Aloe has been used throughout history to treat a variety of skin conditions like burns, wound healing, after-sun soother and skin hydration. Ancient Egyptians, as far back as the 16th century BC, called Aloe Vera “the plant of immortality” and presented it as a funeral gift to Pharaohs.
ABOUT THE PLANT
Not only a Pharaoh favorite, Aloe Vera has been used for medicinal purposes in several cultures for millennia. Similar to a cactus with prickly leaves, the name Aloe Vera derives from the Arabic word “Alloeh” meaning “shining bitter substance,” while “vera” in Latin means “true.” The plant is a succulent, pea-green color plant that is now grown worldwide, but mostly grows in the dry regions of Africa, Asia, Europe and America.
Within each leaf lies a thick, water-filled tissue that can be a bit slimy; this is the “gel.” The gel of the plant is loaded with minerals, vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidants.
