Because we cannot know individual circumstances or health conditions, we do not suggest that you use Comfrey oil/products in any form when pregnant or breastfeeding or if you have a current or historical problem with your liver.
Do not use Comfrey externally on new puncture wounds or deep cuts because the outer layers of skin will be stimulated by the comfrey to close and heal the outer layers of skin before there is time to drain and regenerate the deeper tissues.
