Aloe vera benefits
Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) is known for its medicinal and emollient properties for skin cuts, burns, rash, minor sunburn. Some massage its gel on scalp to have beautiful luscious hair; some use them for facial mask to make skin soft and supple. It is used widely in shampoos and skin lotions. Excellent for indoor plant or in landscapes. Just cut a small piece of the mature leaf, trim the thorny edges, then slice the leaf across its width. The inner transparent, gooey gel is ready to be applied directly to the afflicted area. Use generously, it will be absorbed by the skin within several minutes.
Plant needs minimal care, infrequent watering and drought tolerant. It does great in bright sunlight, such as a windowsill or places with moderate light. Protect from frost.
