Aloe-Vera-Benefits-For-Hair-1What is Aloe Vera?

Aloe Vera is a plant known as the elixir of youth with incredible healing powers. Like the cactuses it retains the water in order to survive in hot, dry climates. Worldwide, there are about 200 species, but only four of them have medicinal properties. These are: Aloe Ferro, Aloe Saponaria, Aloe Arborensis and Aloe Perry.

Healing powers

The range of healing properties is truly impressive. Most often it is used to treat burns, because it reduces the burned area and cools the injured skin.

Simply cut off the top of one leaf and spread ‘gel-like’ interior on the wound or you can peel the outer layer of the whole leaf and press it on the wounded skin.

It’s as effective for other skin injuries, such as scratches, wounds and rashes. Also, apply this remedy directly to acne and soon you will not have any problems with your tan.

Consumption of juice or gel has a beneficial effect on health. Occasionally you can add spoonful of gel to your daily diet. Aloe Vera contains “aloin” and is therefore a strong laxative.

How to use it?

Aloe Vera gel and juice have become increasingly common on the shelves of pharmacies and health food stores. Like many other supplements the rule here is: The simpler the better. Depending on the concentration, gel can be tasteless or hot. If you have difficulty with digestion of this plant (although this is rare), you can mix it with water or apple juice.
