Caution: Not for oral use. If accidental ingestion occurs, seek urgent medical attention or contact Poison Control Center. May be used on dry and cracked lips, but do not use on internal mouth sores.
Caution: Do not apply directly to open sores or wounds. As a moisturizer, the botanicals meet Health Canada's guidelines for infusion rates but reactions can still occur in rare cases. If skin conditions look irritated after use - discontinue use. Always consult with a healthcare practitioner. Sold as a moisturizer - not for medical use.
Caution: Contains Peppermint. Avoid contact with eyes, mucous membranes, sensitive skin, or fresh wounds or burns. Do not apply on infants younger than 18 months of age.
Note: In 2003, Health Canada banned the use of Prickly Comfrey and Russian Comfrey because of the discovery of pyrrolizidine alkaloids (echimidine). This ban remains in effect as it has been shown to cause liver damage - even with topical use. Common comfrey, S. offinale, is acceptable by Health Canada as it does not contain echimidine. This is the plant we grow and harvest for our products.
