Ingredients:
 
1 tbs. lanolin
 
 
2 tsp. water
 
 
Use one of the mixes below for the Comfrey:
 
1 tbs. infusion of comfrey leaves  
 
                       OR
 
1 tbs. decoction of comfrey roots
 
                   (seebelow)
 
Preparation:
 
Melt lanolin and almond oil in a double boiler, add water and allow to cool. After cooled add and mix cod liver oil and comfrey. Apply gently to face and rinse off after 5 to 10 minutes. This is a rich moisturizer that boosts the water-holding capacity of your skin and helps plump out wrinkled areas.
 
 
1.      Infusion: This is a beverage made like a tea, by pouring boiled water over the comfrey leaves and steeping to extract the active ingredients. The normal amounts are about 1/2 to 1 ounce of comfrey leaves to one pint of boiled water. You should let the mixture steep for 5 to 10 minutes, covered, and strain the infusion into a cup.
 
 
 
2.      Decoction: This preparation allows you to extract primarily the mineral salts and bitter principles rather than the vitamins and volatile ingredients. The normal amounts are about 1/2 ounce comfrey root to 1 cup water. Bring ingredients to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for up to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and steep the mixture with the cover on the pot for a 3 minutes.
