> Can anyone tell me what is the best herb for applying to cuts or wounds? I have read that comfrey, plantain, and yarrow are all good. Is one of those better than the others, and are there even better herbs for that purpose?

Diffrent wounds, diffrent herbs. I have used comfrey, plantain and yarrow as well a many others for scrapes, cuts, bites and insect bites, punctures, gouges, burns, abrasions, bloody noses, tears healing of stiches and some deep wounds. This info could be a small book in itself. Some of my best advice is identify what plants (herbs/ weeds) are growing in your yard or surrounding area, research these plants and find out how to use them to meet your needs. This is the least costly and best resource for fresh products you can find.
