:
first you need comfrey root, its best to take it out in spring, march or april, wash it good, slice and dry in sun or oven but not more than 50°c... when its dry grind it to fine dust. than take bark of sambucus and hypericum flowers, and make same (dry and grind). last two engridients shouldnt take more than 30% of mixture... (if you cant find them its ok, comphrey can do alsoalone). after this, take bee wax and some oil. melt wax on small temperature and take off, than add rest of engridients. immidiately put in small cups that you can close. keep in cool place.
Sounds like a nice recipe, thanks, but it is missing yarrow! For cleaning and healing almost anything on the surface of the skin, yarrow can be very beneficial.

offcourse. but theres one small difference. yarrow contents certain chemicals than can realy speed up process of trombolysis, which means it can help you close up your bleeding wounds. just grind leaves of it and put on fresh wound. you can even chew. i use to do it all the time when i was kid. but comphrey realy makes tissue grow, and wounds heal in just day or two. some healers from my family used to recommand chewing yarrow in morning before breakfast. i dont know the exact reason and benefits of this but im sure you will not be wrong if you do it....
Trombolysis means it breaks up blood clots so a good time to apply yarrow is after the scab as formed and begins to peel. However, on pfaf, they do not say yarrow is thrombolytic ...instead "astringent" is listed as one of its uses. In that case, it would be great for fresh wounds.
