No. But a comfrey compress regenerates and heals broken bones super fast, so it makes sense. Pretty sure you can't ingest it tho, so be careful.

Tooth paste: mix a few drops of peppermint oil to some bs. If desired, mix in some vegetable glycerine until pasty.

Mouthwash: no more than six drops total peppermint oil, with optional orange or clove oils. Add to 32 oz water, shake before use.

from what i have read people with liver issues should not ingest comfrey at all, and yes you are right its just held in the mouth not swallowed!

i also read that if you use toothpaste (even natural toothpaste) that contains glycerin it will make a barrier that wont let the comfrey saturate the tooth and gums!

thanks for the recipes :)
