How much leaves do you use?

150g fresh or 60g dried comfrey leaves

And how much petroleum jelly for 150g of leaves? Also, what kind of wax should be used and where can it be bought from?

I have made this ointment in the past using beeswax.  I have first put the leaves in oil (grapeseed oil or vegetable oil) and left it on a windowsill for a few weeks, strained the oil and then addes the warmed beeswax, just as the final few steps of this option.  Does anyone know what difference to the ointment this makes?  I do know the ointment works for bruising and still joints.

Shelly, i would guess using oil plus wax would make the mixture that much softer; using just beeswax does not sound like a good idea..
