Comfrey is a perennial herb that likes wet places and is found in Europe, South Africa and North America. It has been used for more than 2000 years in traditional medicine. We can use the leaves and the root of comfrey internally or externally, depending on the condition:
- To heal wounds and burns, to consolidate fractures, to treat sprains and bruises, cramps and muscle neuralgia, to relieve osteoarthritis. All this is due to its healing and astringent action (it has a vasoconstrictor effect on skin tissues).

Saturn’s plants and Saturn’s qualities
Saturn is structuring in the sense of giving a shape, of finding boundaries, a framework, a border, but also in the sense of respect for rigor, seriousness, temporality, wisdom, even fatality.
It is a planet of social consciousness and collective as are Jupiter and Mars, but less voluble, more restrictive, severe, disciplined, conservative, it restricts us. Saturn is basically our fear of becoming, fear of others, fear of life, fear of love, and all these accumulated fears lead us to frequent questioning.
