Comfrey

Symphytum officinale

Description:

The hardy plant can grow to a height of one meter. Comfrey has been used in folk medicine as a poultice for treating burns and wounds. However, internal consumption, such as in the form of herbal tea, is discouraged, as it has been highly debated about whether it can cause serious liver damage.
