Aloe



This plant has been used since ancient times. The juice and gels are what is useful on this plant and can be used for most external healing that is needed. It has been used for arthritis, any type of skin irritation, shampoo. The juice is mildly antibiotic, astringent, anodyne, and a tonic for healing.

Demulcent, stimulating purgative, tonic.




Aloe is something I absolutely love for burns. This plant is amazing. I'm sure we're all familiar w/ it!

Stinky? I never noticed - maybe a preference thing!
