    The Honeybunny submission on edible and medicinal plants was just superb– thoughtful, helpful,
    useful. The healing salve recipe was particularly nice. One caution is that salves of this nature that contain comfrey should not be used on punctures or on deep cuts that have been or will be sutured. Comfrey stimulates fibroblast proliferation such that wounds more than a few mm deep are likely to heal over before the body can eliminate underlying bacteria, creating either an abscess or a wound that won’t heal. For scrapes and shallow cuts once they have been washed and cleaned these salves are super and roughly halve the time to heal. I used to work as an internist and teach at the Calif. School of Herbal Medicine. By the way Marjorie, please have your IT check out this article. There was no hyperlink for voting on my Mac (Safari, OS8.8). It would be a shame to leave Honeybunny out of the running.

    1. Hi Bob, thanks for the heads up Yes, i will have Jason take a look at this – we sure want everyone to get their votes!
