The Aloe Vera plant is a cactus plant that comes from the Liliaceae family and has been used medicinally for a very long time in Ancient cultures. Not only do these plants look beautiful, they also have some amazing benefits, especially in the summer!
Take a fresh piece from the plant and cut a piece off, make sure to rinse it off with water first then get the juicy, gel like substance in the center.
Here are some uses for Aloe…
*Sunburns- Do you know fresh aloe is good to use on sunburns and it feels so cool and refreshing after your skin has been torched by the sun!
*Inflamed skin/Acne- helps reduce inflammation by stimulating new cells to grow.
*Men can use this as an After-shave- helps with irritated skin after the skin has been broken.
*Helps with digestion and keeps things flowing, for this I like to use fresh aloe juice!
*Moisturizes the skin without feeling heavy. It contains Vitamin E, C and Beta Carotene, so it also helps with anti-aging!
*Removal of eye makeup.
*Shaving Gel for the body.
*You can use this for a face scrub, mixing baking soda and aloe vera.
*Eyebrow gel to keep hairs in place.
*Hair Conditioner-helps with elasticity and prevents breakage.
