My husband hurt his knee so it is time to try the comfrey poultice. I debated the use of the small electric mixer instead of a mortar/pestal but decided that if I needed a back hoe to build my first huglebed then I could use the mixer. I also decided to create a dedicated rag system to keep large enough cloth lengths for the poultice to wrap around the knee.
