Aloe Vera Plant

How many of us have owned one?? I know that my grandmother had one in her window all the time and if she got burned or we got any kind of bite, cut, sunburn she would break off a leaf and rub it on the area she would even use it to soften our feet. We would run around bare foot the entire time during the warmer weather and got heavy callus on our feet. She would cut off some of the leaf and rub it on after our bath. It was very soothing.

There are many uses for Aloe Vera Gel, you can drink it or break off a leaf and rub it on for relief of bites, sunburn, burns, facial use for clearer skin, helps with digestion problems, cell restoration and its rich in a lot of minerals.

Some of the vitamins and minerals in the Aloe Vera plant are important to our bodies. Some of vitamins and mineral are B1 B2 B6 B12, A, C&E, folic acid and niacin.

Some of the following are items they claim Aloe Vera helps with. Lowering blood pressure, reduce acid reflux, stomach disorders, kidney ailments, headaches and a lot more. Some others that are mentioned are scalp and hair treatment, dandruff, seborrhea, dermatitis, psoriasis and hair loss.  By no means, stop taking your medicine and go on Aloe Vera thinking it’s the cure all.

This plant has been in use by many people for hundreds of years, passed down from generation to generation but like all the suggestions we write about it’s up to you to try and see if it works for you.

I have had many of these plants and after reading about its use again I will get one for the house, where you really need it and once the weather gets warmer plant some outside in pots. They need moderate to bright light and they don’t take much water. They do spread fast so you will have a lot of plant to transplant or give away.

If any of you are using Aloe Vera and have any suggestions or information for us, please pass it on.

    I have 2 in the window sill now. They are awesome plants. I’ve never used them orally only topical.

    I read someplace that if you ingest it you need to be sure that you don’t eat any of the skin or little ‘nodules’ that connect the skin and fleshy part. Before you eat any of it be sure you know what you’re doing.
