This very simple homemade Comfrey and Calendula Poultice Natural Remedy Recipe is amazing for muscle pains, reducing swelling, bruising and even healing broken bones.
Comfrey contains allantoin, a compound that helps heal wounds and broken bones. Apply fresh, washed and bruised leaves directly to wounds as a poultice, or as a paste of powdered leaves.
Calendula contains phytochemicals that reduce inflammation, guarding against infection, and stimulating cell growth. According to Jack Ritchason, N.D., calendula heals by the action of causing mild irritation, and drawing white blood cells to the injured tissue. This in turn reduces inflammation and promotes healing.
