The aloe vera plant is a plant that grows in the wild and has been used for a long time. Many people don't know the uses of this plant and it's a shame. This plant is part of the succulent plant community. It is from the Arabian Peninsula and it can be grown indoors and outdoors. You can find this plant in tropical climates all around the world. It is found in a lot of products on the market due to its health benefits. It can be used on the skin or you can eat it. Originally is was used as medicine for skin treatments. Do not eat this plant unless you have done the proper research on how to prepare it for edible use. It contains a orange substance that is a high dosage laxative. The gel on the inside of the plant is what you want.

If used right, It is an antioxidant and it's also antibacterial. It helps heal burns and cuts. It can also help heal mouth sores and can be used to soothe skin conditions. For facial use, if you have oily skin, this is the best for you. If your skin is already wet, it can be used as a moisturizer. You don't need that much, just a dime size amount will do the trick. In some cases, it can treat acne.

The gel can be made into several things. You can eat the gel as is or you can find aloe vera water. People all around the world also use it for cooking. When ingested, it can help improve the digestive system over time. There are several items on the market. It may work for if you have a skin disorder, a burning sunburn, or maybe you have a digestive problem. I've also heard it can fight anti-aging and it helps with stretch marks. Either way, give it a try. Some stores carry just a aloe vera leaf and some stores carry the whole plant. Either way, you will have a lovely plant in your home that will regrow it's leaves when you use them.
