Make your own homemade Poultice

This natural poultice may help to fade bruises and relieve any pain and inflammation.

To make 1 treatment

  • 1oz/30g comfrey root
  • 1 oz/30g dried wintergreen leaves
  • 1 pint 12 floz/900ml water

In a medium-size saucepan, combine the herbs and water and bring to the boil over a high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain off the water, reserving the herbs.

Dampen a 12in/300mm square towel in warm water and place the herbs in the center. Fold the towel over the herbs and place the poultice on the bruise. Leave until the herbs have cooled. Reheat and use once a day until symptoms subside.
