We are delighted to announce that the first batches of the fresh new comfrey oil macerate from the 2014 harvest is readyto buy now. It has been a fairly quick harvest season this year, and I love the quality of this macerate. It is so green and full of goodness, which bodes extremely well for all the existing products that we use comfrey in – Comfrey Ointment, Gardener’s Hand Balm, Reflexology Foot Balm and Herbal Foot Balm, PLUS a new exciting product that I am in the process of developing – more news on that very soon.
The comfrey harvest is going well this year, we have had a few days with the crop gathering and harvesting the comfrey leaves. This is done by hand, collecting only the best leaves, harvested at the optimum time – dry and using the younger plants. This happens in stages, mainly due to the fluctuating weather here (although we can’t complain too much this year!) and also the plants grow in some slightly different places – some are more up to the sun than others, and so they are ready first and the more shaded parts are harvested later
