Comfrey has a ton of folk names, attesting to its long use in folk magick. It’s been known as Assear, Black Wort, Boneset, Bruisewort, Consohda, Consound, Gavez, Gum Plant, Healing Blade, Healing Herb, Karakaffes, Knit Back, Knit Bone, Miracle Herb, Slippery Root, Salsify, Smeerwartel, Wallwort, Yalluc, and Ztworkost. A lot of these names suggest its use in healing preparations, and it can be used medicinally for bruises, arthritis, sprains and other conditions. But magickally, it’s known for money spells and safety in travel. You can slip some of the root or herb into your car if you’re driving, or into your luggage to make sure it doesn’t disappear.
Comfrey is a feminine plant, ruled by Saturn and corresponding to the water element.
We’ll be taking a road trip this weekend, and I plan to keep a pouch of comfrey in the car with us. Blessed be! <3
