1 tbs. lanolin
2 tsp. sweet almond oil
2 tsp. water
2 tsp. cod liver oil
Use one of the mixes below for the Comfrey:
1 tbs. infusion of comfrey leaves
1 tbs. decoction of comfrey roots
Melt lanolin and almond oil in a double boiler, add water and allow to cool. After cooled add and mix cod liver oil and comfrey. Apply gently to face and rinse off after 5 to 10 minutes. This is a rich moisturizer that boosts the water-holding capacity of your skin and helps plump out wrinkled areas.
1. Infusion: This is a beverage made like a tea, by pouring boiled water over the comfrey leaves and steeping to extract the active ingredients. The normal amounts are about 1/2 to 1 ounce of comfrey leaves to one pint of boiled water. You should let the mixture steep for 5 to 10 minutes, covered, and strain the infusion into a cup.
2. Decoction: This preparation allows you to extract primarily the mineral salts and bitter principles rather than the vitamins and volatile ingredients. The normal amounts are about 1/2 ounce comfrey root to 1 cup water. Bring ingredients to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for up to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and steep the mixture with the cover on the pot for a 3 minutes.
