SOAP MADE WITH COMFREY

I infused the green leaves of the comfrey plant I had growing in a container to make this soap (not my pic).

Sunflower oil infused with green comfrey leaves.

I also use the oil in my Emu/MSM Cream to relieve the pain of arthritis. I had some leftover so I added it to batch of ZNSC.

There wasn't enough for any depth of color but it did give the soap a pale green tint. Shown here next to a white (Kaolin Clay) batch:

Looks wonderful, I have comfrey infused in olive oil, what is it good for
I use the leaves for that green color. Both the leaves and the roots are used in "healing" salves, balms, lip balm. Toxic if ingested.
If you've ever used soothing allantoin in creams or lotion, it is a form of comfrey.
Google to learn more.
