Where can I find English Comfrey? I found Comfrey but the products I found do not seem to be very healthy.

As far as we know, English comfrey is the same as common comfrey (Symphytum Officinale). It can be grown very easily and the leaves can be eaten as a vegetable or dried and made into tea.

Seven Seas now make a salve called comfrelieve that contains standardised comfrey extracts. You should be able to get it at a chemists.

Herbalist online sell the leaves http://www.herbalist-online.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=862

Blessed herbs sell roots and leaves

You can grow your own by just planting comfrey crowns in the ground - after a year they will have multiplied, remove a few, stick a few back in the ground, just the tops, and you'll get another crop a few months later, eventually you have a weed problem!
