    Gaia Herbs Comfrey Compound 60ml

    A Gaia Herbs Comfrey Compound Herbal Salve is a topical preparation intended to address pain, inflammation, and irritation of the skin and surface wounds. It is important to note that comfrey salve is intended for external use only. People have been using comfrey in herbal medicine for an extended period of time. This herb contains several bioactive compounds, one of which is allantoin, which promotes the rapid growth of cells. Comfrey was often used to treat broken bones because herbalists believed that it made the bones knit faster and it is also supposed to contribute to rapid healing of skin problems on the surface.

    Gaia Herbs Comfrey Compound salve can be applied to areas of pain and inflammation as well as irritation. Minor cuts, scrapes, insect bites, and burns can be treated with comfrey salve. Applying Gaia Herbs Comfrey Compound salvee to open wounds may not be advised, however, due to concerns about absorption of comfrey into the body. Gaia Herb Comfrey Compound salve can also be blended with other herbs which may have antinflammatory or antibiotic properties for the purpose of providing a multipurpose salve for cuts and scrapes.

    Before Gaia Herbs Comfrey Compound salve is applied, the wound should be washed and patted dry. To keep the container clean, it is advisable to use a cotton ball to dab into the container and pick up salve, rather than using a finger. After applying the salve, people may opt to leave the wound uncovered to breathe, or to bandage it to protect it from further abrasions and irritants.

    History of Traditional Use of American Skullcap
    A member of the lamiaceae family, this plant has a long history of use in the western Naturopathic Tradition. It was used to support exhausted nerves resulting from mental and physical exhaustion, maintain normal balance in times of muscular tension, and support normal sleep patterns. Many Eclectic Medical texts mention its use to support the nerves during withdrawl from drugs. It is trophorestorative to the nervous system meaning it restores nutrition uptake to the nerves. Like most mints it is cooling yet has bitter principles and other complex chemicals making it a balanced choice as a gentle nervine.

    Structure Function Claim

    • Encourages Trophorestoration of the Nervous System.
    • Promotes Calmness and Support During Occasional Nervousness.
    • Promotes Adaptation to Stress.

    Mechanism of Theraputic Action
    This plant is a nervine and contains numerous flavanoids and flavones including the flavanoid glycoside Scutellarin, essential oils, tannins, and iridoids. Scutellarin acts like quercitin in that it decreases mast cell activity. It should be noted that since Skullcap started to be used as a medicinal plant it has been prepared from the fresh plant. For further information on Skullcap consult this online resource; www.henriettesherbal.com and go to King’s American Dispensatory.

    About Gaia Herbs
    Gaia's mission is to bring vitality to -and create a conection between -plants and people. Their goal is larger than simply producing high-quality, pontent herbal products. As steward of coevolution -the knowledge that plants and people have evolved together on Earth, forming a symbiotic connection as a result- Gaia is committed to leading the way in fostering the connection between plant and people. Gaia believes they must do all that they can to preserve the Plant Intelligence within each herb. Gaia must "plant intelligence" for the future. And they must continue to learn from Nature and encourage the sharing of this knowledge with others.

    Gaia Commitment
    How Gaia proceed forward in accordance with the virtues of harmony is as important as what they produce. At Gaia Herb, they hold themselves- and everything they produce- accountable to the virtues of purity, integrity, and potency. These are the pillars supporting their belief, their actions, and their commitment.

    Purity
    Each herb must be cultivated in accordance with Nature's intent. In order to deliver herbal medicines of assured purity, Gaia adhere to a stringent set of principles—rules they uphold as a company at Gaia Farm, and that their Certified Organic Farmers, Land Steward Harvesters, and Validated Partners must also follow.

    1. These basic tenets are the foundation of the Gaia Principles of Purity—processes and protocols beneficial to both plants and people:
    2. We strive to procure all seeds and plants from sources whose organic methods and plant quality can be verified.
    3. We adhere to strict Certified Organic cultivation practices and meticulous crop monitoring—and require the same of our Certified Organic Farmers.
    4. We actively promote growing, harvesting, wild crafting, and purchasing practices that protect land ecosystems and enable the indigenous communities that grow and gather for us to achieve a more sustainable life.
    5. For crops that we do not grow, we purchase our raw material from forest trade communities, indigenous growers, harvesters, and Validated Partners with a firm conviction to promote social sustainability in local communities and indigenous cultures.
    6. We uphold ethical business practices, both locally and around the world, to expand our sphere of influence beyond the acreage of Gaia Farm.

    Integrity
    As Gaia create herbal medicines, they must ensure the fullest possible expession of each herb. As herbal ingredients move through the production process, they are committed to using the right extraction technology and ideal concentration methods to act in accordance with the physical properties of the herb. With every herb that they process in their GMP compliant facility they apply ONLY Full Spectrum processing technology. Their full spectrum processing involves choosing the ideal extraction and concentration methods to maintain the integrity of each individual plant. They do not isolate or purify a single active plant compound all on its own, nor are chemical or synthetic compounds ever added to their extracts. Instead, they deliver the complete natural array of the plant’s compounds as intended by Nature, in order to facilitate the optimal physiological cascade of benefits within the body.

    • Right + Right Method
      The structure and nature of every plant is unique. To preserve the integrity of these chemical constituents during extraction, Gaia must choose the right method for the right herb, every time.

      For some herbs, the bioactive constituents are water-soluble, and can be extracted by dissolving them in water, like making tea. For others they use organic hydroethanolic extraction that utilizes water in combination with pure, food-grade grain alcohol, carefully adjusting alcohol and water ratios to capture the plant’s bioactive constituents while preserving the full chemical spectrum the plant has to offer.

      When delivering a medicinal benefit requires capturing the fat-soluble constituents of an herb, they use herbs extracted by a supercritical extraction technique. This process uses compressed carbon dioxide (CO2)—one of the basic elements of our atmosphere, and the “oxygen” that plants breathe and absorb—to gently extract the bioactive constituents, with no stress or damage to the herb, and no chemical-solvent residue.

      In some cases, they must use more than one extraction method to ensure that they have preserved and collected the most complete representation of the plant’s vital constituents. Regardless of the method selected, they never add hexane, acetone, methylene chloride, or other harsh chemical solvents. Food-grade grain alcohol, purified water, and carbon dioxide are their only dilutents for internally consumed products—and Certified Organic extra-virgin olive oil is their solvent of choice for herbal salves and oil products.
    • Low + Low Method
      Once the bioactive constituents of the herbs have been extracted, the extracts are then highly concentrated with Gaia's meticulous low + low method—low temperature in combination with low atmospheric pressure—to protect the fragile, subtle vital forces of each plant.

      Preserving the full chemical makeup of what they worked so hard to capture requires a slow, careful concentration technique involving low temperature and low atmospheric pressure.

      Their low + low method of concentration uses a low atmospheric pressure of 24 millibars (versus the Earth’s standard sea level pressure of 1,013.25 millibars) that allows the water and alcohol to evaporate slowly (much more slowly than other conventional concentration methods), while a low temperature of 60°C (140°F, nearly 75° below water’s boiling point of 212°F/100°C) prevents any volatile, subtle, natural compounds from being damaged. As it evaporates, the organic grain alcohol is recaptured and purified, creating a closed-loop system in which no alcohol evaporates into the environment.

    Potency:purity+integrity=potency
    The result of an unwavering commitment to purity and integrity.

    Plant Intelligence is Nature’s way of delivering vitality to people. This is true potency. But potency can only be assured when Gaia maintains the herb’s entire chain of custody in order to guarantee that the highest levels of purity and integrity have been preserved.

    Improper handling at any step can damage Plant Intelligence and compromise potency. Some companies grow or source their herbs in all the right places, only to use harsh chemical solvents for extraction or extremely high temperatures for concentration. Conversely, they may use the best extraction and concentration methods—but are limited by raw materials that are contaminated or compromised from poor cultivation, harvesting, or sourcing.

    Potency is a result of Gaia's strict adherence to responsible practices with every herb they source, combined with the use of the right + right method of extraction and low + low method of concentration, plus careful maintenance of the purity and integrity of each individual plant.

    Suggested Use
    Apply liberally and frequently to affected areas. For external use only.

    Warnings

    For external use only. Nursing mothers should not apply to the breast area. Keep away from children. Use only as directed on label. Safety sealed for your protection.

      I recommend this product!
      This is a unique salve formulation. Nature's "boneknitter," when used properly, Comfrey heals above and below the skin surface. Taken internally, Comfrey can damage kidneys and should never be given to children, like Golden Seal. But fresh leaves can be used to pack a woman after giving birth to staunch bleeding. I use this salve to heal torn shoulder muscle and stop the pain to avoid surgery. This salve can be used to heal deep wounds, as well as what appears to be early stage skin cancer.
