Yes to Aloe Vera

Gulf Weekly Yes to Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a beautiful little plant that grows abundantly in our hot climate, but it often sits lonely for many months before it dies. Why? Because no one appreciates its true value.

I’m sure you’ve heard of Aloe Vera or seen it written as an ingredient on some creams or shampoos.

But have you ever thought of using it, or even planting it?

Aloe Vera has many applications, the most important of which are for external use such as creams and shampoos, or as a gel which is ideal for burns, cuts, acne and even wrinkles. It’s healing and regenerating.

And just like it’s useful for external use, it’s also useful for internal use.  If you take Aloe Vera as a drink, it helps with digestive issues and heartburn, and works wonders when taken after a course of antibiotics.

You can buy Aloe Vera gel or drink ready or you can take it out of the plant itself. If you don’t know how, ask any gardener to help you the first time and the rest will be easy.

Aloe Vera grows where you live, start today and make use of it.
