ALOE VERA IN NATURAL DIY – LEARN HOW TO USE THIS SOOTHING GEL
This is a plant that I grew from a cutting.
THE ALOE VERA PLANT IN SKIN CARE
Because the plant is 96% water, (just like us,) it doesn’t like wet feet. As the water content is very high, it can survive in very dry regions. and can live for 100 years in the wild.
The leaf is split down the middle,
the gel is scraped out then used in many remedies
Although the plants need to be watered, they only need it when the soil gets dry,
If you put it in a sheltered sunny spot either inside or out, it will grow well.
HISTORY OF THE ALOE VERA PLANT
The Queens of Egypt used Aloe Vera to keep their legendary beauty
Click above to see the website where I got my information
. Because the plant, is one of the oldest plants mentioned on record, it was used by Cleopatra and the early Egyptians, in their daily skin treatments.
The juice is pressed out of the plant and used as a drink.
Since you can drink the juice and use the gel, it has many healthy benefits internally and externally.
While applying water externally has no benefit, other natural skin care companies use it to make their product go further. As water is free, it will be more beneficial if you drink it.

Because of the soothing, healing and moisturising properties, the Juice is used by Southern Skin, We use it in all our products, instead of water.
Moisturising Skin is only one of the benefits. As well as soothing arthritic pain, Aloe also reduces body stress by cooling and repairing sunburned skin.
