Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is truly a magical, medicinal, healing plant!  We have recently been to Sri Lanka and caught a bit too much sun – the perfect solution was peeling fresh aloe vera and rubbing it all over the sensitive areas!  A great trick is to freeze the aloe vera too and peel off one side and rub it all over the irritated area, whether it is due to sunburn, itching or sensitive skin, or sore muscles!

My daughter and I created a ‘How To’ peel Aloe Vera from start to finish!

We bought this Aloe Vera Plant from our local plant nursery in Singapore for $12.  They are easy to find and easy to maintain and keep alive!  They need sun and the soil shouldn’t be damp!  They like dry, sandy soil!
