The Flower of the Magic Leaf

Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) is blooming. We call it the "Magic Leaf". Break off a little of the leaf and rub into an insect bite or on a minor skin irritation. (Legal disclaimer... only try a little in case your skin is very sensitive. Do not use this leaf instead of seeking medical attention.)

I would reference the earlier posting on the Comfrey plant but it seems my "Label Cloud" has dissipated! Aaaaaarrrrrgggh!
