I fine chop fresh comfrey and then infuse it for at least two weeks in olive oil. Melt wax in a small saucepan of water and add infused oil slowly until one achieve the desired consistency. I think it turns out to be 2-3 parts infused oil to one part bees wax ... or so.

Straining the stuff out of the oil would have worked perfectly! Now I know.
I also like the sun-steeped oil trick. That seems really great. We know someone who does that with st. john's wart.
The mixture is now decidedly way too much physical comfrey. Chuck it?
