Cloves Whole – Syzygium aromatic


Comfrey has been a cornerstone of herbal medicine for centuries. In Ancient times, it was carried on warriors to treat wounds in the field and help prevent infections. Similarly, it was used in ritual baths for women who were about to be married to restore their “virginity” and rejuvenate their skin.

The roots can be used to create a grey-green dye.
