2. Heal Wounds

Comfrey can heal wounds and rashes when applied as a salve or poultice. When absorbed through the skin, especially broken skin, the vitamin C and other antioxidants it contains can speed healing. Do not use comfrey on deep wounds, however, as it can cause the skin to heal before the tissue underneath, resulting in abscesses and infections.
