Aloe vera is an indispensable plant.
It's ancient, too, and reading about it, one find that it's familiar to many cultures.
Supposedly, its origin is Africa.
It's a desert succulent that doesn't need a lot of water.
Around our house, the indispensable part has to do with burns.
It's definitely a plant that should be kept in the kitchen.
As soon as a burn occurs, I run to the aloe vera, snip off a piece and squeeze the clear, jelly-like substance inside on the burned area.
It immediately stops the pain.
By the next day, the area doesn't hurt a bit.
People use aloe vera for many things including for skin care.
Some people claim aloe vera helps with weight loss but that hasn't really been substantiated.
(If it were, I'd be happy to drink a gallon of the juice a day! ha!)
HAVE YOU USED ALOE VERA FOR ANYTHING IN PARTICULAR?
