Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is a succulent plant, known since ancient times, that has recently been “re-discovered” for its healing properties. Cleopatra is reported to have regarded aloe as a “fountain of youth”, and it was also used in the embalming and mummification arts.


Speeds up the healing process of the skin. Can be used internally, for candidiasis (fungal infection) The leaf gel is applied to burns, sunburn, infections, cuts, insect bites and stings, and patches of eczema. Use for topical application by first washing the leaves, cutting into chunks, then slicing lengthwise to expose the gel. Smear the gel over the afflicted are, or hold in place with a bandage.


Avoid whole leaf preparations as these are strongly laxative, and avoid taking internally during pregnancy. Aloe gel preparations applied externally are generally safe.


Be sure of the identity of any plant before you use it. If a preparation makes you sick or gives you a rash, don't use it, and throw it away! If your condition does not improve, see your doctor. Be sure to let your physician know  EVERYTHING that you are taking!>
