How to care for an Aloe Vera plant
The Aloe Vera plant is mostly known for its healing powers in cremes and cosmetics. The gel that is secreted by the Aloe plant is said to help with eczema and cools the skin when there it is harmed by sunburn. Aloe is also used in yoghurt and juice because it was known to have a calming effect on the stomach. There isn't that much scientifically proven about all of these supposed effects but that does not change much about the popularity of this plant. Just be careful with going DIY on this guy because the raw juice of the Aloe is toxic!
