I was out in the garden yesterday and when I was watering some of the seedlings, I saw our Aloe Vera plant. My hubby’s mum gave us our first Aloe Vera plant about 12 years ago. She gave it to us when we were living in our first house. We planted it in a huge pot and placed it outside near the shed. When we moved from that house we decided to leave the Aloe Vera plant behind as it was too big to move and hubby’s mum said she would give us another one. She had some huge Aloe Vera plants. There was lots of little plants growing everywhere in pots.
When we moved into our current house, we were given a new little Aloe Vera plant. We planted it in it’s new home and since then we have had to separate it a couple of times and re-pot it.The Aloe Vera has helped us with many things. Have you used an Aloe Vera plant before?
Here are five things that we use our Aloe Vera for:
- Treat burns from minor accidents (stove top, hair straightener, fry-pan etc)
- Apply on stings or irritation from insect bites.
- Use it for heat rash, eczema or an irritation rash.
- Mild and severe sunburn.
- Cuts and grazes.
Using the Aloe Vera for us has worked. But if you are unsure as to whether to use it or not for yourself, consult your doctor.
Aloe Gel: Harvesting the fresh stuffIt’s amazing how things clear up with using the Aloe Vera. It’s a special little plant with lots of healing benefits.
