Cannot live without my Aloe Vera in a pot
This happened in my kitchen
My neighbor lady rang on my doorbell. She was in tears with a towel over her arm. She had a really nasty burn mark on her arm from a hot oven she touched. The pain was of course bad, and she was so upset; I had difficulties to calm her down.
I put her in my kitchen on a chair. Then I went into the living room and cut of a couple of the biggest leaves I had on my Aloe Vera plant. I sliced them open and flattened them out just as they were. They are juicy and wet on the inside, and I did not remove anything. Now I took the two flat leaves and put them straight on her burn damage. I took a clean towel and put around it all and on that I use tape to hold the towel in place.
THE VERY NEXT DAY, THE PAIN WAS GONE AND THERE WAS A HEALING STARTED!
Aloe Vera - an useful friend
When you get a cut
My son is working as a glass master for over twenty years. He has cut himself so many times; I have stopped counting. Sometimes, there were so deep cuts, he had to have stitches. However, more times, he took Aloe Vera from on of his many plants and squeezed out the juice over the fresh cut. He did this many times and tried not to cover the cut but let the juice dry on the wound.
The next day, all the bleeding is gone, and the cut is closed. There is even a film over it to make it protected. Aloe Vera is the best he has ever tried. Of course, you can use these thick leaves on other bruises and cuts too. When you hurt your knees or fall on something that makes a deeper scratch, use Aloe Vera straight on the wound!
From nature for you
The Aloe Vera is easy to please
If you say you do not handle plants so well, I can tell you that neither do I. But the Aloe Vera is a greatful and nice plant to nurse. The growth is constantly from the inside and there is also where the stem with a flower comes from.
Aloe vera grows naturally in pretty dry areas and can manage on just a little water. But if you water the plant it will thrive more.
Out of the soil in the pot grows the plant babies! I use an ordinary spoon to dig them out and plant them in a new pot. They simply just start to grow there! My kind of plant indeed =)
What say you
Do you use Aloe Vera
Me myself and Aloe
Personally, I use Aloe Vera on eczema I have. I am allergic to Nickel and sometimes there are rashes that are quite deep into the flesh. I put on an out folded leaf and may be a band-aid on it just to make it stick there.
I also have Aloe Vera lotion for the hair and Aloe Vera cream for the muscle aches. This plant is so fantastic that I just have to recommend it to all. They are easy to keep in a pot in the window. They can be without water for days but look happier with a scheduled water routine. Sometimes, there are "babies" popping up in the pot. Then you can take that little one and plant in a new pot of its own. Share with friends and family!
Best of all is when there comes a flower. A tallstem with beautiful flowers that last a long time! Then you know that you love each other.
