    Cant Believe they missed this one:

    You can use the leaf and the root, fresh or dried. Comfrey contains a special substance called allantoin, which is a cell proliferative. ... This is one of the reasons why comfrey-treated bones knit so fast, wounds mend so quickly and burns heal with such little scarring. Comfrey is often called knitbone or healing herb.

    Another Bonus of Comfrey is its Deep Root system is FANTASTIC for Companion Planting because it will pull up nutrients from DOWN DEEP where Fruit trees dont get them.

    Deep-rooted herbs, especially comfrey, are great at bringing nutrients from deep in the soil up to their leaves. All you need to do to fertilise your fruit trees is chop off the comfrey leaves and place them under the mulch under your fruit tree. The deep roots ensure that they compete less for nutrients with your trees.

    +++ On the TEA TREE listed in the article... we use it for EVERYTHING... In place of neosporin.
