I know that I am a practical person, I notice it myself but lately I’ve been told even more! So, as for the majority of the things I do, even my plants need to have an use.
I’m usually terrible at taking care of plants but my aloe plant is really easy, it can be kept indoors and don’t require a ton of sunlight or even water so it’s still alive!
Besides, I can cut off a branch any time I need some FRESH aloe; the plant doesn’t suffer, it seals itself back up and it will continue to grow.
Aloe gel is the clear, jelly-like substance found in the inner part of the aloe plant leaf and it can be used for:
– sunburn/minor burn relief – acne – psoriasis – frostbite – cold sores to heal irritated skin – healthy hair growth (if rubbed to the scalp) – moisturize dry hair
– boostsing immune function and destroys cancer tumors – halting inflammation – enhancing skin health – stabilizing blood sugar in diabetics – relieving joint and muscle pain – amplifing the antioxidant effects of vitamins – curing ulcers, IBS, Crohn’s disease and Celiac disease
As for me, added to my daily green drinks, give me that extra digestive power we all need.
