Thant makes sense since it is 100% comfrey. Do it have an oil feel?

I would assume olive oil would be a good choice. An oil that will go rancid would not be a good choice, like maybe coconut oil or sunflower seed oil.
Cynthia Callahan wrote:in 1989 (about) I read an article about making a comfrey healing juice. it was simple to make, harvest comfrey, roll the leaves as tight as you could and pack tightly in a dark jar seal to keep out air. place the jar in a dark spot for 1 year. The resulting black liquid was then painted on the affected area, sprain, bruise... etc. I had made one batch and it lasted for over 5 years, I had good results, but I have not made it again. I am looking for more information on it. Does any one know the process I have described?

my favorite is agave, but many people say its not the healthiest and have concerns about it. but the taste is excellent. i am even trying to grow some agave cactus. honey is also a good choice, it has some healing properties, but one shouldnt have too much of it.
xylitol is the best choice for the healing benefits, and it tastes ok. you cant bake with it cause it wont react with yeasts, but thats why its so good for someone with a systemic yeast infection, like candida.
