Cooling and moistening. Tonic, demulcent, expectorant, and astringent.
Comfrey has been used as a healing agent for wounds, bones, sores, and ulcers. It also is said to have a soothing demulcent effect useful for sore throats, healing the lungs, rebuilding the intestinal tract, and intestinal distress. It is said to have one of the highest amounts of protein in leafy greens, so it can be added as a pot herb (nutritive) for cooking and eating raw.
