Comfrey Cell Renewal Cream

Why Buy products that are unsafe when you can make an all natureal product that is better and actually good for your skin

2 1/2 ounces oil infused with comfrey leaf and root
4 ounces comfrey water (make a very strong comfrey tea, let cool,
strain out the comfrey)
1 1/2 ounces coconut oil
2/3 ounce beeswax
Preservative (1/3 teaspoon grapefruit seed extract, found in health
food stores)
10 to 25 drops essential oil, if desired.

To make an oil infusion, crumble 2 ounces of dried comfrey leaves and
root into the bottom of a crock pot and cover with an oil such as
olive. Place over low heat for 6 hours. Let cool. Strain out the
plant matter.

Melt the beeswax with the oils in a double boiler over medium heat.
Remove from the heat, pour in the comfrey water, and mix with a hand
or electric mixer until thick and creamy. Stir in the preservative.

Note: This cream needs to be refrigerated and will last for two to
three weeks. Only use comfrey externally.
