Farm to Treatment Table
HARVESTING OUR BIO-DYNAMIC COMFREY on the ZENTS Family Organic Farm:
Seems like it was just yesterday when the ZENTS team was out on the Coen family farm planting our organic and bio-dynamic comfrey. Harvest time is here and the summer solstice was the perfect day to bring our comfrey home! It was truly
What is comfrey?
Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) has been used on the skin to treat wounds and reduce the inflammation from sprains and broken bones. Comfrey roots and leaves contain allantoin, a substance that helps new skin cells grow, along with other substances that reduce inflammation and keep skin healthy. Comfrey ointments were often applied to the skin to heal bruises as well as pulled muscles and ligaments, fractures, sprains, strains, and osteoarthritis.
What are Bio-Dynamics?
Bio-dynamics is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, food production and nutrition. Biodynamic farmers strive to create a diversified, balanced farm ecosystem that generates health and fertility as much as possible from within the farm itself. Most biodynamic initiatives seek to embody triple bottom line approaches (ecological, social and economic sustainability).
Watching this dream manifest before our eyes is a truly humbling experience! Our dream to offer not only amazing products with results but that are also organic and sourced ethically and responsibly is truly a highlight in the ZENTS journey. The “Farm to Treatment Table” concept is just beginning and we are excited to be a part of this new movement with so many other amazing companies that understand the importance of lessening our carbon footprint and protecting the potent healing power of our ingredients by reducing how many hands it will touch before it makes it into yours.
